Fierce Forty

DA MAN - - Watches -

A few watches have left such an in­deli­ble mark in his­tory that the re­lease of their new in­car­na­tions be­comes a cause for cel­e­bra­tion. And what a big cel­e­bra­tion it was when the Heuer Monza Chrono­graph from was brought back to life for its 40th an­niver­sary last year. It later snagged the Re­vival Watch Prize at the pres­ti­gious Grand Prix de l’Hor­logerie de Genève, col­lected by none other than Jack Heuer, hon­orary chair­man of TAG Heuer and cre­ator of the orig­i­nal Monza back in 1976. The chrono­graph’s de­sign sig­na­tures—cush­ion­shaped case and the Heuer logo—re­main un­changed on the new 42mm nov­elty, although the ti­ta­nium case coated with black ti­ta­nium car­bide ex­udes a fierce ap­pear­ance. Not to for­get, the black sun­ray dial proudly sports an in­scrip­tion read­ing “Au­to­matic Cal­i­bre 17,” re­fer­ring to TAG Heuer’s pow­er­ful in-house move­ment.
