2009 is the 40th anniversary of Jack Heuer's original Monaco watch, which has since spawned a dynasty of related designs based around the distinctive square face. This Monaco LS is the first in the family to be offered with a steel bracelet. "We've been trying for years to design a steel bracelet for the Monaco," says TAG Heuer brand manager, Thomas Houlon, "but somehow we could not find a nice balance between the bracelet and the head of the watch.
