Taking one of our favorite lines from Tag Heuer, the Monaco Twenty Four Calibre 36 Chronograph strikes a perfect balance of vintage inspiration and modern-day engineering. The highly technical piece is powered by Tag Heuer’s 36 Calibre movement which beats at an incredible 36,000 vibrations per hour (100x faster than a human heart), is coated with black titanium carbide, and shock-protected by a dynamic absorption system that utilizes four shock-absorbing arms made of aircraft grade polymers, literally suspending the movement within the 40.5mm case. The blue and orange stripes are inspired by the Gulf Porsche 917K driven by Steve McQueen in the movie “Le Mans”. An exhibition back and black alligator strap with orange stitching round out this stunner.
