The latest and boldest TAG Heuer, apparently thought up in deep denial of the vintage watch trend, is the TAG Heuer Monaco Chronograph Forged Carbon Bamford Replica Edition. Here’s a hands-on look at this, ehm, striking looking watch.
The Cheap Tag Heuer Replica 39mm wide case wears much larger than that figure would suggest and in that, this Bamford edition is like any other Monaco. The arrangement of the left-hand crown and right-hand pushers is in line with the traditional Monaco, while their black PVD steel choice of material is not.
The chunky Monaco case wears more like a 42, perhaps even 43mm case as it takes up considerable real estate, while the thickness of the case – courtesy of the Calibre 11 movement and the box crystal – further adds to the perceived heft; even if this Tag Heuer Replica Monaco Chronograph Forged Carbon isn’t heavy at all.
All things considered, this new Monaco Chronograph in forged carbon is a most welcome addition to the Quality Fake Tag Heuer Monaco family that was, in all fairness, getting a bit self-absorbed with all the vintage stuff.
