TAG Heuer’s Classic Monaco Watch Goes Modern In Its First Titanium Case

May 24, 2021

Category: Style

TAG Heuer’s history in motorsports is a long and illustrious one, with the Carrera, Autavia, and Monaco all ranking among the most iconic racing chronographs ever made. And while the Heuers of the ‘60s and ‘70s will always remain classics, today’s iteration of the brand is still looking for ways to innovate, as seen in the first-ever titanium TAG Heuer Monaco.

The new titanium Monaco takes Steve McQueen’s famed Le Mans watch and gives it a 21st-century makeover. For the first time, the traditionally stainless steel watch is now cased in Grade 2 titanium with a Grade 5 titanium caseback. The lightweight case is sandblasted all over for a cool matte finish and is sold on a black alligator leather strap with contrasting white stitching. The dial is in a silver panda layout with a bright red seconds chronograph seconds hand complementing the red stripe at the 12 o’clock marker. Powering the watch is the brand’s in-house Calibre 11 automatic chronograph movement, which is nicely decorated and visible through the display caseback. The Monaco Titanium ref. CAW218B.FC6496 is available now from TAG Heuer for $7,900.

Purchase: $7,900
