Basel news: TAG Heuer Monaco 40th anniversary

| By Frank Geelen | 2 min read |

Dear readers,

The past week i’ve been busy upgrading the software and design of . Although the design changes are not complete yet, I hope you like the new looks of monochrome. Within a few days i’ll start posting about watches again. It’s an exiting time in this month before the start of Baselworld. Brands like Glashütte Original, TAG Heuer, Omega and many, many more are already pre-releasing some of their new creations.

Here are already two new releases from TAG Heuer so exiting that i have to share them. The Monaco 40th anniversary 1969 re-edition is one that i think it totally exiting. The looks are so close to the original Monaco which became famous because Steve McQueen wore one in the movie Le Mans. This re-edition has, like the original, the crown at the left side of the case. The caliber 11 movement is the same as TAG Heuer used in the Autavia re-issue that was released a few years ago. On the dial you’ll see the old name Heuer! If you want one, be fast because it’s limited to only 1,000 pieces!

TAG Heuer will also release another new Monaco to celebrate the 40th anniversary of this iconic watch. The Monaco Classic Chronograph has a caliber 12 automatic chronograph and is available with the black dial shown here and a blue dial with white sub dials. The case is a square 39mm case with a see through case back and is fitted with a sapphire crystal with double sided anti reflection coating to ensure maximum readability.
