This is the Tag Heuer Monaco Calibre 12 Automatic Chronograph, model number: CAW2111.FC6183. The presentation box comes in two parts. The first is the outer box with a drop-down front containing the instruction booklet and guarantee card neatly stored in the space beneath the main box. The second is a sturdy feeling box that contains the watch with a ‘leather’ touch finish. The Tag Heuer logo is embossed on the outside and appears prominently on the inside of the lid.

But if we are honest, the reason that most people are interested in this watch is because it is a remake of the iconic Heuer Monaco worn by Steve McQueen in the 1970’s movie: ‘Le Mans’.

The new Tag Heuer Monaco is almost identical to the original, with subtle differences to the minute and hour hands, hour markers and the crown has been moved from the left to the right of the case. They have also refined the case shape a little to make it a little narrower.

The blue, square face and white matching chronograph dials are instantly recognisable. The straight lines are distinctly masculine and even the scratch-resistant sapphire crystal the protects the face stand up proudly from the case without a single curve in sight. On the side of the watch, the pushbuttons are rectangular, and the crown features the Tag Heuer shield.

This watch will stand up to the knocks, scuffs and drops of everyday life thanks to rigorous shock testing. It is also water resistant to 100m meaning that you don’t have to remove it if you fancy a dip in the Mediterranean Sea.

It is an automatic TAG Heuer Calibre 12 movement, with a power reserve of about 40 hours and of course longer if you move around more than just typing emails all day.

The strap made from alligator leather and has a subtle blue colour that complements the watch face.

On the back of the watch has a tapered edge to the square case and a circular Sapphire Crystal case back revealing the inner movement. Case diameter is 39 mm although, on the wrist, it looks like a much larger watch.

This watch has an iconic look and will have massive nostalgic value to fans of the late Steve McQueen. It isn’t one that people purchase to please others, it is a personal statement of taste. If you like this watch, you probably already know that you will own it one day.
