Monaco was originally known as Heuer Monaco. Its collection of automatic chronograph watches was
built in honour of the 1969 Monaco Grand Prix Formula One motor race. The production of this Monaco watch model ceased in the mid-1970s. Nevertheless, it relaunched with a new design in 1998 and went through another upgrade with completely new mechanisms in 2003. Some of the famous TAG Heuer watches in the Monaco

The new watch features an exemplary 39mm by 39mm square-shaped case and a dial face with two contrasting stripes of blue and vivid orange. Additionally, this watch features a modern movement that is based on ETA. The sapphire crystal on its see-through case back also makes its operations visible. The Gulf logo sits above the date window at
the 6 o’clock position. The hands along with the 5-minute markers use bright red lacquer to further showcase the “Gulf-inspiration.” Finally, a blue leather strap with orange stitching gives the watch a complete finish. Another eye-catching model from the brand is the
TAG Heuer Formula 1 Gulf Special Edition.

It is a sports watch with a dynamic sporty design that holds strong performance capabilities. You will find silver tone luminous hands and index hour markers with minute markers around the outer rim along with 3 white sub-dials. Undoubtedly, the racing watch model is TAG Heuer's proof of a strong connection with the world of motorsports. Next, the TAG Heuer Formula 1 Chronograph model comes with a perforated black rubber strap. Its black titanium carbide coated bezel and stainless steel lugs are just as impeccable. The metallic-raised tachymeter scale adds more detail to the design.

This model also features stainless steel luminous hour markers and holds three sub-dials at the 3, 6, and 9 o'clock positions.

A date window is visible as well at the 4 o'clock position. The TAG Heuer Formula 1 Chronograph can also be found with with a metal strap instead of a rubber one.
