Pre-owned – Excellent Condition
Excellent condition, it has boxes and papers.
In 1976, Tag Heuer introduced this Monza Chonograph Calibre 15 with a black PVD coated case pictured below. This chronograph set the stage for many different companies to make racing chronograph’s that were inspired by it . This was one of the first watches in the world to offer a black PVD case.
In 2000, Tag Heuer released this more formal looking Monza Chronograph Calibre 17 with black dial in stainlesss steel. This design was a modern day version of the 1930’s Heuer mono-pusher chronograph.
These two watches are comepletey unrelated other than they are both Tag Heuer “Monza” watches. Tag Heuer combined the best of boh watches in the Monza 40th Anniversary from 2016 that is listed above for sale. They took the dial, hand and strap design from the seventies version and more or less replicated the case and pushers from the 2000’s version. They also took the styling of stainless steel pushers against a black case from the seventies version on the 2016 Monza Chronograph Cablibre 17.
The 2016 version case is made out of grade 5 titanium with titanium carbide coating which is lightyears ahead of the vintage version from the seventies which was made out of brass with black PVD coating. When the watch scratches it’s more about how soft the case is rather than the coating itself. Since the vintage one had a softer case made out of brass, it was much more susceptible to scratching, so the finishing didn’t hold up too well over the years. Because the 2016 version is made out of grade 5 titanium it’s much harder to scratch.
