Revisited: TAG Heuer Monaco 24 Watch

The Monaco 24 by TAG Heuer, is a stunning limited edition timepiece that since its original concept presentation in Basel in 2009 (though not launched until late 2010), has been a watch that epitomises Swiss luxury.  The 24 series was named to honor one of the most iconic races in motor racing, the Le Mans 24 hour race, but it wasn’t just the name that was inspired by the racing, it was the design and engineering behind it.  Underneath the polished titanium square casing and the shock absorbing arms lies the precise Calibre 36 movement which was designed and built to reflect the spectacular performance of the racing cars which feature in the endurance race.  The racing striped chronograph function dial and the black reptile skin detailed strap complete what is one of the boldest designs yet for the iconic Monaco collection.

    Love the watch – it is a Monaco after all – but a question: for the life of me I cannot figure out how the 9 & 3 o’clock dials work.

    Hi James,

    Good question, it baffled me too when I originally saw the pics, but when you have the watch in hand, it’s pretty simple. Each dial has 2 hands, so when the one hand completes its half turn on the sub-dial it hides under the middle section of the watch for another hand to appear to do the next half rotation.

    The opening few seconds of this video should give you a better idea

    Hope that answers your question.
