TAG HEUER – Monaco Chronographe Calibre 11

Heuer unveiled a chronograph with an unusual square watertight case in 1969 named Monaco in tribute to the Grand Prix. The iconic Monaco chronograph has since become a signature in TAG Heuer’s product range, comes in a variety of designs (mainly in terms of functions and dial colour), and is back to end the year on a high with a new twist on the original model. Its 39x39mm steel case houses the 11 calibre, a self-winding movement providing a 40-hour power reserve, time, date and chronograph functions. The petrol blue dial features the signature edgy luminescent hands whilst the minute track glows red and white. The vibrant hue appears on both hands and the central seconds hand whilst the small seconds (at 3), chronograph minutes counter (at 9) and date display (at 6) are adorned in black and white. Price: 5,200 CHF. Sharmila Bertin
