TAG Heuer Monaco 1969 Original Re-Edition Chronograph for Monacos 40th Anniversary

Feb 23, 2009
To mark the 40th anniversary of its iconic Monaco watch, TAG Heuer has created a new limited edition Monaco Chronograph watch. The timepiece will be available in a limited number of just 1,000 pieces. It is a highly anticipated novelty to be unveiled at forthcoming Baselworld 2009.

The original Monaco watch was introduced in 1969. As all TAG Heuer fans are aware, the remarkable fact about the watch is that it became the watch-choice of Steve McQueen for the legendary movie "Le Mans," really famous among fans of cool race cars and motor racing.

In "Le Mans," Steve McQueen's character Michael Delaney wears a blue-faced Monaco watch, immediately distinguished by the square shape of its case and streamed lines. Nowadays, Monaco watches enjoy increasing popularity among adventurous men passionate about motor racing.

The TAG Heuer Monaco 1969 Original Re-Edition Chronograph watch is clearly inspired by the original Monaco. The case of the watch is crafted from polished stainless steel. The winding crown is featured at 9 o'clock, just opposite the chronograph push-pieces at 2 and 4 o'clock. The stainless steel case-back of the watch reveals the signature of Jack Heuer.

The blue dial is highlighted by red accents on the hour and minute hands, a distinctively red chronograph hand and horizontal diamond-tipped hour markers. The small seconds counter and the 30-minute counter are harmoniously positioned at 3 and 9 oclock, while the hand-applied date window in polished steel is found at 6 oclock.

The new Monaco Chronograph accommodates the legendary Calibre 11 movement, the first automatic chronograph movement with micro-rotor. The movement guarantees remarkable precision.

The TAG Heuer Monaco 1969 Original Re-Edition Chronograph watch is coupled with a stylish perforated leather strap fitted with a steel buckle.
