A Must Own Men’s Luxury Watch: TAG Heuer Monaco

Posted on January 9, 2011


If you pay attention to McQueen's wrist, he's wearing the Monaco Automatic pictured right

Immortalised by Steve McQueen in 1970’s Le Mans, to me, McQueen is the sex icon that this generation has never had. Even as a straight man this legend appeals to me, the raw charisma and sheer animal magnetism of this Hollywood bad boy, outclasses and outguns present day Edwards and Jacobs (no offense to either teams).

The Singapore limited edition Monaco is made specially in commemoration of the world's first F1 night race and Singapore's 3rd

Unabashedly macho, the Monaco Automatic is considered by many (myself included) to be a “must own” in any watch connoisseur’s collection. Now available in 100 pieces, this Singapore edition celebrates both the incredulity of the Singapore F1 race and the brand’s rich motor racing heritage in one timepiece.
