With a Calibre 12 automatic chronograph, this watch by Tag Heuer from the Monaco series is unlike any other. It is a tribute to movie star Steve McQueen, which is not surprising considering both McQueen and Heuer are veritable icons in their respective fields.
The Monaco series was originally launched in 1969 in honour of the Monaco Grand Prix, and was worn by the famous actor two years later in the movie Le Mans. It soon became Steve McQueen’s legendary watch.
A blue sapphire crystal case back showcases the Calibre 12 movement in action, while its crocodile strap adds the final touch on a true masterpiece that is original yet conservative and classic.
