Review: Heuer Monza Calibre 17

Tag Heuer announced the 2016 Heuer Monza Calibre 17 at BaselWorld this year, to mark and celebrate the Monza’s 40th anniversary. It’s a watch that we’ve been itching to get our hands on ever since we saw pictures of it, and thankfully the opportunity came knocking just a few weeks ago.

We wore the Monza so much, we had to pull the crown out to stop the running seconds, so we could avoid blurry hands in our photographs.
