In 1975 Niki Lauda won his first F1 world championship title with Ferrari. To celebrate that victory, in 1976 Tag Heuer replica watch launched a chronograph with the name Monza on the dial.
The coussin case of the TAG Heuer Heuer Monza replica watch was inspired by a 1925 model. Proposed in black, the chronograph was equipped with a pulsometer and a tachymeter scale with red hands and counters to reflect its racing heritage. In 2016, with the new Heuer Monza 40th Anniversary, Tag Heuer reissues the historical TAG Heuer Heuer Monza replica watch maintaining the two key functions – the pulsometer and the tachymeter scale – and using the original font.
The case of TAG Heuer Heuer Monza replica watch, whose diameter has been increased from 39 mm to 42 mm, is now made from grade 5 titanium coated with titanium carbide so combining extreme lightness with a powerful matt black appearance. It offers water resistance to 100 metres / 330 feet. Crown and push-buttons are made of polished steel. The screw-on back is numbered and features the historic logo engraved with red lacquer finish.
Like the original, the new TAG Heuer Chronograph replica watch case is all black. Instead, the hour and minute hands are black and white lacquered with indices treated with vintage orange Super-LumiNova. The historic Heuer logo on the dial is used to remark the model’s place in the manufacture’s historic collection.
Completed by a racing strap in full-grain black calfskin with top-stitching, the TAG Heuer Heuer Monza replica watch 40th Anniversary is proposed by Tag Heuer.
