When launched in 1969, the Monaco was the first water-resistant watch with a square case and the first automatic chronograph. The very next year, Steve McQueen fell for its stunning look and wore it in his classic Le Mans movie. The legendary actor made it an icon.

Way ahead of its time then, it is still as absolutely cutting-edge in its newest incarnation, the Monaco Calibre 6 Automatic 2014.

The 2014 Monaco Calibre 6 is completely in line with the Monaco universe. The new edition offers uncompromising styling and a daring all-black look, with black titanium carbide-coated case (with special fine-brushed and polished finishings) and crown, black dial with white luminescent markers and high-contrast red small second hand, and a black sub-counter with opalin finishing. The perforated calfskin leather strap with red lining adds that final touch of masculine swagger.

The timepiece is available exclusively from May to September 2014.
