Tag Heuer Monaco Calibre 12 Chronograph 39mm Automobile Club De Monaco Black Edition

Swiss watchmaking legend TAG HEUER continues its winning partnership with Automobile Club de Monaco (ACM), the governing body of the most glamorous race in motor racing. In 2011, TAG Heuer and the Automobile Club de Monaco signed a historic agreement making the Swiss brand the ACM’s Official Watch and Chronograph and Eyewear Partner of its most glamorous event: the Grand Prix of Monaco. In 2013, the brand celebrates its legacy by unveiling the Monaco Calibre 12 ACM.

The iconic square-shaped case first seen on Steve McQueen’s wrist in Le Mans is here revamped in F1-grade black titanium carbide, with white luminescent markers on the facetted minute and hour hands. The logo of TAG Heuer Monaco partner ACM adorns the smoked sapphire crystal caseback, while the all-black dial is highlighted by MONACO lettering above the TAG Heuer logo at 12 and a flash of orange on the tip of the chronograph second hand. The black leather strap is perforated, like a race car steering wheel cover, and lined with orange. The case is polished and fine-brushed, as are the steel pushbutton. The first black MONACO since 1974.
