More recently, TAG Heuer replica watches announced a global partnership with the GULF, one of the most iconic sponsors of motorsport – the light blue and orange motorsport that most of us can easily recall. This led to the creation of the special edition Monaco Calibre 11 (reference CAW211R), which is available for review – with the iconic GULF color on the dial. As if that wasn’t enough, there’s another upcoming TAG Heuer Monaco Calibre 11 Gulf 50th anniversary CAW211T. If it looks like 90% of the other models, then you have to be quick because we’re talking about a very, very limited version here.
In addition to the existing CAW211R (special but not limited edition) in the current collection, is there another Monaco/GULF watch? What to do… ? Of course, the watches we show today are not special in terms of the product itself, and they are in line with what TAG has already offered to watch lovers. However, with the CAW211T, we are facing a true collector watch that has considerable collectible value because we are talking about a truly limited product. The cheap fake TAG Heuer watches will be officially launched at the 2018 le mans 24-hour endurance race (16 solstice 17 June 2018) to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first victory of the gulf-sponsored le mans – the 1968 version won by the team with “John Wyer Automotive Engineering” and its pilots pedrorodrirodriguez and Lucien Bianchi driving the GULF colored ford GT40 Mk 1 (iconic light blue body and orange stripes).
So what is TAG Heuer Monaco Calibre’s 50th anniversary CAW211T on 11 bay? Like the previous non-limited GULF special, it’s a real Monaco, meaning a left wrist watch, a 9o ‘clock crown and a chronograph putter on the right side of the case. This model is based on the 2015 AAA TAG Heuer Monaco Calibre 11 replica “Steve McQueen” reference. CAW211P, which we review here. This means a 39 mm x 39 mm fine steel case, polished and drawn surface, square design, sharp facets and straight, integrated lugs. It’s a back-to-basics model inspired by Steve McQueen’s iconic 1969 Monaco Calibre 11 worn in the “le mans” movie.
As for the dial, this TAG Heuer Monaco Calibre 11 Gulf 50th anniversary CAW211T is also based on “” McQueen,” “with two silver ivory square counters and historically relevant horizontal apps and faceted indices. The circular minute-per-second track still rotates on the dial, and the time is represented by a large faceted polishing pointer with red highlights. Finally, the GULF color is easy to see, with light blue and orange stripes, and the swiss TAG Heuer replica watches GULF mark located 6 o ‘clock above the date window.Powering this new reference CAW211T is the ubiquitous movement 11, which means the inverted ETA base movement (3 hands) is topped with a Dubois-Depraz module – to position the crown at 9 o ‘clock. The movement is visible through the rear cover of the case, providing 42 hours of power storage and shooting at a modern 4Hz frequency.
