In 1969, Heuer shook up the watchmaking tradition by creating the first-ever square, water-resistant case. Driven by the celebrated chronomatic calibre 11, the Monaco was also the world's first square automatic chronograph. It was only one year old when Steve McQueen chose to wear it in 'Le Mans', the famous car racing film and on the wrist of this major star, it soon became an icon.
