This iconic Tag Heuer watch has a lot of history behind it including two world firsts: the first water-resistant timepiece with a square case and the first automatic chronograph. This watch is for a gentleman who likes sophistication and timeless Swiss artistry.
A special edition Tag Heuer Monaco 'Gulf' this watch has a 39mm brushed and polished square case and houses one of the most influential Swiss Automatic movements of all time. This movement was created by, Tag Heuer, Breitling and Swiss watch giant Dubois Depraz. It was the first ever automatic movement for chronographs.
The watch features a navy dial with two chronograph counters, controlled by the two push buttons on the opposite side of the case to the crown, a tradition amongst Monaco’s. Along with a date window at six o'clock this watch is perfect for everyday life. The dial is complete with the famous Gulf Oil colours famed with the likes of the Ford GT40 part of the legendary John Wyer Team .
Much of TAG Heuer’s history of the Monaco watch is intertwined with this piece. The Monaco was famously worn by Steve McQueen in the film ‘Le Mans’ and both Steve McQueen’s race suit and the Porsche 917 was blazoned with the Gulf Oil logos and colours.
Complementing the watch head perfectly is a black perforated black leather calfskin strap with a stainless-steel deployment clasp to ensure comfort for the wearer and maximum safety whilst on your wrist.
