The TAG Heuer Monaco watch is a true icon in the world of watchmaking, the same as Steve McQueen's name is in the world of movies. TAG Heuer has united two myths in one and now Steve McQueen's name has become synonymous to the Monaco chronograph watch.
The remarkable story started in 1971 when Formula One racing classic movie 'Le Mans' was released. In the movie, Steve McQueen's character Michael Delaney, driving his Porsche 917 Gulf, wears a TAG Heuer Monaco with a blue face. The movie is an all-time hit among fans of sports cars and auto racing.
'Le Mans' has given birth to TAG Heuer's continuous partnership with the world of motor racing. The Monaco watch has become a world-famous trend-setter - a sleek automatic chronograph with its original aesthetic and powerful design characterized by a distinctive square face and streamed lines.
Inspired by the success of 'Le Mans' and the original Monaco watch, Tag Heuer has featured McQueen's image in its advertizing compaigns since then.
Today, the TAG Heuer Monaco watches are highly demanded not only among adventurous men, but also among fashion-forward ladies. The brand created a few seductive Monaco models exclusively to win female hearts.
As powerful as the original, the Monaco chronograph watch for ladies with its retro-chic design is a harmonious union of tone, material, and texture.
Watches from the TAG Heuer Monaco Lady collection are equipped with the brand's Calibre 6 automatic movement, with a small seconds counter found at 6 o'clock. The lady's watches catch the glance by their slightly downsized and sleeker case profile, if compared to the original.
The TAG Heuer watches have been created in three variations: with a standard dial; with a dial adorned with 13 Top Wesselton diamonds; with a dial sparkling with 13 Top Wesselton and a case embellished with 26 Top Wesselton diamonds.
The lady's watches go on three different straps - cream alligator, black python, or brown python.
