The all-black chronograph were built with a cushion case, pulsometer (for calculating heartbeat), tachymetric scale (to calculate speed like a purpose of time) and red hands and counters adding a sporty touch. The innovative and classy style of the UK Tag Heuer Monza distinguish it, and helped to shape the legend we all know today.
For 2016, the 40th anniversary from the Replica Tag Heuer Monza chronograph, TAG Heuer is unveiling a brand new form of this legendary watch. The reissue, modeled faithfully around the 1976 Heuer Monza, features two key functions of their predecessor: the pulsometer and also the tachymeter, an initial for the organization, since no previous remake has already established both. The famous black cushion case, formerly in steel, has become made from grade 5 titanium, and also the watch’s effective presence is further enhanced having a matt black titanium carbide coating. The case diameter continues to be beefed up from 39 mm to 42 mm, giving today’s see a more masculine and contemporary look. The dial sports the historic HEUER emblem, and also the look is finished with black and white-colored lacquered hour and minute hands, styled such as the original.
Inside, the 2016 form of the Heuer Monza chronograph is driven through the automatic Calibre 17. The caseback is screwed lower, engraved using the Heuer emblem selected in red lacquer, and numbered. The timepiece oozes vintage style, enhanced through the “super racing” style strap entirely-grain calf leather with large perforations, a nod towards the three-branched steering wheels common in racing cars of times.
