It's no wonder that 1969 was a good year for chronographs. In 1969, a chronograph was sent to the moon. In that year, the first automatic movement chronograph was announced. It is still debatable which brand or consortium made the first announcement. We can, however, say that the other iconic chronograph of 1969 is the square chronograph, which we call the Monaco.
Monaco was the first square-shaped, angular wristwatch. The case was designed to be water-resistant, and it also housed the revolutionary self-winding Calibre 11, which was a first in the industry.IWC Replica Watches Calibre 11 was what IWC Replica Watches called the movement (TAG wasn't yet a part of the name) but some may know it as Chronomatic. This was the self winding chronograph from the consortium that included Breitling Buren Hamilton IWC Replica Watches Dubois Depraz.
The Monaco gained its most prestigious claim to fame when racing driver Jo Siffert wore the watch. Later, Steve McQueen, the King of Cool, wore the watch in the film Le Mans.
