The Monaco Collection by Tag Heuer features bold rectangular watches with masculine touches, but designed for women. TheĀ Tag Heuer Monaco Calibre II Limited Edition Automatic Chronograph 39mm Watch CAW211C.FC6241 is one such piece.

This limited edition watch comes with the following features:

  • Stainless steel case
  • Scratch-resistant sapphire crystal
  • Black leather strap
  • Date function
  • Water-resistant up to 100 meters

The appeal of this Monaco Calibre watch lies in its simplicity. The stainless steel and leather combination results in a timeless look that will remain in style for years to come. The scratch-resistant and water-resistant features give the piece a durability that add to its longevity, while the black leather strap provides a snug, yet comfortable, fit to the wrist. The date function sits at the 6 o’clock position. The hands are plated with just a hint of orange, giving the face of the watch a practical yet interesting look. There are two sub-dials at the 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock positions, with chronograph functions.

Some elements of this watch could deter potential buyers from making the purchase. The orange coloring on the hands provides some contrast on the face of the watch, but not enough to make the hands clearly visible. Without any numerals, this lack of contrast makes the watch difficult to read at a glance. The rectangular shape is simple and classic, yet the overall look of the piece is very masculine, with no feminine elements to offset this. The large face and thick strap of this piece make it look like a man’s watch. This could repel some women who are looking for something more soft and feminine.

The retail price for this timepiece is not listed, but as it is a limited edition piece, it is safe to assume the final price point is high. However, this piece may be too masculine for many women, who would be better served looking for a more feminine collection. It is also difficult to read at first glance, which may prompt buyers to opt for a more available and easy to read watch.
