One of TAG Heuer’s most distinctive replica watches because of its angular, square case.
The regular-production Monaco in blue – arguably the quintessential Monaco design – received a substantial upgrade, with the ETA movement replaced with the in-house cal. Heuer 02. The Copy Monaco Calibre Heuer 02 is now also available with a black dial, and a new, retro-inspired Monaco bracelet is also making its debut.
The latest variant still looks similar, but manages to stand out from the crowd thanks to the bracelet, which has not been part of Tag Heuer Replica offerings in a long time.
The new bracelet is modelled on the 1970s original, but has been made more robust while being finished better. The result is a bracelet looks original and sporty.
Despite the retro style, the bracelet is still reassuringly modern and solid in construction, unlike the slightly dinky vintage original. While the Fake Tag Heuer Watch vintage bracelet was made up of folded steel links, each link of the new bracelet is solid.
And the finishing has been similarly refined. The centre links are polished for a more upscale look as well as contrast with the brushed links. Additionally, the outer edges of each links are bevelled and polished.
The logo on the dial may be engraved like an old Replica Panerai, but it does not look attractive.
The color and surface of the dial look really good, and the artificial case is also very attractive.
The dial is sandwich-like, and the upper plate has a cutout for the hour markers to show the luminous paint on the lower plate. And engraved with the logo below 12 o’clock.
The Panerai Replica case is sandblasted and then polished to create an interesting, dimpled texture, intended to replicate the appearance of an old-fashioned case. Inside is the P.6000 movement, with a simple appearance and a three-day power reserve.
IWC has introduced a smaller take on the classic with the Portugieser Automatic 40 Replica Watch. Available in four references, three in steel and one in pink gold, the new Portugieser Automatic is 40.4 mm wide and 12.4 mm high, making it quite a bit smaller and slimmer than the popular Portugieser 7-days.
In terms of design, the IWC PortugieserReplicalooks very much like a contemporary model. In fact, with the railway minute track and small seconds at six, it’s almost a dead-ringer for the Portugieser Hand-Wound Eight Days ref. 5102.
Inside is the relatively new cal. 82200, which first made an appearance in the Da Vinci Automatic Edition “150 Years” in 2018.
Offering a 60-hour power reserve, the IWC Replica Watchesmovement is equipped with the latest-generation Pellaton winding system, which replaces the push-pull winding pawls that are found in the entry-level automatic cal. 32000. In addition, the automatic wheel, pawls and cam are made of wear-resistant ceramic.
