TAG Heuer Monaco Titan Special Edition

Arguably the most iconic watch from Tag Heuer is the Monaco, and now it has been revitalized with a new sandblasted titanium look. When it comes to square case watches the Monaco line of watches from Tag Heuer will always be brought up alongside Cartier and Rado. While Cartier has definitely dominated the more elegant side of square watches, when it comes to a sportier variant the Monaco is the easy choice among the rest.

With its iconic shape it comes in a case size of 39mm made entirely out of titanium as well as the bezel. The titanium as described by Tag Heuer is cased by Titanium Grade 2, while the dial has a panda dial, with the chronograph being in black while the rest of the dial is in silver. There are highlights of red which can be seen on the second hand as well as the 12 hour indicator. The watch also has a lume on the hour indicators as well as the hour and minute hands. The watch itself is water resistant to 100m which should be a standard for any watch claiming to be a sport watch. It comes with a black alligator leather strap with white stitching on the sides and comes with a titanium clasp further continuing the theme of being made out of titanium. There is an exhibition caseback that shows the legendary Calibre 11 automatic movement.

The Calibre 11 movement starts at the end of 1965, where Gerald Dubois, Hans Kocher, Jack Heuer and Willy Breitling all came together to figure out and support the best way to get this movement to be the perfect chronograph movement. The Calibre 11 has been in a lot of iconic watches such as the Tag Heuer Monaco, The Breitling Chrono-Matic and the Hamilton Fontainebleau. The owners of the Titan Special Edition Monaco will be able to fully appreciate the Calibre 11 movement both from its functionality and the view from the exhibition caseback. The movement has a power reserve of 40 hours, and has the chronograph functionality with a ¼ seconds and a 30 minute counter.

While there has not been much in terms of recently released watches, it is very hard to ignore this watch release especially on such an iconic watch. It is limited to 500 pieces worldwide making it very exclusive and difficult for everyone to attain. It is priced at $7,900, while it is more on the expensive side if you want a very iconic watch with a legendary movement as well as the titanium look this is definitely something you should have a look at before it no longer becomes available.
