TAG Heuer Monaco 24 Concept Chronograph Calibre 36 inspired by the supercharged race cars of the 24 of Le Mans.The watch carries an oversize “24” at 12 o’clock and the emblematic blue and orange livery of Gulf Oil – the same colours TAG Heuer Ambassador Steve McQueen wore in his 1970 film classic, Le Mans. Based on the iconic exterior of Steve McQueen’s square-shaped Monaco, the concept watch’s unique tubular design and extreme shock-protected components are directly inspired by GT racecar technology.
An innovative wonder with a unique two-part, see-through dial in an oversized, very contemporary case (40.5mm), the TAG Heuer Monaco 24 Concept Chronograph Calibre 36 is powered by the superlative TAG Heuer Calibre 36 Movement (beating at the stunning speed of 36.000 beats/hour relentlessly as the engine of a Le Mans prototype running at 350 km/h), visible from the front and through its sapphire crystal caseback.
TAG Heuer Monaco 24 Concept Chronograph Calibre 36’s powerful TAG Heuer Calibre 36 movement “floats” inside a black PVD case, suspended within an “energy manifold” steel-tube housing very much like a race car’s driver’s protective cockpit cage. The components inside the polished black PVD-coated case (based on the Monaco V4 case) are further insulated with a shock-absorbing “composite filter” material used in aerospace and auto racing.
