The TAG Heuer watches are almost always round, which is why the Monaco Automatic collection have been so popular, offering a unique square shape that has graced the wrists of men the world over since the 1970 Le Mans film where Steve McQueen sported the very first Monaco design watch.
The square design is a quiet sophistication with a black dial that offers a two-tone hour and minute hand as well as seconds captured in its own separate window that has been nickel-plated. The TAG Heuer logo as well as the Monaco name is both featured on the dial as well as silver lines taking the place of numerals on the watch to ensure that the time can be told without overcomplicating the design.
The watch is water resistant up to 50 meters. In addition, the case of the watch is made from sapphire crystal to avoid scratches on the surface, allowing the watch to be worn every day in even the toughest of conditions. The wristband can be found in leather (alligator) or a black rubber to add a sportier element to the luxury timepiece.
There is a fluted design on the crown, which makes it easier than ever to make adjustments to the time on the watch. The entire case is made of stainless steel, adding a layer of elegance to the watch that can be casual enough for everyday wear and also dressy enough to be worn on formal occasions as well.
The automatic movement ensures that the time is always accurate on this gorgeous piece. TAG Heuer watches don’t always have to be round and in the case of the Monaco Automatic watches, square has never looked so exquisite.
