Replica TAG Heuer Monaco Vintage CW2118 was released in 2005 to mark what would have been the 75th birthday of Steve McQueen (Replica TAG Heuer Monaco Steve McQueen Price). It has a crisp white dial (one of the first times a Monaco has been sold with a white dial) matched with bold blue and red stripes on the right hand-side of the dial and with red sub-dials and hands.The design of course was based on the driving suit worn by Steve McQueen in the 1971 movie Le Mans.
Replica TAG Heuer Monaco Gulf Limited Edition CAW211A was released in 2007 (Replica TAG Heuer Monaco Gulf Price), a black-dial watch with the iconic light blue and orange colours of Gulf Oil, the sponsors of the Porsche 917 driven by McQueen in Le Mans. The watch now carried the word “Gulf” above the date window instead of “Monaco”. The watch is a nice design and a real contrast to the first. In particular, I like the detail orange stitching on the black leather strap and the design of the right-hand sub-dial, harking back to the design of the Calibre 15 Monaco from the 1970s.
Another striped Limited Edition TAG Heuer Monaco was released in 2009, this replica TAG Heuer Monaco Gulf Vintage Limited Edition with a Grey/ metallic dial and the new Monaco Calibre 12 case (1mm larger than the previous Monaco; Sapphire Crystal; Clear caseback).The “Grey Vintage” is a lovely watch and if we hadn’t already seen the design in white and black. The two “Limited Edition” Striped Monaco series, it feels too derivative, a point made before at Calibre 11.
