The Monaco was the first square waterproof automatic chronograph and quickly became a cult classic when Steve McQueen wore it in Le Mans (1971). This watch is the 2nd Limited Edition version or “Monaco GULF II”, which debuted in 2007 to mark the 40th Anniversary year of the original 1967 watch. Limited Edition of 4000 watches. This black-dial model features the pale blue / orange Gulf Oil colours and a right-hand sub-dial, harking back to the design of the Calibre 15 Monaco from the 1970s.
