WatchPro Sports Watches of the Year, Highly Commended: TAG Heuer

TAG heuer Monaco

TAG Heuer celebrated the 50th anniversary of its iconic Monaco collection this year in serious style.

The watch with the distinctive square case first rose to fame on the wrist of the ‘King of Cool’ himself, Steve McQueen, and has since become an enduring favourite with watch lovers and fashionistas alike.

This year, in addition to unveiling a slew of limited-edition models, TAG Heuer introduces its integrated chronograph movement with column wheel and vertical clutch to its modern blue dial Monaco, a pillar of the popular collection.

Visually, this new watch looks almost identical to its predecessor the Monaco Calibre 12.

And it’s a good thing too because the 39mm x 39mm square case with the satin-brushed bezel and the blue sunray brushed dial are beloved by watch aficionados everywhere.

Look closely though and you will notice the subtle addition of third sub-dial just above six o’clock that displays the running seconds.

As a result, a chronograph hour counter is introduced for the first time on this model. Useful for timing longer events.
