Enthusiasts have long hunted down examples of the famed Heuer Monaco which, for a brief period, came in a black PVD-coated case.
Now you can acquire one much more easily, well a modern version that is. The Tag Heuer Monaco Calibre 6 Automatic Full Black indeed has a black titanium carbide-coated case, black dial with white luminescent markers, a red small seconds hand and is mounted on a perforated calfskin leather strap with red lining. No, it might not be the sought-after original, but what can’t be argued is its wrist-presence and the fine – not to mention hard to scratch – finishing of the new compared with the old. $4250.
