Collector Richard Crosthwaite shares his passion with this 120 page book, Heuer Monaco – Design Classic, featuring high-resolution images of all 15 known production and test dial executions for the vintage Heuer Monaco (1969-1975). Whether it qualifies as a “Design Classic”…we will leave that to others to debate. At the least, it is avant-garde!
The book tells the story of the inception of the Monaco, to how the watch is perhaps best known – in Le Mans with Steve McQueen (1133B), and the start of the world’s first automatic chronographs (er, at least the first modular automatic chronographs, the Chronomatics.
One of the benefits of print-on-demand books is the ability to (relatively) easily update material ,and the latest version includes minor updates to data for 2017.
