The Heuer Monaco is a line of chronograph wristwatches originally introduced by Heuer in 1969, in honour of the Monaco Grand Prix. The pioneering of the Monaco was revolutionary for being the first automatic and square case on a chronograph. American film star Steve McQueen used the Heuer Monaco in the movie “Le Mans”. This Monaco was an automatic Calibre 11 with the blue dial and red accents, reference 1133B. Funny thing on this model is that the crown is at the left side, while the pushers are at the right side. It’s been decades since McQueen’s death but the Heuer Monaco is still synonymous with him and the watch adopted the nickname: “the Steve McQueen”. (although he did own multiple other cool watches) The Monaco was discontinued in the 1970’s however it was reissued with a new design in 1998 and introduced yet again due to its popularity with an entirely new movement in 2003.
Heuer Monaco 1133B ‘NOS’
The one and only Heuer Monaco 1133B, powered by Caliber 11. Iconic piece from the 70s that has a wide-spread fanbase and is of horological importance. Not only Steve McQueens favorite piece but this one scores high with every watch lover. Most amazing is the complete NOS condition including original box, bracelet, buckle and open papers. The watch is running properly and is in all working order, however, due to its mint condition, we choose to not service this watch but upon request by the buyer a full revision can be arranged. This piece is one out of four never worn vintage Heuers that we offer from the collection of a gentleman Heuer fan.
