As worn by

Evo - - RADAR -

‘ My favourite watch is my TAG Heuer Monaco, which I bought as a present to my­self on my 40th birth­day four years ago. I’ve al­ways liked TAGS and went for the Monaco on the ba­sis that, if it worked for Steve Mcqueen, it should work for me! But mine isn’t the blue- dial ver­sion that Mcqueen made fa­mous by wear­ing in the movie Le Mans, nor is it a chrono­graph. It’s a sim­ple, time- only watch with a small sec­onds dis­play at six o’clock and a date win­dow at three, but it was that sim­ple, clas­sic ap­pear­ance that ap­pealed to me.

‘ When I first bought it, I wore it all the time – un­til I dis­cov­ered how much it cost to re­place the strap with a gen­uine TAG one, to have the move­ment ser­viced and to have the case pol­ished. Then I be­gan to limit the oc­ca­sions when I wear it. I rarely, there­fore, wear it at work and, any­way, watches are not wel­come in a man­u­fac­tur­ing fa­cil­ity such as Zenos. They can cause dam­age to cars and com­po­nents, so peo­ple leave them off.’
