TAG Heuer adds a vintage-style integrated bracelet to the 39 mm Monaco Heuer 02 for 2020.

It has been nearly two decades since a new Monaco was presented on a metal bracelet, according to the company. This new H-shaped bracelet is a contemporary version of a design from the early 1970s.

Introducing the TAG Heuer Monaco Chronograph 39 mm Calibre Heuer 02 Automatic, available in a black or blue sunray brushed dial with the ergonomic retro bracelet. There’s also a third option with a black dial and black leather strap — but the bracelet is the way to go.

“The bracelet is particularly important for any wristwatch — without a good bracelet, the timepiece lacks desirability. 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,” says TAG Heuer’s Heritage Director, Catherine Eberlé-Devaux.

While subtle, the bracelet is wider at the lugs, and then tapers down towards the clasp for improved comfort. The horizontal bars are connected with smaller horizontal links. A butterfly clasp with double safety push-button secures the bracelet on the wrist, and when closed, the clasp completes a TAG Heuer shield emblem which is engraved on the two clasp ends.

As mentioned above, the stainless steel case measures 39 mm in diameter. Topped with a tall beveled, domed sapphire crystal, and combined with the polished and brushed 39 mm diameter stainless steel case — the look is modern yet has a throwback size and feel.
