TAG Heuer Steve McQueen Calibre 11 Watch

TAG Heuer insider blog Calibre 11brings us a first look at two new TAG Heuer Monaco McQueen editions.  For now I’m going to focus on my favorite of the two, the TAG Heuer Monaco Steve McQueen Calibre 11.  According to Calibre 11, this watch is “based on the traditional 39mm Monaco case, and like other Vintage Monaco editions, uses the Heuer logo and has the crown on the left-hand side of the case.”   One other interesting tidbit I picked up from Calibre 11’s excellent and thorough review of the new Calibre 11 McQueen is that the Calibre 11 movement is no longer based on ETA movements.  The movement is now apparently based on the Sellita SW-300 Calibre (very similar to the ETA 2892 base formerly used in the Calibre 11 movements) — this coming directly from the mouth of TAG Heuer CEO Jean-Christophe Babin.  The Steve McQueen Caliber 11 will be available exclusively in TAG Heuer boutiques starting in a few weeks.  In Switzerland, the McQueen Calibre 11 price will be CHF 7,700 (US Dollar price to be provided when available).  Again — TAG Heuer junkies will want to be sure and click through for the full backstory on this watch over at Calibre11.  Here it is…a real beauty…
