Finally, after 20 years being one of TAG Heuer‘s most iconic timepieces, the Monaco is coming back with its very own metal bracelet.

Inspired by similar designs in the ’70s, the new bracelet carries an “H” design for its horizontal links, connected via smaller links running down the center, leading to a butterfly clasp with double safety push buttons. “The bracelet is particularly important for any wristwatch — without a good bracelet, the timepiece lacks desirability,” said the Swiss watchmaker’s Heritage Director, Catherine Eberlé-Devaux. “For the new Monaco timepieces, we have alluded to its brilliant past with a familiar design and color while reinforcing that the collection is moving forward with innovative new technology.”

The timepiece itself is now at a more modest 39 mm case size and come in two color options: black and blue. Open to view under a sapphire caseback is the new in-house caliber Heuer 02 chronograph, an automatic movement operating at 4Hz. To complement the racing pedigree of the watch, the movement features a speedy red column wheel with vertical clutch integrated chronograph function, a blacked-out and skeletonized rotor, as well as vertical Geneva stripes on the bridges. Power reserve comes in at an impressive 80 hours, with water-resistance at 100 meters.

For those interested, the black iterations of TAG Heuer’s new Monaco Chronograph 39 are now available, with the leather strap version going for $6,350 USD and the stainless steel bracelet version retailing at $6,750 USD. The blue edition will be available beginning January 2021.

Elsewhere in watches, 8FIVE2 has released a triple-black edition of its “ALL DAY” watch.
