Retro Racer: TAG Heuer Monza Calibre 17 40th Edition 42mm Watch Replica

In 1976, TAG Heuer introduced its Monza model, named for the world-famous Italian Formula 1 racetrack. Forty years later, the Monza Calibre 17 recalls the glory days of racing while offering a great deal more than retro design. The 2016 TAG Heuer Monza 40th Anniversary edition watch replica CR2080.FC6375 is one of the most anticipated TAG Heuer releases for some time, and is an perfect blend of the past- two parts 1976 Monza and two parts 2000 Monza.

A Design in Perfect Harmony

To cut to the chase, the TAG Heuer Monza 40th Edition model replica borrows the dial and hands of the 1976 model and adds those to an enlarged version of the 2000 Monza case. Keeping it authentic, TAG Heuer has also stuck with the original design of offering different hand-designs on the two sub-dials- a standard fire-red hand for the elapsed seconds (time) and 3 o’clock and a square-bottomed white hand at 9 o’clock for the 30-minute chronograph register- the same design used on the famous Chronomatic-powered watches of the 1970s. Here we are with a design in perfect harmony and looking every bit a worthy successor to the Monza name.

Titanium 42mm Case

The TAG Heuer Calibre 17 watch fake offers the same square-yet-round cushion case design of the 2000 Monza, a favourite of TAG Heuer collectors. The 42mm case is made from Grade 5 titanium and features alternate brushed (sides of the case) and polished (top of the case) finishes.

To achieve the blackened look, the Monza has a titanium-carbide coating, a world away from the PVD-applied coating offered on the 1970s Monza, which more often than not was applied to a brass case. 

All in all, these changes benefit the new Monza, giving it a sporty and relaxed look that is not quite so idiosyncratic as the original. Titanium contributes to its excellent wearing comfort and the titanium carbide coating makes it highly resistant to scratches.

Sealed Caseback

Just as before, the Monza has a sealed caseback – even though the technology beneath is in no way so unattractive that it must be hidden. The caseback does not offer a sapphire back (the 2000-era Calibre 36 Monza did), but that’s a small price to pay, because the 2016 TAG Heuer Monza watch replica features this ultra-cool bright red Heuer shield with bright-white “Monza” text. 

The Calibre 17 movement is the same as the one used in the 2000 TAG Heuer Monza, the Calibre 17 Chronograph, which is an ETA 2894-2 movement, fitted with a TAG Heuer rotor. This is TAG Heuer’s “go-to” movement for two-register Chronograph layouts and is a reliable and well-sorted movement.
