Originally the Heuer Monaco was a flop that lasted only a few years; in an attempt to pivot away from it, Heuer introduced another watch with softer corners – the cheap fake TAG Heuer Silverstone. As the Monaco has hard edges that look like the sharp angles of the street circuit it was named after, its successor also took some inspiration from Britain’s premiere race track.
The Silverstone Circuit was built on a former RAF airbase with multiple straights and sweeping corners. The rounded edges of the perfect fake TAG Heuer Silverstone look like the flowing Copse corner, which leads to the famously sharp-turning Maggotts and Becketts. Like most classic Heuer watches, this was meant to blend into Formula 1 and be part of the track, and racing, in both looks and functionality. Heuer chronographs were built for timing a race car around a track, and to this day, AAA quality replica TAG Heuer is still part of the F1 paddock via the brand’s long-standing support of Red Bull Racing.
An unfortunate victim of the Quartz Crisis, the original Silverstone did not have a long life. Later TAG Heuer super clone for sale would revive the Monaco thanks to LeMans (and its star Steve McQueen), breathing new life into the square watch. The high quality replica TAG Heuer Silverstone was almost lost to history, but for the 150th anniversary of the Heuer brand, this watch was created as a limited edition. And though the rounded-edge, square style may not be for everyone, who wants to look like everyone else?
