Baselworld 2016 Live: Tag Heuer Monza Chronograph

Baselworld 2016 Live: Tag Heuer Monza Chronograph
Celebrating 40 years of history, TAG Heuer have reissued and reinvented a classic and timeless piece with the Heuer Monza Chronograph.

Tag Heuer Monza Chronograph

Originally commissioned in 1976 to celebrate Niki Lauda’s first F1 World Championship with Ferrari, the Monza Chronograph reissue features the two key functions of the original that weren’t included on previous reissues – the pulsometer and the tachymeter scale around the bezel.

The famous coussin case is the main feature of the watch, like the original it is in all black with black and white lacquered dials and vintage orange SuperLiminova indicators. The red accents on the watch, such as the seconds dial and pulsometer attest to TAG Heuer’s racing heritage.

The case has been upgraded from its original steel to grade five titanium, making the watch a lot lighter than any previous models and provides higher shock resistance. The piece is powered by TAG’s calibre 17 automatic movement and features two chronographs. The diameter has been increased from 39mm to a larger 42mm to account for modern trends and taste.

With the original Monza Chronograph being a highly sought after timepiece by collectors and loyal followers, the reissue is sure to provide yet another milestone in the company’s rich history and heritage.
