Monaco (TAG Heuer)

TAG Heuer reintroduced the Monaco in 1997 as part of its re-edition collection. The CS2110 was a huge success and inspired TAG Heuer to make the Monaco part of the mainstream TAG Heuer range, rather than just as a Heuer retro novelty. The Monaco range expanded over the years to include a smaller, more modern case design, as well as inspiring bold new watches such as the Monaco V4.

Going forward the Monaco collection will be reduced to a single model, the McQueen inspired blue-dial with the white registers and the famous Calibre 11 movement.

But for those… Read More

First Look: Heuer Monaco Calibre 11 “McQueen” Chronograph

Contrary to popular opinion, TAG Heuer’s revived Monaco CS2110 in 1997 was not a true re-edition. Yes, it was the first time since the mid-1970s that the square Monaco was part of the TAG Heuer range, but rather than reproducing a facsimile of a specific historic Monaco model, TAG Heuer instead chose to develop a new dial design for the… Read More

TAG Heuer Monaco Calibre 6 Full Black

You might be tempted to dismiss the new TAG Heuer Monaco Calibre 6 Full Black as simply being a new variation on a watch that is getting close to its 10th birthday. Nothing exciting there.

2014 Monaco Grand Prix Photo Diary

We don’t usually cover events here at Calibre 11, but it’s worth making an exception to that rule, because the Monaco Grand Prix is an event absolutely worth a few photos.

Inside TAG Heuer’s Haute Horlogerie Workshop

Only a few years ago, the concept of a haute horlogerie (a French term that in essence means “high-end watchmaking”) TAG Heuer watch was a foreign one. It was only under the leadership of Jean-Christophe Babin in the mid-2000s that the company began to reactivate watchmaking skills that had long been dormant. Starting with the Monaco V4, TAG Heuer has set… Read More
