Tag Heuer Monaco

Lot No.: 309

Sold for (£): 1,740

In 1969, Heuer shook up the watchmaking tradition by creating the first-ever square, water-resistant case. Driven by the celebrated chronomatic calibre 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 'Le Mans', the famous car racing film and on the wrist of this major star, it soon became an icon. 

This example has a rare white dial with three sub dials, chrome hands and hour batons. The case is the traditional size and is made in stainless steel with a combination of polished and satin finish. The strap is original TAG Heuer  leather,  and has a stainless steel deployant Tag Heuer buckle. The movement is an ETA 2894, which is an automatic chronograph. This is a lovely looking Monaco in fine condition.
