Technically speaking, the new replica 2021 TAG Heuer Monaco Green Dial LE combines green and black, but no matter how you look at another green dial, we think this is one of the most beautiful dials made by TAG Heuer. This delicious TAG Heuer Monaco Green Dial Limited Edition replica CBL2116 is limited to 500 pieces. It is to celebrate this year’s Monaco History Grand Prix, in which TAG Heuer is the official sponsor.
The Grand Prix de Monaco Historique
Every two years, Monaco plays host to this historical showcase race. In the classic car racing community, it is supposedly something of a highlight in the calendar. Classic car racing enthusiasts are treated to a spectacle of historic Grand Prix racing around the legendary Monaco circuit. More than 200 Grand Prix cars representing 50 different carmakers and 21 countries enter the event every two years.
The event consists of 7 different races, each representing the different periods of Grand Prix racing from the 1930s to the 1970s. The cars are selected for participation because of their historical value and level of originality. I can imagine it’s quite the sight to see these vintage Grand Prix cars taking to the track once again in all their glory. I’m not a traditional Formula One fan, but I can imagine that this is something that even modern-day racing fans could appreciate. It’s difficult not to care about the origins of a sport when you care about it.
You may recall that this is not the first green-dialed Monaco replica from TAG Heuer. In 2019, the brand released a green-dialed model with gorgeous “Cotes de Geneve” as part of the Monaco 50th Anniversary collection replica. It represented the first decade of 1969-1979. This is even more of a significant honor when you remember that Heuer first released the Monaco in 1969 as the 1133B or 1133G. The letter corresponded to the dial color, blue or grey. That said, I guess it’s surprising that the 2019 anniversary edition was green rather than blue or grey? Either way, it was a stunning dial. The green subtly changed color in the light thanks to those Geneva stripes, and the yellow highlights complemented the green wonderfully. It was, by far, the best of the five anniversary editions.
Today’s green dial is a little bit different. The rich emerald green hue takes center stage, complemented by the black sub-dials. While we have established that green is not new to the TAG Heuer Monaco replica lineup, this is a never-seen-before dial tint and adds a classy-yet-modern take on the Monaco replica. The degradé shading from light green in the center to dark green at the edge is mature and feels stylish and modern. While green is often associated as a British racing color, eagle-eyed readers may notice the connection with the famous covered portion of the Monaco Grand Prix track, preceding the chicane by the port. A white printed minute track and sundial markings and rhodium-plated indexes and hands with white Super-LumiNova offer some contrast to the dial.
39 mm Case
The 39mm case hasn’t changed in size or proportion. It’s the classic slab of watchmaking we know and love, a design that goes all the way back to the late 1960s. The Monaco replica has graced the wrists of some of the greatest names of all time, although it’s undoubtedly most well-known as the watch worn by Steve McQueen. When you take in the whole appearance of this watch, you realise that it’s a visually interesting piece. I love the number of layers this thing has. The case has a polished chamfer to it, the mostly-square bezel sits proud of it, and the square sapphire crystal protrudes significantly, just like the Plexiglass of the watches from the 60s.
Calibre Heuer 02
Inside the case is a thoroughly modern movement, the calibre Heuer 02. It’s a round movement with a 4Hz beat rate and 80-hour power reserve. To show that TAG Heuer has made an effort, it’s coloured the writing on the blackened winding rotor in green, and the column wheel which controls the chronograph is also in green. It’s a little touch, but it’s better than them simply shoving the same old movement in there.
The watch is water-resistant to 100 m, although I wouldn’t bet on the alligator leather strap surviving submersion too well. TAG Heuer Monaco Green Dial watch replica will be making 500 of these, each with a price tag of $6,650.
