2017 Monaco Grand Prix With Tag Heuer Replica Watches

Held in the small Principality of Monaco, right off the south of France on the Mediterranean Sea, the Monaco Grand Prix has been held annually since 1929. As a sponsor of the Automobile Club de Monaco as well as official sponsor of the Red Bull Racing Team, Tag Heuer Replica Watches hosted several guests and press to enjoy not just the Formula 1 race, but all the requisite fêting that’s associated with the event. Of course, no event like this would be complete without some appropriate timepieces. First, the new TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer 01 Red Bull Racing Edition watch, a subtly modified Carrera Heuer 01 honoring the F1 team sponsored by TAG. Complementing this “new”Tag Heuer Replica was the motorsports heritage timepiece classic – a “Steve McQueen” Heuer Monaco.


In this article I discuss my experience at the race as well as some watches. I’ve added photos from not just the event but Monaco itself throughout which I hope will help give you an idea of the setting.
Though it’s far from news at this point, Ferrari’s F1 team took the top two spots at the Grand Prix, with Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen taking the first and second spots, respectively. Red Bull Racing’s own Daniel Ricciardo came in third. What stood out to me was the sheer narrowness of the Cheap Replica Watches streets coupled with the tight turns throughout. For those who have been to the race and seen the track this isn’t news, but I really got a true feeling for it after a lap on the race route.


Though Monaco itself is small in size at .78 square miles, there’s nothing lilliputian about the place. Well known for its lax, or rather, nonexistent, tax laws, Monaco is the second most densely populated country in the world, after Macau. It’s populated with multi-millionaires, billionaires, their cars, and their yachts. For the annual race, the population swells to several times the 40,000 residents (I believe there are something like five or six public colleges in the United States that have more students enrolled) with the entire city-state essentially serving as the venue.It’s tough to separate Replica Watches with the man at the helm, none other than Jean-Claude Biver. Making his presence known by donning chef’s whites and a toque blanche, Mr. Biver pitted brand ambassadors, actor Chris Hemsworth, and Red Bull Racing’s Daniel Ricciardo against each other in a match-up worthy of Thor and an F1 racer: a fondue contest. Of course, Biver is known for making his own cheeses so it’s no surprise that this cheesy sauce battle took place. I’m not entirely sure who won, but I believe Hemsworth took this one.


Of course, this isn’t the first time aBlogtoWatch readers have heard about the connection between motorsports and Cheap Tag Heuer Replica. Ariel did his best Anthony Bourdain with his Chasing Time video at the Indianapolis 500 last year. You’ll remember he accompanied the lucky winner of the 2015 Watch & Experience Giveaway where he won a trip to the race and got his own Carrera timepiece.


Thousands of words have been written on the Carrera Calibre Heuer 01, a watch which goes into the “Hublot-lite” territory with gusto. A contemporary timepiece with the design language of a much pricier watch, it’s completely emblematic of the direction TAG Heuer is going in to appeal to a whole new audience base. Where the Monaco evokes images of a romantic technicolor racing heritage, this watch is the “now” as 2017 was Tag Heuer Replica Watches second year as partners with Red Bull Racing, which is about as long as the Heuer 01 has been released.


There were moments of some downtime on the Tag Heuer Replica, where we lodged and also attended several parties. During one of these brief moments, I got a moment to sit down with the brand’s newest ambassador Chris Hemsworth, who has played Thor in Marvel movies like The Avengers and Captain Kirk’s dad George Kirk in the J.J. Abrams Star Trek movie. He chose to wear a Carrera Heuer-02T Tourbillon in gold, but what I really wanted to know was what his on-screen progeny Captain Kirk would wear. He thought about it for what I thought was far too long before suggesting it would obviously be the Connected watch. I’m not entirely sure what generation it would be by the time we reach the Star Trek universe timeline but Hemsworth agreed. Anyway, he couldn’t have been more gracious and I look forward to seeing his watch appreciation in the future.

Cheap Tag Heuer Replica Link Watch Redesigned For 2017 Hands-On

The Link is actually one of TAG Heuer’s most redesigned modern-era watches, with a host of models that have existed in the collection’s history starting in 1987. That means that, for 2017, the Cheap Tag Heuer Replica collection turns 30 years old, and on this occasion, TAG Heuer offers a brand new design for both men and women. This is the TAG Heuer Link Calibre 5 collection for men, which debuts the new TAG Heuer Link case, dial, and bracelet. A women’s collection in a 36mm-wide case also exists, with quartz movements.

My first TAG Heuer timepiece was a Link, but it had a very different look than these new 2017 models. The TAG Heuer Link was always meant to be a watch that combined the appeal of both a dress and sports watch – but it does feel as though for 2017 these watches are a bit more on the dress-watch side. With that said, if you consider the Cheap Replica Watches a dress watch, at least it isn’t a boring one. The new interpretation of the Link’s “S-link” bracelet is decidedly dressier, and the dial is more simple, with an ultra-legible set of aggressive-looking hands and hour markers.

2017 sees three silver-plated dial color versions of the TAG Heuer Link Calibre 5 which are silver, blue, or a dark gray color. The case is all steel and 41mm wide, with a sort of cushion-style look which is integrated into the tapering Link bracelet. The case/bracelet integration makes for a cohesive look similar in concept to the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak or Patek Philippe Nautilus, which is one good reason such designs have endured for so long.

One design element which very much defines the 2017 TAG Heuer Link models is case polishing. Many of the Link watches I remember have all brushed/satin polished cases, whereas the 2017 collection has contrasting polished and brushed surfaces. This is most apparent in the bracelet, which with this new amount of polish offers a lot of shine compared to more matte-finished Replica Watches bracelets of a while ago. Interestingly enough, TAG Heuer makes some other watches with Link-style bracelets in both the Carrera and Formula 1 collections.
It is my opinion that it will take people a little while for the new generation TAG Heuer Link watch to grow on them. This is a very different type of TAG Heuer Link in terms of looks and personality. It is very rare that you have such a distinctive and bold-looking bracelet matched with a case and dial which are by comparison a bit more simple. With that said, I don’t think this is a bad thing, as we could use more interesting bracelets which call attention to themselves. One good thing is that it appears TAG Heuer has engineered the bracelet to be a bit easier to adjust. Some older generation Tag Heuer Replica Watches bracelets were incredibly complicated to adjust for size. Look at the rear of the bracelet and you’ll see small pushers that are used to remove the links. The bracelet also has a nicely made and substantial-feeling butterfly-style deployant clasp.

The case is water resistant to 100 meters, and over the dial is a flat, AR-coated sapphire crystal. With all the curves of the case, I sort of wonder what the Tag Heuer Replica would look like with a slightly domed sapphire crystal. The dial’s hour markers and hands are very well-proportioned with the latter being extremely well-sized. While most dress watches are a bit more subdued and discreet, the dial of the TAG Heuer Link is filled with large-sized elements ranging from the hands and the hour markers to the text and TAG Heuer logo itself. This is the most “larger than life” TAG Heuer Link I’ve ever seen.

Small details throughout the entire design help round out a sense of refinement, even if the combination of case design, dial, and bracelet don’t work for everyone. As I mentioned, I like the bracelet design, complicated polishing, and even things like the slightly tapering crown and crown guards. This is a macho dress watch for a new generation of mechanical Cheap Tag Heuer wearers, and they aren’t priced too bad given the generous level of detail.
