TAG Heuer Monaco Heuer 02 Blue Dial Watch replica CBL2111.FC6453 provides a blue sunburst dial and a contrasting silver chronograph, red hands, and a square with a wide sapphire crystal and faceted edges. These features are all TAG Heuer’s early Monaco Calibre Continue to improve on the basis of 12 models. The registers that were once flat are now slightly recessed, giving the design more depth and interest.
This TAG Heuer Monaco Heuer 02 replica retains the essential, meaning all the elements that have made the Monaco successful and easily recognizable. The case of this new version still has the cult square design, and even though the engine that runs inside is larger, it still measures 39mm x 39mm. The bezel is still vertically satin-brushed, the top of the lugs are still polished and the flanks are satin-brushed too. On top, we still find the nicely executed, yet very exposed chamfered sapphire crystal. Being the replacement for the Calibre 12 model, the pushers and the crown are both located at 3 o’clock. Water-resistance is still rated at 100m.
So what changes on the case…? Not many actually, except for just a bit more thickness on the case, due to the Heuer 02 calibre. The caseback also changes, with a larger window on the movement. The final evolution – and a good one – is to be seen on the crown. As the watch now features an integrated movement and not the modular ETA/Dubois Depraz calibre, the crown and the pushers are located on the same level. Apart from these mostly technically driven evolutions, the look is just about the same.
Being a modern, slightly more classic version of the Monaco and not a vintage-inspired watch, this replica TAG Heuer Monaco CBL2111.FC6453 is worn on an alligator strap, executed in dark blue and secured to the wrist by a folding clasp. No racing-inspired strap here, but you can always change that.
Regarding the dial, the implementation of a new movement implies quite a few evolutions. The dial with its sunray brushed blue style, the radial applied and faceted indexes, the circular seconds track with luminous dots, the TAG Heuer logo and the rhodium-plated hands are all the same. Also, no changes regarding the contrasting white sub-dials and the red chronograph hands (central and sub-counters). Yet, as you can see, these counters are now recessed and are chamfered on the periphery.
The replica TAG Heuer Monaco Blue Dial Watch is a tri-compax watch. For years, the Monaco has been delivered with a bi-compax layout, with small seconds and 30-minute counter. Now, the two white sub-dials are dedicated to the elapsed minutes and hours. In addition to that, the Monaco Heuer 02 features a small seconds, which has been discreetly implemented at 6 o’clock, with just a crosshair. In fact, it even overlaps the date window: a nice trick to keep this watch balanced.
Now, for the first time, a Monaco chronograph replica is powered by a true manufacture movement. The Calibre Heuer 02 is an eye-catcher with its red column wheel, black rotor and decorative cutouts. Mechanical watch fans can use it to measure intervals of up to 12 hours instead of just 30 minutes, and when fully wound, the Monaco Caliber 02 runs for up to 80 hours — almost twice as long as its original 42-hour power reserve — so you can take off the watch on Friday and put it back on Monday morning without any problem or interruption. And the new movement complements the Monaco visually, with its modern, high-tech look, generous diameter of 31 mm and large sapphire crystal in the caseback. The CBL2111.FC6453 is much more appealing from the back than the similarly designed Monaco Calibre 12 with the ETA 2894 movement, or the Monaco Calibre 11 with a modified Sellita SW300 movement and the crown on the left.
However, we found one downside to the watch’s excellent craftsmanship: the heavy 39mm by 39mm stainless steel case and its striking 15.1mm height, combined with its square shape, isn’t as comfortable to wear as you might hope. But that certainly won’t stop fans of Monaco from buying this new version, the first chronograph with a 100% in-house movement, the replica TAG Heuer Monaco Heuer 02 reference CBL2111.FC6453 will be priced at EUR 5,400 (or CHF 5,800 or USD 5,950).
