TAG Heuer Monaco Chronograph Forged Carbon Bamford Replica Hands-On

The 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 Cheap Tag Heuer Replica Monaco, while their black PVD steel choice of material is not. The forged carbon case acts like the forged carbon we have seen elsewhere – it reminded me of this, mind you, considerably less expensive Tempest Forged Carbon – although I am sure it isn’t easy to carve the sharp corners and stubby lugs from this ultra-hard material.

The arrangement of the horizontal indices is also close to the famed old Monaco; in sharp contrast with them stands the vibrant blue prints everywhere else on the dial and hands. The upside to this is that legibility really is quite good – there is plenty of contrast between the background and the hands and their respective tracks – while the downside is that the rather ostentatious text above the date really jumps out at you. Frankly, I could do without the Bamford text, or at least of it being in bold – the caseback already pays tribute to the man and his Bamford Tag Heuer Replica Watches Department operation.

Speaking of which, while TAG Heuer and Zenith have announced their partnership with BWD last year, this Monaco Forged Carbon marks the first official co-branded piece where a collaborative watch is distributed by Tag Heuer Replica boutiques and e-commerce, in select countries. Beyond this distribution, I am not sure what other distinction there is to be aware of – calling this the first may just be a marketing spin on what is an already ongoing partnership.

Around the wrist, as I said, 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 Best Tag Heuer Replica Watches Monaco Chronograph Forged Carbon isn’t heavy at all. Speaking of the movement, the Calibre 11 is a base Sellita SW-300 with a Dubois-Depraz chronograph module on top. Frequency is a modern 4Hz while power reserve is a low 40 hours.

All things considered, this new Fake Tag Heuer Monaco Watches Chronograph in forged carbon is a most welcome addition to the Monaco family that was, in all fairness, getting a bit self-absorbed with all the vintage stuff. The Monaco is a brilliant piece of design and nothing testifies to that fact more than how you can take it and dress it up in the materials and boldness of a very different age with such ease and success.
