The Replica TAG Heuer Monaco Reference 1133B is powered by Caliber 11 chronograph, one of the first automatic chronograph movements ever introduced. 6139. Although the chronograph movement is very important in the history of watchmaking, it is functional and worry-free.
The steel lever and spring of the chronograph mechanism are processed by straight grain and chamfering, the screw head is polished on a plane, the gear is circularly run-in, and so on. Even the countersinks of the jewelry and screws are polished.
But the remake of the movement is not just aesthetic. The number of jewels has tripled because three wear-resistant ruby bearings have been installed in the Tag Heuer Replica mechanism instead of metal bearings, which will extend the life of the movement in the coming decades.
The chronograph bridge was replaced with a new bridge with a significantly thicker thickness to accommodate the elegant, Art Nouveau carvings completed by hand, and then filled with black paint.
In order to show off all the work done by the movement, a porthole was cut out on the back cover of the case and fitted with a sapphire crystal. The crystal on the front is original acrylic resin. In the process, there is no loss, because the TAG Heuer Monaco Replica Watch steel dial coming out of the case will be included in the watch.
This watch represents an extension of Hublot Big Bang Unico 42 Replica series, and it also features an updated case design. The first link of the case is integrated with the new bracelet. The bracelet itself is of course the big news here. It has three links, the edges of their shapes echo the cutout area of the pusher and the main body shell.
These links have alternating polished and satin-brushed surfaces, bevels and chamfers, which provide a seamless visual continuity for the case and its lugs. Of course, the front of this 42mm case is a round “porthole” bezel, which is now familiar with eight H-shaped screws.
Compared with other Popular Replica Big Bang Unico 42 models, another clever difference is the use of application indexes at 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock instead of Arabic numeral decals.
The internal structure of the internal movement is clearly displayed behind the clear sapphire dial. Fans of Hublot’s latest Big Bang model will also be familiar: the hollowed-out Unico HUB1280 movement, which is self-made and equipped with a chronograph function. Cylindrical gear and horizontal double clutch mechanism drive.
The hollow date wheel on the dial side also appears in this Hublot Replica Watch new movement, as well as the well-known “fusion” elements, such as the overmolded rubber crown casing and the black composite resin bezel.
