TAG Heuer celebrates 40th anniversary of the legendary Monza Chronograph by creating a beautiful reissue, the ultimate recreation of this iconic watch.
In 1976, Jack Heuer, the great grandson of the brand's founder, designed a chronograph to celebrate NikiLauda's first world championship title with FERRARI. The Swiss watch company was then Official Timekeeper for Scuderia (from 1971 to 1979), and it was the first time that MONZA had appeared on the dial of a watch.
At that time, the watch was markedly different, yet very stylish. Its coussin case was inspired by a 1925 model. An all black chronograph equipped with a pulsometer(to measure the heart rate) and a tachymeter scale (which converts time into speed), red hands and counters to reflect its racing heritage, the new design ushered in a brand new era in the history of this model.
Of course, the famous original coussin case is the centrepiece, and is all black, just like the historic model, with black and white lacquered hour and minute hands as on the original. The same applies to the indices in vintage orange SuperLuminova™. Likewise, the historic HEUER logo on the dial, which attests to the model's place in the manufacture's historic collection.
The diameter has also been increased (from 39 mm on the original models to 42 mm, for a more modern, masculine look). It is equipped with a "super racing" strap in full-grain black calfskin with top-stitching, which evokes the design of the three-spoke steering wheel on the racing cars of the time.
Inside, the 17 automatic calibre, a chronograph with its two chronograph counters at 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock – perfectly spaced for a beautifully harmonious dial. The screw-on back is numbered and features the historic HEUER logo engraved with red lacquer finish.
