TAG Heuer ‘Steve McQueen’ Monaco watch returns

To celebrate what would have been Steve McQueen’s 75th birthday, TAG Heuer has reissued one of the most famous and iconic watches in the world – the TAG Heuer Monaco – as a special limited edition.

The Monaco was the world’s first square-cased chronograph, designed to match McQueen’s suit in the movie Le Mans, which itself was a replica of the first driver sponsored by TAG Heuer  – Jo Siffert. Being on Steve McQueen’s wrist created the legend, but technically, it’s remembered for being the first watch with a microrotor for automatic rewinding – the revolutionary “Chronomatic Calibre 11.”

The new version differs slightly in looks, featuring a white (instead of blue) dial, along with red, white and blue bands to match the McQueen/Siffert suit, blue alligator bracelet and push button buckle – but still packing the class of the original. The limited edition is 4,000 and the price is around £2,400. Well, did you expect it to be anything less?
