Titanium has really made a splash this year at perfect replica TAG Heuer with the release of several skeletonised Monacos, following on from the black DLC-coated titanium case of the 2022 Monaco Special Edition nicknamed the “Dark Lord”.
The cult square design of the 100m water-resistant case, measuring 39mm x 39mm, is crafted in grade 5 titanium with a contemporary black DLC coating. Combining resilience and lightness, the titanium case has a thickness of 14.7mm, including the stylish domed and bevelled sapphire crystal protecting the dial. It’s not slim, but the thickness is visually attenuated by the sleek dark DLC coating, which is also applied to the rectangular pushers and crown on the right side of the case. Looking closely, you can appreciate the alternating brushed and polished areas of the case that underscore its unconventional, unmistakable design.
DEMURE BY DAY, EXTROVERTED AT NIGHT
Perhaps the darkest, stealthiest 1:1 fake TAG Heuer Monaco to date, the Night Driver flaunts a subdued grey monochromatic dial. Using the “circle in the square” two-piece dial construction, the central area is an anthracite colour with a lighter grey tone for the recessed, squared sub-dials and the outer area of the dial. The grainy matte finishing of the outer dial and sub-dials – elapsed hours at 9 o’clock and elapsed minutes at 3 o’clock – has an almost fibrous texture reminiscent of grey felt fabric contrasting with the smoother texture of the circle. Discreet but effective, the small seconds are indicated just above the date window at 6 o’clock with a simple crosshair.
The faceted black lacquered indices of the top quality replica watches are placed on the outer light grey part of the dial, except for the double indices at noon, matching the black hands inside the sub-dials and the central hour and minute hands. So far, there is nothing radically different from other luxury super clone TAG Heuer Monacos fitted with the Heuer 02 movement. That is until this watch hits the dark.
It might be demure by day, but when the AAA quality replica TAG Heuer Night Rider encounters low-light conditions, it literally lights up. And we are not just referring to the luminescent hands and hour dots. No, this is full-on blue luminescence, and the textured chronograph sub-dials and outer dial are fully luminescent for up to three hours if fully charged, something you might like to take into account if you are planning on getting a good night’s sleep.
The black DLC-coated titanium case of the high quality fake TAG Heuer Monaco Chronograph Night Driver takes a lot of the heft out of the equation, giving the watch a sleek, contemporary vibe. Coupled with the muted monochromatic grey dial, the effect is almost refined, a strange word to use in the context of the Swiss movement copy TAG Heuer Monaco but fitting. However, switch off the lights, and the party kicks off, illuminating the night with a cool blue glow. I’m not sure of its practicality as a companion for performing chronograph readings while driving at night, but it will get you noticed.
