Thanks to decades of supporting racing all over the world, perfect replica TAG Heuer enjoys a close and important relationship with the world of motorsports. Even the merger of TAG and Heuer was born of a shared familiarity and passion that the two entities had for Formula 1. Heuer pioneered the idea of watch brands sponsoring teams and drivers, and one of the early drivers to proudly wear their high quality fake watches was the Swiss driver Jo Siffert.
Siffert was known for wearing an aaa quality replica Tag Heuer Autavia ref. 1163 with the white dial, black sub-dials, and blue accents. The watch featured here is a re-edition that was produced to honor Siffert, who proudly wore his luxury super clone Tag Heuer Autavia UK until the end of his career – one that included two Formula 1 Grand Prix wins, two class wins at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and an overall win at the 24 hours of Daytona. Siffert also helped his friend, actor Steve McQueen, prepare for his role as the lead in 1971’s Le Mans. This included helping him pick out a top copy TAG Heuer Monaco as the watch to wear on his wrist.
Featuring the Caliber 11, with its opposite side crown and 1970s shape, this is a Swiss movement fake Tag Heuer Jo Siffert would have recognized immediately. The rectangle pushers are something new to the re-edition, but they fit the case well and are less likely to get damaged as you track lap times (or simply play with the chronograph while you wait for your coffee order to be ready).
