TAG Heuer Unveils A 50th Anniversary One-Of-A-Kind Monaco Watch

Oct 29, 2019

Category: Style

One of the most iconic watches of all time and Steve McQueen’s timepiece of choice, the TAG Heuer Monaco turned 50 this year and, in celebration, the brand has released a number of special edition watches — each styled to pay homage to a decade of its existence. Now, to cap off the collection in spectacular fashion, they’ve unveiled a final, one-of-a-kind Piece d’Art version that’s headed to auction.

There are a number of things that make this unique watch exceedingly special. For starters, it’s a genuine 1969 year model that has been refurbished and upgraded. The brand even went so far as to disassemble and apply a high-grade finish to each individual part of its vintage Calibre 11 movement before putting it back together. It also boasts an exhibition caseback to put its intricate inner workings on full display. Complete with documentation, a display case, an original steel link band, an original sketch, and more, this fitting tribute to the world’s first automatic chronograph will be sold at Phillips’ Game Changers watch auction on December 10th, 2019.
