The tag heuer Monaco replica comes in the 44mm wide case, which is the only case size available for this dial style. The other dial style is available in either a 44mm wide or 42mm wide case. Also note that this dial style is only available with the (quite lovely) alligator strap (in two shades of brown, or black). The tag heuer Aquaracer replica on the bracelet isn't that bad though - coming from someone who loves watches on bracelets.
Of course, this "more" retro version of the Formula 1 arguably has more character. The distinct vintage looks of this model cannot be confused for anything else. The other dial can actually be confused with something more modern-looking. Indeed, even some novice employees at Tag Heuer thought it was quite modern looking when the new http://www.syrauto.com/tag-heuer-formula-1-replica-uk.html models debuted in 2011. If you go retro, go full retro, and opt for a dial like this in my opinion.
The classic-style dials are matched to classic-looking cases, only enlarged for today's tastes. The two size options are both intended for men, and I think work to satisfy most of the target demographic. The all-polished steel cases are nicely made and comfortable with their curved lugs. However, the cases are thick, ranging from over 14mm to 16.5mm thick in this model. That is a thick watch, but it is intended to look large. Part of that has to do with the chronograph movements and domed sapphire crystal.
It is easy to like the retro-styled plunger chronograph pushers and wheel style crown that is wide and relatively flat. It is the type of crown you like to grasp and operate. The case is also water resistant to 50 meters. Tag Heuer didn't go with a case-fitted strap. It is true that doing so would go against the vintage theme, but I bet this watch would look great with a fitted strap that results in no gap between the case and the strap.
Through the rear of the watch, you have a view of the mechanical movement through a sapphire crystal exhibition case back window. Most Formula 1 models have three register chronographs and use the Swiss ETA Valjoux 7753 automatic movement. These models with two chronograph registers use a different, arguably more interesting movement. Inside this model is a Swiss La Loux-Perret caliber 8147-2 automatic. It is very nicely decorated (with blued screws, perlage, and Cotes de Geneve stripes) and while the chronograph is designed to only measure 30 minutes, it does have a flyback complication. The movement further has 42 hours of power reserve (pretty much the same as the 7753).
