Tag Heuer Monaco Chronograph 39 mm Calibre Heuer 02 Automatic (with in-house calibre and redesigned bracelets)

TAG Heuer presents three new Monaco models, continuing the new chapter in the collection’s history that began in 2019 – a year in which the brand celebrated the iconic timepiece’s 50th anniversary with special-edition releases.

These new, impressive 2020 models feature a powerful in-house manufacture movement at their heart, the Calibre Heuer 02, and a stunning, statement design. All three drawing inspiration from the models of the 1970s, and two are presented on a modernised metallic bracelet, recreated especially for them.

The highlight of these three newcomers is the model with a bold black dial with a sunray-brushed appearance. Its counterpart features a lustrous blue sunray-brushed dial with a red, white and blue colour scheme reminiscent of the original Monaco timepieces of 1969.

Both models are presented on a stainless-steel bracelet and feature striking square counters at 3 and 9 o’clock and a red central chronograph seconds hand.

The model with the black dial is also available with a black leather strap. Visible behind the watch’s sapphire crystal case-back, the powerful Calibre Heuer 02 offers an impressive power reserve of 80 hours.

The dotted hour-markers and rhodium plated hour and minute hands are treated with white Super-LumiNova® for ensuring clear dial visibility in night.

A major design feature of these Monaco novelties is the stainless-steel bracelet. It has been nearly two decades since a new Monaco was presented on a metal bracelet. This particular example draws on the H-shaped bracelet that was used for Monaco watches in the early 1970s.

The designers wanted to give the 2020 models a new flair and found their inspiration among the archive pieces at the TAG Heuer Museum in La Chaux-de-Fonds. The original steel bracelet has been redesigned to meet today’s standards and improve comfort for the wearer.

True to its original design, the bracelet is wider at the lugs in order to carry the weight of the watch head. It tapers where it wraps around the wrist for improved comfort. The horizontal bars are connected with smaller horizontal links. Its butterfly clasp is engraved with the TAG Heuer shield – another detail that symbolises the Monaco’s place in TAG Heuer’s core collection, and not just as a heritage piece.

These new outstanding TAG Heuer Monaco models can be paired with custom straps to match the style of the wearer. For example, the watch strap specialist StrapsCo recommends a perforated black leather strap with red-stitching for a sportier appearance. This extremely durable strap from StrapsCo also provides a comfortable wearing experience. The eye-catching red-stitches over the strap perfectly complement the three red hands of the Monaco watch dial. StrapsCo also offers an all-black colored, perforated leather strap for a restrained look.

Made from genuine leather, these perforated leather straps recommended for TAG Heuer Monaco models feature a width of 22 mm (18 mm at clasp-end). The strap length is 195mm (110/85) and thickness is 5 mm -2 mm. With these dimensions, the strap perfectly integrates with the silhouette of the new Monaco Chronograph 39 mm watch. Customers can choose these straps with or without clasp. The stainless steel deployment clasps are available with polished silver, brushed silver, matte-black, yellow-gold and rose-gold finishes.
