Tag Heuer Monaco is an exquisite collection of watches created to reflect the power and performances of racing automobiles. The Calibre 12 LS is a particular style for the Monaco line, characterized by a dynamic dial layout, interestingly shaped counters and elegant color combinations. It is the ultimate sports inspired timepiece, a magnificent example of intricate design and complex workmanship.
Unquestionably, the Monaco series is more than just a retro-designed collection of timepieces. The Tag Heuer Monaco Calibre 12 LS exemplifies beautifully how modern and innovative this watch can be. Its design is completely different than the traditional Monaco models. Its main attributes are the complicated and technical dial that is decorated with a series of innovative sub-dials and the distinctive “Linear System”(LS). Its contemporary 40.5 mm stainless steel case is a reinterpretation of the original squared case. Its most notable quality is the combination of polished and brushed surfaces.
The black dial of the watch features luminescent markers and hands, a 1/ 100th second Chronograph register at the 6 o’clock position, a 30-minute Chronograph register at 9 o’clock, a power-reserve sub-dial at 12 o’clock and a seconds counter at 3 o’clock. The LS function is supposed to display both the simple time measurement and an additional time measurement. This iconic timepiece comes with a domed sapphire crystal, a see-through caseback that allows you to admire the automatic movement and a stainless steel bracelet with a deployment clasp. Also, the case was designed to withstand pressures associated with depths of 100 meters.
The Tag Heuer Monaco Calibre 12 LS has been engineered as a very reliable and simple to use mechanical automatic movement capable of offering a series of very interesting and useful functions. At its interior beats a Tag Heuer Calibre 12 mechanism that has a 40 hours power reserve.
This unique version of the iconic Monaco timepiece is a more modern proof of the brand’s ability of designing extraordinary timepieces that are spectacular both in terms of design and utility. It is a great success for the brand in a very long sequence of watchmaking achievements.
