Re-Edition of 1969 with the Monaco Calibre 11 from TAG Heuer

As part of its presence at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, TAG Heuer rolled out its latest iteration of its iconic Monaco chronograph. The watch was made famous when it was worn by Steve McQueen in the filming of the moving Le Mans. This watch directly harkens that original, down to the watch company’s logo seen here simply as ‘Heuer’.

As with most Monaco variations, this Calibre 11 chronograph features a 39mm face, a brushed polished steel casing, and often-seen black calfskin leather strap. Its dial is blue, following in that nod to the 1969 original.
