As au­to­matic watches gained in pop­u­lar­ity in the mid-1960s, it was im­per­a­tive that TAG Heuer (then Heuer) made an au­to­matic chronograph move­ment to keep up. In a bid to one-up its com­pe­ti­tion who were plan­ning sim­i­lar re­leases, Jack Heuer sur­rep­ti­tiously se­cured an ex­clu­sive case de­sign from sup­plier Pi­querez that even­tu­ally be­came the Monaco. The square case, with crown on the left and push­ers on the right, is now em­blem­atic of this line. ($8,100)
