TAG Heuer the Monaco Twenty Four Calibre 36 Chronograph - 40.5mm Black Dial

 

The oversized number 24 at 12 o’clock on the two-part, see-through dial in black opaline is a nod to the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the most famous endurance race in the world. Inside the steel case, a Calibre 36 movement runs at the stunning speed of 36,000 vibrations (corresponding to a frequency of 5 Hertz). The COSC-certified TAG Heuer movement’s unique annular oscillating mass¬† is visible through the wide sapphire crystal caseback. An “Advanced Dynamic Absorber System” protects the movement by suspending it inside the case with 4 shock-absorbing arms. The manifold arms, also visible through the crystal caseback, collect vibrations and direct them away from the movement and into the composite filter, which absorbs and dissipates their energy. The award-winning construction, tubular design and extreme shock-protected components are directly inspired by Formula One race-car technology. High tech, super-tough and Monaco-chic, with serious Steve McQueen-worthy flair.
