watch, designed from the 30's, is based on a very unique 'cushion' form. It
is named after a legendary car race in Milan, Italy. This model is the first
re-edition and is signed HEUER on the face watch, deployant buckle, crown and
case back. Subsequent productions of the same model are all signed TAG Heuer,
recently part of the LVMH group (Louis Vuiton Moêt Henessy) joining Zenith,
Chaumet and Ebel brand names. Current production is based on the caliber 17.
There is yet another version of the Monza called 'Calibre 36'. It is a C.O.S.C.
certified chronographer running at 36.000 A/h with a power reserve of 50 hours
at least. The same Caliber can be found in the Rolex Daytona model.

Power reserve 42h.

This unique tonneau shape case was designed by Mr. Jack Heuer himself some 40 years ago and is a tribute to the world of car racing and aviation. The original design of a panel counter became the Autavia watch model in 1963 which case is the host of a beautiful chronomatic movement labeled Caliber 11. The crown to the left and the 2 registers to the right gives the Autavia a very modern and sporty looks, beautiful with a black face, silver registers and orange hands matching the mat black leather band with orange stichings. I'm not usually drawned to contemporary watches but I just love the reviewed and improved Autavia design!
