In the 1970’s, Heuer was the official timekeeper of the Ferrari racing team. So, to celebrate Niki Lauda’s Formula 1 title victory in 1976, Jack Heuer – great grandson of the brand’s founder – designed a special chronograph. This, the original Monza was born. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of this iconic watch, the brand has released a modern version that very much remains true to the original. Paying homage to the design, the new Monza retains the original watch’s ‘coussin’ case and even the original font. The case is now made from grade 5 Titanium (instead of Steel), making it quite a bit lighter. It still retains the original Heuer logo, as well as the black-and-white lacquered hour and minute hands. Finished in all-black, with beautiful red detailing, the Monza is a stunning watch with a pedigreed history. Clearly, a watch that would occupy a proud place in any automotive enthusiast’s watch collection.
