Like with all Gulf Monacos Tag Heuer Replica Watches before this latest model, it had the crown on the left side of the case alongside the chronograph pushers.This model also used the pre-calibre 12 modified-ETA calibre 17 movement that was housed in the smaller 38mm x 38mm case that is 13mm thick.
The new dial swapped out the black dial for a metallic grey with Replica Watches Online Shop similar blue and orange stripes while making the quizzical choice to replace the date window from black, which matched the black dial, to a white date window rather than having it match the grey dial. The change from the calibre 17 to the calibre 12 wasn’t really that big of a deal, as it just marked the use of a Dubois-Depraz chronograph module rather than an ETA chronograph module.
The 39mm x 39mm case is a perfect square, and when you factor in the short lugs the length is a 47mm lug to lug. When you factor in the crystal, the case thickness is right around 15mm. There are a lot of straight lines here but the slightly cushioned shape of the Tag Heuer Replica case goes a long way in not making it feel like there is a box on your wrist.
The dial is laid out like the standard Monaco Calibre 11, albeit with the Gulf color scheme. At 9 o’clock is the 30-minute chronograph counter and at 3 o’clock is the running seconds sub-dial.
The leather on the strap is firm without being rigid, feels and looks high-end but still sporty, and is easily adjusted by way of the double safety push buttons on the folding clasp. It’s very similar to the strap on the standard Monaco Calibre 11, but I do want to give luxury tag heuer fake watches credit for abandoning the alligator straps that all the previous Gulf Monaco watches came on. They just didn’t match the watch at all, in my opinion.
This original Caliber 11 was used in the original Monaco copy watches for men, which just happened to be the first square-cased automatic chronograph.
