Heuer Chronograph Monaco with the extraordinary square design became worldwide generally known while being worn by Steve McQueen during the movie from 1970 “le Mans”. The cult chronograph was named after the famous racing circuit in Southern France: Monaco. In honour of this challenging circuit Heuer launched in 1969 a automatic winding chronograph with a former state-of-the-art design. This is one of the most collectible and desirable of all of the Heuer watches made distinctly popular with it’s racing theme and the fact that the original was worn by Steve McQueen. It also happens to be the most desirable of the re-issue Tag Heuer watches.
According to Jack Heuer only 4.500 Monaco (all references – all colors of dial) were produced in the period from 1969 to 1974.
