1969 (ref. 1133G) "Steve Mc Queen"
Heuer introduced the Monaco reference 1133 in 1969 as part of a line of automatic chronographs. The self-winding chronograph was a completely new innovation at that time. This Monaco reference 1133G features a grey dial with black registers, which inspired a later re-edition. The 1133G was made from circa 1970 until 1974.
The watch remains famous as Steve McQueen wore a Monaco in the car racing movie “Le Mans.” Unappreciated at the time, the Monaco has now become a cult classic with collectors. The interesting case design, rich history, and innovative movement make this watch sought after by collectors and a statement piece. - Christies
