Escapement Watch Review: The TAG Heuer Monaco 24 Calibre 36 Automatic Chronograph


A notable quality of the watch design is how the structural aspects of the watch’s architecture deliver much eye-appeal. The head of each bolt securing the shock absorbers is visible on the case band. This design element seems to provide a sense of solidity and mechanical honesty.


The caseback is secured with four screws and features a large, square sapphire crystal, revealing virtually all of the movement. There is no sleight of hand; TAG Heuer seems to freely disclose all aspects of the watch with welcome candor.

    I really like this watch. The only thing that puzzles me is why such a highly advanced watch manufacturer like TAG Heuer, which has an extremely aggressive research and development department, is still using other companys movement in their watches. The Zenith El Primero movement is extremely popular, but I believe in this instance that you would be buying a Zenith El Primero movement and not a TAG Heuer watch!
