One of the things I really like about this whole watch thing is that I can still be surprised. And when I spotted this post from the truly excellent Calibre 11, one of the leading resources for all things TAG Heuer and Heuer. * Now, Iím not claiming that Iím all over the Monaco ó after all, the model turns 50 this year, and thereís been quite a bit of variation. But I did not expect to see a digital Monaco. Except*then I did. This watch,*with the very Swiss name of the Monaco Sixty Nine (in reference to the 1969 debut of the original Monaco), isnít just a digital watch Ė itís reversible. One side boasts a conventional manual wind, the other a digital module. Itís an ingenious concept, and well executed.*Well played TAG Heuer.* Read the full, excellent and extensive story on Calibre 11.*
