Introducing the TAG Heuer Monaco Titan Special Edition 39mm Watch Replica

The TAG Heuer Monaco Titan Special Edition 39mm watch replica CAW218B is based on the traditional Calibre 11 Monaco case.

2021 is proved to be an iconic year for TAG Heuer, the theme of the limited edition heritage. Two Carrera 39mm heritage watches were launched, namely the 844 Tribute Aquaracer replica. Now, the second Monaco LE replica to join the popular Green-dial edition. The TAG Heuer Monaco Titan Special Edition 39mm watch replica CAW218B is based on the traditional Calibre 11 Monaco case, but it is different: the classic Monaco case is made of titanium for the first time. 

Monaco Titan

The new TAG Heuer Monaco Titan special edition replica looks like the classic Monaco at first glance. It took me a moment to notice the most significant new change here, then I got it. The case looked different: gone was the traditional mix of brushed surfaces and polish accents. In its place, we see a matte, sandblasted texture.

This is the high-end Monaco V4 replica. Except for the 2018 Bamford Carbon version, the classic Monaco has been made only of steel since 1998. Why is the name Titan? This is not a typo, but a word game, because it not only refers to powerful or important people in English, but also close to the French word Titane.

The Silver Sunburst Dial

The dial sticks to what it knows with a beautiful silver sunburst pattern, which perfectly complements the titanium case. Black printing is used for the minute track and “Monaco Heuer” branding. I like that TAG Heuer replica watch has dropped the “TAG” part of the name for the dial. It offers better visual balance and obviously pays homage to the logo used in 1969 when the Monaco was first launched. The two black sub-dials, bright red accents on the central hand, and the red index marker at 12 o’clock offer some much-needed contrast. The indexes and sub-dials are coated with Super-LumiNova to ensure optimum visibility in any conditions.

TAG Heuer replica has opted for the vintage-style horizontal applied hour markers. These are by far my favorite markers found on any of the Monaco series. Their whimsical oddness just works for me. In addition, I think they complement the square shape of the case better than the traditional style of hour marker, pointing inwards to the center of the dial. Either way, I think the dial rocks. Combined with the sandblasted titanium case, this is a neat combo — just the right balance of modern styling and vintage influence.

Titanium Case

Although the 39mm square left-hand crown form of the TAG Heuer Monaco Titan replica is hardly new, the use of Grade 2 titanium for the case gives this familiar design a markedly different personality. While less hard than the Grade 5 alloy seen in many modern case designs, Grade 2 is essentially pure titanium, allowing wearers to experience the element in its unadulterated form. The distinctive squared-off shape of the Monaco, with its short wedge-like lugs, angled pushers, and slightly curving case sides, is given a fully sandblasted finish here to differentiate it from its stainless steel cousins. The titanium used is a lighter shade than many titanium cases in initial images, preserving the uniqueness and nuance of the classic Monaco form without hiding detail like a darker alloy might have done. Like other models in the contemporary Monaco series, the Monaco Titan offers a sapphire display caseback and a solid 100-meter water resistance rating.

Calibre 11 Movement

The replica TAG Heuer Monaco Titan Special Edition watch houses the modern-day Calibre 11 movement. Traditionalists will no doubt appreciate the Swiss marque’s decision to use the Calibre 11. However, other would-be buyers may question the rationale for not equipping the model with the sublime Calibre Heuer 02 movement. This latter movement is fully integrated with a column wheel and vertical coupling ensemble. The result is a superior pushpiece feel, a longer power reserve, less drag and a stutter-free start when actuating the chronograph.

TAG Heuer completes the Monaco Titan replica with an asphalt black alligator leather strap featuring silver contrast stitching and a Heuer shield deployant clasp.

Conclusion

The new limited edition TAG Heuer Monaco Titan replica brings a more aggressive new dimension to the classic Calibre 11 Monaco series without sacrificing the refined essence of the series. In a market that is increasingly flooded with titanium designs, the limited edition TAG Heuer Monaco Titan replica may not Completely groundbreaking, but due to its unorthodox case material and attractive colors, it does provide one of the most interesting and unique packaging in the current Monaco collection. 

TAG Heuer Monaco Titan replica will only produce 500 samples, which are now available through authorized resellers at a suggested retail price of $7,900. More information, please visit our latest replica TAG Heuer watch listing, we are selling almost all model AAA grade 1 :1 cloned TAG Heuer watches.

Review the TAG Heuer Monaco Gulf Calibre 11 39mm watch replica

The TAG Heuer Monaco Gulf Calibre 11 39mm watch replica CAW211R was launched to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the brand’s relationship with Gulf Motorsports.

The TAG Heuer Monaco Gulf Calibre 11 39mm watch replica CAW211R was launched to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the brand’s relationship with Gulf Motorsports. My time on the watch made me realize that it may well be my favorite Monaco. Since this Monaco Gulf watch differs only in style from the standard TAG Heuer Monaco 11 movement, I wanted to take some time to cover the evolution of the Monaco Gulf so that everyone can understand its background, evolution and history.

