Carrera 60th Anniversary Edition

Monza Flyback Chronometer

Aquaracer Professional 200 Solargraph

TAG Heuer has a rich heritage of chronographs to fall back on, though under the tutelage of CEO Frederic Arnault, it’s been focusing more on developing new collections rather than relying on vintage reissues as a crutch. (We approve.) However, there’s always room in the catalog for a few callbacks to old classics, which is why we were so thrilled to see this (slightly upsized) take on the reference 2447SN.

Here’s a watch we didn’t see coming. While the Monza is a vintage classic that’s received a few modern iterations and updates over the years, these have mostly been fairly conservative in aesthetics and styling.  This thing, however, looks like something the Predator would wear while out on a date — and we mean that as a distinct compliment. Made of carbon, it comes in at 42mm and is complemented by colorful blue and red accents, a skeletonized dial and — get this — a flyback complication (i.e., you don’t have to stop the chronograph before restarting it, which makes timing successive events such as laps much easier, and more accurate).

Alright, enough with all the pricey special editions for a second. How about this: a light-powered dive watch, water resistant to 200m, available in super lightweight titanium or awesome black carbon for $3,050? (Oh, and the forged carbon version is fused with luminous material and glows in the dark — did we mention that? We thought that would pique your interest.)  Both are powered by the unique Calibre TH50-00 movement, which makes use of semi-transparent dials in the Solargraph models to recharge via ambient light. This way, you don’t need to worry about battery changes.

Our goal here is simple:  to help you live a more adventurous,  eventful and engaging life.
