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.

The Speedmaster is no longer the only ceramic Omega you can get your hands on. We're partial to both the blue and red references.
