While one sometimes forgets it because of TAG Heuer's reputation as the established watchmaker of the stars, this Swiss company has prided itself on being avant garde since its inception in 1860. With this unique analog Monaco wrist watch, they continue the avant garde tradition, and do proper service to the spirit of the Riviera's playful enclave. A large, 38-millimeter, square stainless steel case houses a white dial with two sub-dials for chronograph functions, and a date calendar at the six o'clock position. A white leather band with holes stamped into it continues the fashionable presentation. The watch has a synthetic sapphire crystal. It uses analog quartz movement and is water resistant to 30 meters (99 feet).
