TAG HEUER BROUGHT BACK THE MONZA IN ALL OF ITS GLORY

TAG Heuer has some serious racing heritage, going hand in hand with Formula 1 like chewing tabaco does with baseball.

Back in '76, Heuer released a PVD-coated chronograph dripping in style. They called the black and red wonder the Monza and collectors chased after it, racing enthusiasts ogled it, and men of taste dreamt about it.

Now, at Baselworld 2016, they announced they're bringing the thing back. 

 

With an automatic chronograph movement, power reserve time of around 42 hours, a full-grain perforated calfskin strap, and black titanium carbide coating, this thing isn't messing around. No word on pricing or release date yet, but our best guess is around $5k and late summer '16.
