In 1969, Heuer shook up the watchmaking tradition by creating the first-ever square, water-resistant case. Driven by the celebrated chronomatic Caliber 11, the Monaco was also the world's first square automatic chronograph. It was only one year old when Steve McQueen chose to wear it in the film 'Le Mans' and on the wrist of this major star it soon became an icon.

c.2008 Tag Heuer Monaco 'Steve McQueen' Complete with Box and Paperwork. The 38mm stainless steel square case is satin and polished all in fine condition. The movement is an automatic 2-register chronograph with date function made by ETA. The dial is the popular Blue and has the traditional silver 2 sub-dials with chrome hour batons and red and chrome hands. The leather strap is black with red stitching which is attached to a stainless steel deployment buckle signed Tag Heuer. This is the popular blue coloured Monaco, presented with its box and paperwork and in stunning condition.
