TAG Heuer Monaco – Timepieces Inspired By Motor Racing

Frequently imitated, never equalled, the TAG Heuer Monaco was introduced in 1969. It pioneered square-cased, water-resistant chronograph watches and was powered by the renowned Chrono-Matic calibre 11. An unstoppable power in the luxury watch industry, it incorporated attributes that had not yet been envisioned.

Monaco stands out for design elements like the large case cut at a right angle and the bevelled crystal of practically unscratchable sapphire. The features commonly shared by the collection are a pair of push buttons at the two and four o’clock positions on the watch case and minute and hour counters that are often located at the nine and three o’clock hour markers on the dials.

Monaco soared to unprecedented peaks of fame with the 1971 auto racing movie Le Mans, where star Steve McQueen sported Monaco on his wrist.

Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso – Fiercely Distinctive, Defiantly Original

A confluence of form and function, Reverso has emerged as the crowning achievement for Jaeger-LeCoultre. This timepiece that could swivel on its axis was created to endure the rigours of polo tournaments. Reversing the case reveals a rear shielding the face from potential mallet strikes, allowing the dial to be discretely hidden.

Since its inception in 1931, the Reverso has captivated men and women alike with its timeless visage flanked by its three distinctive gadroons. Although androgynous, it excels at exhibiting its delicacy in jewelled models or reasserting its masculinity with apparent complexity and a distinct Art Déco aesthetic. It always stands out as a one-of-a-kind timepiece, whether adorned in enamel, engravings, or gemstones.

Soon after its release, aesthetically pleasing variations emerged, including dials with distinctive colours made to order in vivid red, chocolate brown, burgundy, or blue lacquer. The Reverso’s svelte design has kept up with trends without compromising the integrity of the aesthetic that made it so beloved.

Zenith Pilot – Ahead Of The Times

Since the 19th century, Zenith has been eliciting timepieces that emanate grandeur and distinction in every facet. In 1904, Zenith’s founder trademarked the word ‘Pilot’ for watches and their components. Since then, only Zenith has been authorised to use “Pilot” on the dials of its timepieces. Zenith’s Pilot range entails richly detailed aviation-styled watches. They carry significant pilot watch elements, such as a circular case, notable, knurled crown, and a highly legible, luminous dial. The presence of such details gives the watch a retro and classic feel.

The Zenith Pilot Type 20 Extra Special is one of the top models from this line featuring a statement look and a more versatile case size of 40mm. In addition, the chronograph, tourbillon, and annual calendar versions of the watch hammer home Zenith’s ingenuity and watchmaking excellence. The chronographs in the collection have sub-dials installed at the three and nine o’clock positions, operated by two pushers above and below the crown. In conclusion, the Zenith Pilot is a classic timepiece that blends a timeless aesthetic with advanced technical know-how.
