TAG Heuer announced the release of the Monaco timepiece, featuring some updates for the iconic watch that are contemporary while also drawing on the past. The Monaco is more of a cult favorite than, say, the Carrera, and it tends to be a tougher sell with its square case. However, among watch and racing enthusiasts, it has a solid following. One of the noteworthy new features is the resurrection of the metal bracelet that was last seen on the Monaco two decades ago. TAG Heuer added a stainless steel bracelet with H-shaped links to the latest Monaco which was inspired by archival designs from the 1970s.
The stainless steel bracelet is available with either an all-black dial and a red, white, or blue dial. Both get a sunray-brushed treatment, square counters at the 3 and 9 o’clock, and a red central chronograph seconds hand. Alternatively, the black dial is also available with a black alligator leather strap. The latest TAG Heuer Monaco includes beveled and domed sapphire crystal, a sapphire case back, glow-in-the-dark rhodium plated indexes and hands, and 100 meters of water resistance.