TAG Heuer And Gulf Oil

A certain degree of drama has always been inherent in endurance racing. It’s one of the reasons the 24 Hours of Le Mans has been adapted by Hollywood so often. After all, humans are only meant to go so fast, for so long, and the racers that test their durability to that degree are lauded for their resilience and the strength of their equipment. For this exact reason, no race team was more highly regarded in the late 1960s and early 1970s than John Wyer Automotive. Jacky Ickx, Derek Bell, Brian Redman, and Pedro Rodriguez are just a few of the legendary drivers to race under the livery (other than Siffert himself). A by-product of the success and pageantry of John Wyer Automotive, the Gulf Oil and TAG Heuer (née Heuer) branding has evolved into an intrinsic part of auto racing history. It’s a commercial relationship that helped define that period in the popular imagination, which is exactly what the TAG Heuer Monaco Gulf Edition replica is meant to celebrate.

TAG Heuer Monaco Gulf ’Vintage’ replica ref. CW2118 & ref. CW211A (2005-2007)

TAG Heuer Monaco Gulf ’Vintage’ replica ref. CW2118 & ref. CW211A (2005-2007)

This Monaco Gulf celebrates the 50th anniversary between TAG and Gulf, the first Gulf Monaco came out in 2005. The TAG Heuer ‘Vintage’ Monaco reference CW2118 replica was a limited edition run of 4,000 watches with a white dial featuring red and blue stripes. These were inspired by the colors of Steve McQueen’s racing suit in Le Mans. The release in 2005 also coincided with McQueen’s 75th birthday.

Like with all Gulf Monacos replica before this latest model, the crown is on the case left alongside the chronograph pushers. It was, the only Monaco without “Gulf” on the dial (read the Calibre 11 article for details). This model has the modified-ETA calibre 17 movement housed in the smaller 38mm x 38mm, 13mm thick case. While it was a limited edition run, it’s not super difficult to find one of these on the secondary market (here are the current listings on Chrono24) ranging between around $3,500-$6,000 depending on condition, box, and papers.

The second iteration was the Gulf II Monaco replica ref. CW211A which was technically the same as its predecessor but with a new dial. Now black with orange and blue, it was an homage to McQueen’s Gulf Oil Porsche 911 in Le Mans. It also features the Gulf logo on the dial, with the ‘Monaco’ text moved to 12 o’clock. As with the CW2118 replica, this Gulf II Monaco came in a limited edition run of 4,000 units. These are harder to find than the white-dialed version, likely because the black dial just looks better. There are a few units available (current listings here) ranging between $3,500- $6,500.

TAG Heuer Monaco Gulf CAW2113 Calibre 12 replica (2009)

TAG Heuer Monaco Gulf CAW2113 Calibre 12 replica (2009)

Two years later saw the limited edition Monaco Gulf ref. CAW2113 replica with some aesthetic changes as well as a new case and new movement.

The new dial swapped out the black dial for a metallic grey with blue/orange stripes while quizzically also replacing the black date window. They replaced the matching black dial with a white date window rather than having it match the grey dial. The change from the calibre 17 to the calibre 12 wasn’t really that big of a deal. It did mark the use of a Dubois-Depraz chronograph module rather than an ETA chronograph module.

The new case size here grew by 1mm to 39mm x 39mm and 14mm thick with an exhibition caseback. Another limited edition run of 4,000 units.

The TAG Heuer Monaco Gulf Edition Calibre 11 replica CAW211R

This CAW211R borrows the successful form factor of the Tag Heuer Monaco Calibre 11 CAW211P replica from 2015, the most authentic revival of the original 1133B (the very first Monaco; B for blue), and subverts its classical detailing with the graphic Gulf design. It’s a decision that transforms the watch’s appeal and embraces the excess of the Monaco’s earliest look. 

CAW211R

This watch has an appearance nearly identical to the original Tag Heuer Monaco replica, a watch defined by its slab-sided case profile, sharp angles, raised crystal, tiered pushers, horizontal hour markers, and date aperture at six o’clock. The biggest difference in function between the original Monaco and the CAW211R is the movement inside. There’s a sapphire crystal on the caseback that allows a view of the movement and the decoration that TAG Heuer has applied, namely côtes de Genève on the branded rotor and perlage visible underneath it. Overall, the case features a satin finish with polished bevels. 

The dial features the emblematic colors of the Gulf Oil livery, solid petroleum blue on the left side and light blue and orange stripes cascading down the entire right side of the dial. The distinctive Gulf color palette at use is vibrant and full of life, just like the high-speed cars that wore it. The dial includes a small Gulf Oil logo positioned above the date window at six o’clock. It also features the original Heuer shield logo compared to the modern TAG Heuer branding, a decision that reflects the unique heritage this watch is meant to honor. Finally, the red lacquered central chronograph seconds hand matches the red five-minute markers and the tips of the central hour and minute hand.

CAW211R

On the wrist, the Monaco wears unlike any other watch out there. Its 39mm by 39mm cushion shape and stubby lugs create an interesting dynamic on the wrist. With its tall sapphire crystal and three-part case construction, the watch has a unique and definite presence, one that is surprisingly easy to get used to when worn. The strap, which tapers substantially, helps quite a bit in this regard, thanks to its easy-to-adjust, Heuer-branded deployant buckle. The perforated design of the strap, made of blue calfskin leather, is another distinct aesthetic choice that works well with its contrast orange stitching.
