The TAG Heuer Monaco Automatic watch and the TAG Heuer Monaco Sixty Nine watch may look the same to an untrained eye but they are quite different. In the past we have talked about the TAG Heuer Monaco Sixty Nine, today we are going to get a closer look at the TAG Heuer Monaco Automatic watch.
First, let’s take a look at the TAG Heuer Monaco Automatic watch dial which comes in blue, black (above), and mother-of-pearl. The hour, minute and second hands are not only polished but are also nickel plated for the black dial and for the blue dial the second hand is red. The dial is surrounded by a square steel case with differentiating finishes from fine-brushed to polished. Finishing off the dial on this TAG Heuer watch is the MONACO name and the TAG Heuer logo which appear at 12 o’clock and in white lacquer for the white and blue dial and black for the mother-of-pearl dial.
The case of the TAG Heuer Monaco Automatic watch features a screw in case back with sapphire crystal on both sides. The crown comes with a fluting technology to make adjustments on the TAG Heuer watch easy and ensure 50 meters of water resistance.
Finishing off the look of the watch is numerous choices of straps depending on the model chosen. These include a black or blue alligator strap or a black rubber strap with a folding buckle.
