TAG Heuer reintroduces its iconic TAG Heuer Monza watch. The new TAG Heuer Monza Flyback Chronometer is a special edition with a 42-mm case, made of ultra-lightweight and resistant carbon.
The black dial of the new model features a two-register layout with a sheer fumé blue sapphire crystal chronograph counter at 3 and the permanent second at 6 o’clock. The skeletonized dial showcases the movement underneath. At 9 o’clock, the date window is in blue luminescent, a first for TAG Heuer, and the blue lacquered indexes and black and white lacquered hours and minutes hands are applied with Super-LumiNova® for optimal legibility in low light.
The TAG Heuer Monza Flyback Chronometer is powered by the in-house Calibre Heuer 02 Flyback, a chronograph movement with COSC certification. A flyback function allows the chronograph to be reset without stopping it, using the black DLC steel pushbuttons. Such a feature was only available on the TAG Heuer Autavia in the modern collection until now and allows for even faster and more accurate timekeeping.
The watch offers three functions that are important to a racing driver in action: a chronograph, a tachymeter scale that shows average speed for a 1-kilometer or 1-mile distance, measured using the indicator on the black flange, as well as a pulsometer, which helps determine one’s heartrate per minute. This function is used based on the blue line in the top right quadrant of the dial which is calibrated to 15 heartbeats per minute. The user launches the chronograph and counts 15 heartbeats, getting his personal read when stopping the chronograph. The pulsometer offers a range of 60 to 200 beats per minute.
Red details, on the dial such as the sub-counter hands and the framing of the date window, represent exhilarating speed and racing hearts. They contrast against the black dial and case and the bright blue indexes, seconds hand and stitching on the custom textile strap.
The TAG Heuer Monza Flyback Chronometer is presented in special packaging and will be sold exclusively in TAG Heuer boutiques, on the brand’s e-commerce websites and in selected retail stores.
