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.

Up Close- TAG Heuer Monaco Sixty-Nine

The TAG Heuer Monaco Sixty-Nine was first shown as a concept watch at the 2003 Baselworld Show, before moving into a production model in 2004.

In Depth Review- 2015 TAG Heuer Monaco Calibre 12 Boutique Edition

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
