As one of the most iconic TAG timepieces of all time, the Monaco is a name needing no introduction. From its 1969 debut coinciding with the famed Monaco Grand Prix to its appearance on Steve McQueen’s wrist during the Le Mans film, this watch boasts a history well-steeped in auto culture. Having discontinued the Monaco in the mid-70s, TAG Heuer eventually reissued it later in 1998. Now for 2020, the Monaco gets a couple of updates like never before.
One of the biggest changes to the Monaco comes in the form of an in-house movement. For though this watch sports the classic styling of the Monaco line, under the hood it’s been updated with a state-of-the-art Calibre Heuer 02 automatic movement. Visible through the sapphire case back, it features an 80-hour power reserve good for days of wear. But that’s not all — TAG is also treating the Monaco to an all-new metal-link bracelet. Inspired by classic styling but with a modern finish, the bracelet provides for an elegant update. Top it off with an elegant dark dial and a red-lacquered central hand, and the updated Monaco makes for a worthy addition to the lineup. Available now for $6,750.
