Launched in 1969, Tag Heuer’s Monaco wristwatch was innovative from the outset, and has continued pushing the boundaries of possibility in watchmaking ever since - the original model was the world’s first square automatic chronograph,
as well as being the first watch to sport a square water-resistant case, while the later Monaco V4 was the first watch of its kind, driver by patented belt drives and ball bearings. This classic wristwatch has been one of the most popular on the market ever since it was spotted on the wrist of Steve McQueen in the racing movie Le Mans – in fact, the watch worn in the 1971 film was sold for almost $800,000 at auction thanks to its unique blend of style and substance. The Monaco from Tag Heuer’s fantastic reputation stems from its reliability, resilience and accuracy, while the famous model’s distinctive appearance has helped it to achieve iconic status. This fabulous timepiece’s square case sets it apart from other watches in the Tag Heuer collection, and because the Monaco prides itself on its versatility, it’s available in a range of designs to suit your personality – for the traditionalists, the black dial look set into a stainless steel case with a leather strap has a classic elegance, while the marine blue dial look is perfect for anyone looking to stand out from the crowd. Whatever you’re looking for, if you require a watch which looks good and performs admirably, the Monaco is one to look out for.
