TAG Heuer Monaco CAW211B.FC6241
A square, angular, shaped wristwatch like the Monaco had never been seen prior to its introduction in 1969. The chronograph was water-resistant (a first for a square watch) and the movement powering the timepiece was the revolutionary new self-winding Calibre 11. The Monaco’s ultimate claim to fame came when racing driver and Heuer brand ambassador Jo Siffert, the first racing driver to be sponsored by a watch brand, was seen wearing the watch in a race in 1970. Later on, the watch of course received its consecration on the silver screen when it was strapped on the wrist of the king of cool, Steve McQueen, in the movie Le Mans.
A re-edition of the grey 1133G Heuer Monaco, the present example is from 2011.
The Ref CAW211B is a grey version of the 40th Anniversary Monaco released in 2009. The watch’s case is finished in a subtle charcoal stainless steel and it is quite similar to the original design from the 1960s. It is powered by Calibre 11, an ETA 2892/2 base with a Dubois Depraz Chronograph module. The movement can be admired from the transparent casebook that gives a peek into the rotor with the traditional Cotes de Geneve finishing as well as the red Heuer shield.
The watch is offered with its original box and a two-year warranty from Watchfinder.
