TAG Heuer Monaco Twenty Four Concept Chronograph celebrates Le Mans race

We know that Europe's biggest endurance race, the 24h of Le Mans, is going to take place on 13rd and 14th of June and as usual, in order to celebrate this event, Tag Heuer, the well-known watch manufacturer revealed today its latest Monaco Twenty Four Concept Chronograph. The new watch features an oversized 24 at 12 o-clock as well as the emblematic blue and orange colors of Gulf Oil, the same colors that Steve McQuenn wore in his 1970 film classic, Le Mans.

The watch shows an unique tubular design,two innovative two-part sub-counters at 9 and 3 o'clock, is made using industrial-grade tungstem and is powered by the superlative TAG Heuer Calibre 36 Movement.

Of course, it is also water resistant to 100 meters, features anti-reflective double-sided treatment on the curved sapphire scratch-resistant crystal glass and comes with the revolutionary new shock absorber, the Advanced Dynamic Absorbtion System (ADAS) - which makes it able to resist to an impact of 24,000 G or a 20-metre fall.
