TAG Heuer brings back the Monza in a decidedly cool and colorful new execution at this year’s LVMH Watch Week. The TAG Heuer Monza Flyback Chronometer (Ref. CR5090.FN6001) makes its entrance in an ultra-light and highly resistant carbon case. Its black dial, which is skeletonized in order to reveal some of the mechanics underneath, boasts a two-register layout, with a translucent fumé blue sapphire crystal chronograph counter at 3 and the running seconds at 6 o’clock. The date window at 9 o’clock also features a luminescent design, while the chronograph chronograph hands stand out in bold red. Two scales are integrated on the periphery, a tachymeter for measuring distances and a pulsometer for measuring the pulse.
This automatic flyback chronograph is powered by TAG Heuer’s in-house self-winding caliber 02 Flyback, which has earned a COSC-chronometer certificate for proven precision and offers a power reserve of 80 hours when fully wound.
Its partially skeletonized rotor mimics the shape of a steering wheel and can be admired through the sapphire case back. The TAG Heuer Monza Flyback Chronometer comes on a textile strap with blue stitching.
