Some of the more collectible vintage Heuers are actually the so-called pilots’ version of the Carrera in recent years. This was an early 1970s automatic chronograph manufactured in solid gold, with the familiar C-shaped case. For sheer audacity – these replica watches were produced in solid gold and came on gold mesh bands – it’s difficult to imagine of any factual competition in the world of these fake Heuer watches. tag heuer tag-079077_03
Mario Andretti has such a kind of item as we saw on a recent episode of Talking Watches. It is the same with his former workmate, the Swedish driver Ronnie Peterson. Nowadays, we’re talking about a very special piece that is a re-edition of the fake Carrera that the “SuperSwede” received from Jack Heuer upon winning the Jo Siffert Prix Rouge et Blanc Award (sponsored by Marlboro, for the “underdog” drive of the day) at the 1972 German Grand Prix. The original watch, which sold for $230,000 at Sotheby’s in 2016 and is now in the replica TAG Heuer Museum, came engraved with words “SUCCESS RONNIE PETERSON FROM JACK W. HEUER.” In conclusion, fewer than 500 of the fake models in yellow gold are regarded to have been made, and several of them ended up on the wrists of well-known drivers of the day. Last November’s Heuer Parade saw two of these watches come up for sale – Lots 15 and 39 – which went for CHF 22,500 and CHF 35,000, respectively.
To commemorate Peterson’s career and benefit the Ronnie Peterson Foundation, TAG Heuer has made a single gold replica of his original 1158. The gold case and Milanese bracelet are on point re-editions, as is the appearance of the dial. But where the original 1158 came with the in-house Caliber 12 movement, an upgraded version of the Caliber 11, the new watch comes with what the replica TAG Heuer today calls a Caliber 11, which is a Sellita base caliber outfitted with a chronograph module from Dubois-Dépraz.
Ronnie Peterson raced in Formula One from 1970 to 1978 for three teams. Over the course of his Formula One career, which was tragically cut short – he died in 1978, at 34, as a result of injuries sustained in a crash at Monza – Peterson won 10 Grands Prix and reached the podium 26 times.
The auction, titled Les Grandes Marques à Monaco, breaks out May 11 in Monte Carlo, and is focused on all things racing. This particular replica TAG Heuer is lot 111 (Yes, the auction is May 11, the movement is caliber 11, and the lot is 111) and has been listed with a very cheap and affordable price.

TAG Heuer Autavia is one of the largest new watch releases of the year for vintage fans. The result of the Autavia Cup competition, which asked fans to vote on their favorite vintage model for TAG Heuer to recreate, the watch takes the brash ’60s racing style of the original and makes it the basis of a thoroughly contemporary watch. We showed you the prototype last year and gave you the full specs of the final model when it debuted officially at Baselworld. But that’s just the beginning of the story.
Jeff Stein – founder of OnTheDash, and Talking replica Watches veteran – is the authority on all things vintage Heuer. So, obviously, when I heard he’d taken delivery of his 2017 Autavia, I knew we needed to talk. Luckily, Jeff is a generous man and offered to do an on-the-record interview after spending some serious wrist-time with his new watch.
We talked about how Jeff first heard about the new Autavia, his involvement in the process, and why, even as a hardcore Heuer guy, he was still able to find some surprises in the new watch.
My introduction to the watch was in November 2015. I was in New York for the replica TAG Heuer’s releasing of the Connected watch, and was just sort of hanging out with the guys from TAG Heuer Replica. I had known many of them for a while as pen pals and from swapping emails and such. This was the first time that I had met the social and electronic media guys, and they introduced me to Jean-Claude Biver, and we began talking about the recent surge in interest in the vintage Autavias. TAG Heuer Replica
Of course, he’d had the thought before, but I suggested to him that this would be the perfect time to do a reissue of the Autavia. Therefore, we started looking at my website and searching for the various versions, and talking about which ones collectors were chasing, which ones had the value in the market, etc. He basically looked at me and said, “Well, you guys, the collecting community, tell me which one you want and you’ll have it in early 2017.”
He said there were two conditions. It had to be a traditional round case, the style of the 1960s, and it had to be an acceptable modern size. He threw out 42 millimeters, which is exactly what it turned out to be.

TAG Heuer replicaIn terms of documentary, people may think it is educated but boring. However, in 2015, there is a documentary is about to release– Nuit de la Glisse. It could be counted as. The reason why is can be so successful would be the latest installment of the cult documentary series.
The movie, which opens in Paris on November 27, showcases the world’s best free ride skiers, snowboarders, wingsuiters, surfers and kite surfers – people who pull off feats so epic that the superlative ‘extreme’ hardly covers it. These athletes are dwarfed by the scale and attractiveness of the planet they live in – the world which pushes them to their limits again and again.
Translating as ‘Night Skiing’, since it began in 1978 the series has evolved to cover so much more, as director Thierry Donard travels the world chasing the tallest peaks, the largest waves and the most frightening drops. The men and women, who ski off cliffs, jump out of planes onto mountaintops and surf waves that obscure the horizon know a thing or two about pressure, and that a few seconds can make a difference between life and death. Furthermore, supported by TAG Heuer replica watches, with the theme ‘Don’t Crack Under Pressure’, Donard’s latest film picks up on their disruptive, avant-garde approach to life.
With the notable exception of Fossil, these are all tech brands, so it will be intriguing to see TAG Heuer’s luxury take on the technology.
Either way, TAG Heuer intends the replica watch to be upgradeable, thus you won’t need to replace it in six months when the tech becomes obsolete.
