Tag Heuer released the Monza Caliber 36 Ref CR5110 in 2001, with several updates that included the use of a case shape similar to an early Heuer cushion-style case from the 1930s.  The Monza timepiece line was initially released in 1976 to celebrate Niki Lauda’s third-place finish at the Italian Grand Prix at the Autodromo Nazionale di Monza, which secured his Formula 1 championship in 1975.  The Heuer Monza Caliber 36 Ref CR5110 is fitted with the legendary El Primero movement, with its revolutionary 36,000 vibrations per hour and 50-hour power reserve.

More About The Tag Heuer Monza Caliber 36 Ref CR5110

The History

The Heuer brand was created in 1860 and specialized in stopwatches and chronographs.  Their focus was on instruments used in sports, such as dashboard timers.  However, the focus shifted for Heuer brands in the late 1950s and early 1960s, as the popularity of chronograph wristwatches was gaining momentum.  In 1962, when Jack Heuer, a race car driver and motorsport enthusiast, became head of the company, he spearheaded the creation of the Carrera watch.  

The Watch

The Monza Caliber 36 Ref CR5110 features a 40mm cushion-shaped case with a sapphire crystal and an exhibition case back.  The circular dial is black, with a guilloché-like pattern, applied Arabic numerals, three sub-dials at the 3, 6, and 9 o’clock positions, and a date window at the 6 o’clock position.  There is an outer 60-minute track on the dial, with lume plots at each hour marker and sword-style lumed hour and minute hands.  Powered by the El Primero 400 movement, the Monza Caliber 36 has a 50-hour power reserve and a water resistance rating of 50 meters.
