The Gulf editions of the TAG Monaco are the most collectable. Yes, some rare brown or red dial models are hard to find, but almost every TAG fan wants a Gulf colours Monaco. It just looks the part.
This year TAG has added a bold 60 number at the 12 o’clock position, plus sharpened the watch is subtle ways. It is still Steve McQueen retro, but looks modern too. Not easy to do, as Zenith often prove with remakes of the El Primero.
The dial refresh is bang on we think, love the 60 detail and the gulf colours on the sub-dial too. Cal 02 movement inside, 39mm case means it’s a versatile everyday watch if you’re in the mood too.
Priced at £5850, it’s not too expensive compared to many other Swiss chronographs and the new, more macho caseback view, the crisp dial details and that blue calf leather strap are making us drool slightly.
