From a design standpoint, Montreal is very popular, especially in this particular configuration. 110.503NC black (produced in 1974) has matte black dial, white pointer and red pulse scale from 12 to 3 o ‘clock. Like many TAG Heuer replicas of the time, its luminous index has formed a fairly uniform light cream bronze green. Montreal is powered by a manual up-chain Heuer Calibre 12, with a grooved button on the right side of the case and a semi-concave crown on the other side at 9 o ‘clock. As many Heuer fans have told you, the repositioning of the crown has made Montreal (and other Heuers of the time) more comfortable to wear – especially for those who prefer to wear a watch on their wrist.
The TAG Heuer Montreal replica watches case that you see here clearly sees some wear and tear in its 44-year life cycle, although it’s not a bad thing. On closer inspection, the original radial brush painting appears to be complete, and given the clarity of its edges – most obviously from the back of the shell on either side of its side – we can safely say that this Montreal was not polished to death at any time. Imagination.
What made Montreal more attractive than many watches of the time. While some brands began offering larger watches in the early 1970s (omega Flightmaster immediately came to mind), Montreal’s 42mm uncovered case is just one of the best sizes to fit perfectly to the wearer’s wrist in any case. I can’t remember how many times I’ve heard people say, “I love the way old cheap TAG Heuer replica watches look, but they’re all so small!” Thankfully, Montreal doesn’t fall into this category.
No one thinks fake TAG Heuer watches product design is still a bit retro, as has the recent watch industry. With the recent relaunches of Monaco, Silvestone, and more recently, Monza and Autavia, we still have a lot of speculation about what will happen as we move towards Basel world football club in 2018. Will this be another year in Montreal? While this will be a slightly ambiguous option, we will not rule it out, and if so, you can expect to see at least a slight increase in the market value of products like this.
