TAG Heuer Monaco CAW211B.FC6241 2012$ 5,590
- Product Notes
The Heuer Monaco was unveiled at the Basel fair in 1969 as the world's first waterproof automatic chronograph with a square case. The retail price for this watch was US$ 200 and it was offered in two variations— ref. 1133B with a blue dial and ref. 1133G with a grey dial. One of the main highlights of this watch was the positioning of the crown on the left side of the case. With its large square case (40 mm x 38 mm), bold dial and domed plastic crystal, the Monaco was an instant hit. The Monaco’s ultimate claim to fame came when racing driver and Heuer brand ambassador Jo Siffert, the first racing driver to be sponsored by a watch brand, was seen wearing the watch in a race in 1970. Later on, the watch of course received its consecration on the silver screen when it was strapped on the wrist of the king of cool, Steve McQueen, in the movie Le Mans. Since its launch in 1969, the Monaco has been released in more guises than we can count, but the one category that will always be associated with the watch is racing.
The Ref CAW211B is a grey version of the 40th Anniversary Monaco released in 2009. The watch’s case is finished in a subtle charcoal stainless steel and it is quite similar to the original design from the 1960s. It is powered by Calibre 11, an ETA 2892/2 base with a Dubois Depraz Chronograph module. The movement can be admired from the transparent caseback that gives a peek into the rotor with the traditional Cotes de Geneve finishing as well as the red Heuer shield. The watch is offered with its original set of box and papers and also a two-year warranty from Watchfinder.
