Tag Heuer Monaco Watch

The Tag Heuer Monaco is one the most unique looking watches in the entire Tag Heuer line of fine timepieces. It is hard to mistake this watch for an every day sport watch. The oversized square case shape has rounded side that offset the bold design of this watch. A design that was inspired by one of the most famous race car movies ever made, “Le Mans” starring Steve McQueen. He wore the watch in the movie and guaranteed its fame amongst race car and Steve McQueen fans.

The Monaco is mid sized sports watch measuring 38 mm in diameter. The screw down crown is off set by the two chrono pushers set at sloping angles above and below. The dial on the Monaco is easy to read thanks to the oversized seconds and minutes sub dials set at three and nine o’clock respectively. These subdials are easy to read due to their square design with rounded corners. The Chrono hour sub dial is set at six o’clock. If you want a dial that is even easier to read, then choose the version with the blue dial and strap. This version does not have an hour subdial which makes it even easier to read.
