The personal watch of choice of the so-called “King of Cool,” the TAG Heuer Monaco was famously worn by Steve McQueen, both on the silver screen and in his day-to-day life. Celebrating its famous ties to the Hollywood actor and motorsport icon, TAG continues to produce a replica version of McQueen’s Monaco, complete with its square 39mm stainless steel case, perforated blue alligator racing strap, and a metallic sunburst blue dial complimented via red central and subdial hands and silver-toned interval markers and hour and minute hands.
Whether it’s a recreation of McQueen’s personal variant or any of the other striking models that comprise TAG’s long-running Monaco lineup, acquiring one of these Swiss-made watches typically comes with a fairly steep price, with the least expensive new Monaco chronograph carrying an MSRP of $5,400. An undercooked alternative to traditional retail avenues is buying through eBay, which constantly boasts a wide selection of new and used TAG Heuer Monacos, as well as a slew of other watches from the prestigious La Chaux-de-Fonds firm. To ensure even the most convincing high-end knockoffs don’t make it onto its site, eBay has hired a team of full-time horological experts to authenticate every single watch that passes through its hands that’s valued at $2,000 or more, completely free of charge.
