Tag HEUER MONACO Steve McQueen Calibre 11 Steel Leather CHRONO AUTOMATIC blue
Swisswatch brand TAG Heuer presents Monaco Calibre 11 Chronograph, a fittingtribute to the legendary Heuer Monaco 1969 Chronograph. Launchedsimultaneously in Geneva and New York on 3rd March 1969, the HeuerMonaco was the first square, water-resistant automatic chronographwatch in the history of Swiss watchmaking. Named by Jack Heuerfollowing the Monaco Grand Prix (for which TAG Heuer is still apartner), the watch represented a complete break from the aestheticcodes of traditional watchmaking, with its large square case, metallicblue dial, bright red minute hand, domed plastic crystal and, mostnotably, its crown positioned on the left which, at the time, meantthat the watch did not need winding. Withits track début in 1970, on the wrist of the Swiss driver Jo Siffert(the first racing driver to be sponsored by a watch brand - Heuer), thefollowing year it shared the cinematic limelight with Steve McQueen, who insisted on wearing it during filming for Le Mans in 1971. TheMonaco Calibre 11 Chronograph is a direct descendant of the 1969original.
The 39 mm size, the crown on the left, the legendarypetroleum blue dial with two white counters, the date window at 6o'clock, the diamond-polished horizontal hour indices, the inscribedvintage Heuer logo, the calibre 11 automatic chronograph with date andwater-resistance to 100 metres - all the attributes of the Monaco.
