Tag Heuer loves to recreate its established wristwear, going so far as to revitalize colorways, styles, and silhouettes from throughout its history. Now, for the brand’s 50th Anniversary, they’ve decided to reference the past five decades of iconic watchmaking with five different examples — each focusing on their own era. The 90s-inspired Monaco Calibre 11 is one such variant.
The Monaco Calibre 11 harkens back to the watchmaker’s most prolific examples from 1989-1999, boasting a grey-grained, rhodium-plated dial, grey subdials, and stylish red accents. A blue calfskin strap adorned in subtle red stitching serves to tie everything together. To protect the watch’s iconic Calibre 11 movement, a decorative case constructed with fine-brushed/polished steel has been implemented. On the rear, you’ll find an inscription referencing the watch’s limited-edition run, a “Monaco Heuer” logo, and words annotating the timepiece’s prestigious lineage as a “1989-1999 Special Edition” variant. Only 169 examples are slated for production. The Monaco Calibre 11 Automatic Chronograph is available now for $6,550.
