This year we have the honor to celebrate the 50th anniversary of cheap replica TAG Heuer Monaco. In the last year of the 1960s, the band released their iconic watch, one of the first automatic timers, which became a legend when it was worn on Steve McQueen’s wrist in the classic movie “Le Mans. To celebrate this particular watch, they have launched five limited editions of TAG Heuer watches in 2020, each representing a decade of Monaco’s history. The fifth and final watch was released last week, so we wanted to see the full picture, and now the last piece of the puzzle has been put in place.
The first cab off the rank was the Monaco 1969-1979, with a deep green dial and, unusually, Côtes de Genève finishing on the dial, a technique that is most commonly used to decorate movements. It oozes with the cool of the ’70s with a brown leather rally strap, and the red and yellow dial highlights.
Emblazoned with the color most strongly connected with the passion and full-blooded energy of motorsports, the red-dialed Monaco 1979-1989 is a tribute to Le Mans. The rich ruby tone of the dial is well contrasted with the grey rhodium-plated pair of dials, and the black belt provides a piece of shiny rouge through the pull hole.
Fast approaching the turn of the millennium, the Monaco 1989-1999 offers a more monochromatic approach, with a silvery grey dial made from sand-blasted rhodium. Dial text, hands, dial are red and blue tone, with navy leather watchband, red splicing, elegant style.
For the final member, we introduce the youngest and coolest, leather-jacked sibling – Monaco 1999-2009. The black charcoal dial, dark gray index dial, offers a laid-back style of smoke that feels the most modern of the five.
