First presented back in 2009 as Monaco Twenty Four Concept, this beautiful watch was has recently resurfaced as Tag Heuer Monaco Twenty Four Steve McQueen Calibre 36 Chronograph (ref. CAL51111.FC6299). The new time measuring device looks almost identical to the conceptual model, but comes in a different color scheme and has the PVD-coated body swapped for a more practical (if that adjective at all can be applied to any luxury timekeeper) stainless steel case that features a nice combination of polished and finely brushed surfaces.

This sort of precision is probably absolutely superfluous, but it is still very nice for such an expensive (it retails way above the psychologically important €10,000 mark) to be powered by one of the finest mechanisms currently in use by Swiss majors.
Despite its remarkably high speed, the caliber lasts as long as 50 hours, which makes it quite comfortable if you have more than one mechanical watch, but don’t plan to use it with an automatic winder.
As usual for their racing-inspired Monaco series, the watch features a nice combination of classic materials, vintage color schemes and high-tech design elements, those including a double-layered, see-through dial and a pretty unusual shock absorption system that protects not only the escapement wheel, but also the movement as a whole.
As the concept model, the new TAG Heuer Monaco Twenty Four Calibre 36 Chronograph replica watch features an upside-down small seconds indicator with “00” starting at 6 hours, not at 12 as on almost all other watches. Although the design may be fairly confusing at the beginning, I am positively sure that it will take almost no time for the timekeeper’s owner to adapt to the new layout.
As for the colors, I can’t say that I am sure about their design references, but it looks very close to that of 1963 Cooper Type 61 Monaco King Cobra: an British-made sport car powered by an American 4.8-liter V8 engine. Although the car wasn’t very successful on a track, I really hope that the Tag Heuer Monaco Twenty Four Calibre 36 Chronograph will be more popular among true enthusiasts.
At 40.5 millimeters wide, the watch is not terribly large. However, the way the blocky case with its relatively long horns is machined out of a single block of steel makes it look very massive on a normal wrist. Surprisingly, its bulkiness is actually quite imposing: there is a certain aura of masculine presence about this gorgeous timekeeper, which is only enhanced by its massive chronograph push-pieces and large setting crown.
I could even argue that, unlike many other similarly styled timepieces, this one would even look great not only with some casual clothing, but also would be quite home with an expensive formal suit. All you will possibly need is to make sure that colors complement each other in an organic way.
