Now offered on a distinctive steel bracelet, the show-stopping TAG Heuer Monaco has had a few visual tweaks and functional updates in its half-century history, but now it features a technological first – it’s powered by an in-house automatic manufacture movement for the first time ever. Like the Formula 1 motor race and the city it's named after, the Monaco Men's Watch by TAG Heuer is the world’s first automatic chronograph which became legendary after Steve McQueen sported it in the classic 1970 Hollywood racing film “Le Mans.” It's the ultimate watch for those living life in the fast lane. Starting with its instantly recognisable square, 39mm stainless steel case; the fine-brushed and highly polished design features a stunning blue sunray dial, adorned by rhodium-plated indexes and luminescent hour and minute hands, with a red central second hand adding a touch of vibrancy. Updated silver-opaline chronograph counters sit at 3 and 9 o’clock and a new permanent second indicator can be seen above the date at 6 o’clock, keeping time for ¼ second, 30 minutes and 12 hours. The iconic TAG Heuer Monaco branding completes the dial and it’s protected by a sapphire crystal glass cover and a transparent case back that allows you to see the intricate craftsmanship within. This edition retains the styling of the original watch; the crown features the brand’s embossed logo and it’s offset by two block pushers, so you can start, stop and reset the chronograph function without interfering with the watch. The blue dial is complemented by a new brushed and polished H-link steel bracelet which is ultra-strong and durable, and it fastens securely to the wrist with a folding clasp. Powering this TAG Heuer is the new Heuer 02; an automatic in-house movement developed and manufactured in Switzerland, with an impressive 80 hours of power reserve and a 100 m water resistance. Complete with a TAG Heuer 2-year international warranty, it’s presented in stunning branded packaging which is ideal for gifting or storing. A design classic beloved by all watch connoisseurs, the instantly recognizable Monaco is cooler and more cutting-edge than ever before, a must-have timepiece.
