If you haven’t figured out that Man of Many is a huge fan of the Kingsman franchise by now then you should probably read our other posts here, here, here and here, or read our exclusive interview with lead actor Taron Egerton here. Having just laughed our way through the second instalment Kingsman: The Golden Circle, we thought we’d give you guys a run down of one of our favourite characters, the TAG Heuer Connected Modular 45, even if it did go uncredited.
If you’re a fan of retro, the TAG Heuer Monaco Calibre 12 delivers in spades. It’s a re-edition and modern take on the original 1969 watch, the Monaco. The bold square bezel is contrasted against radial hour indices with a striking blue face contrasted against red highlights.
Enter to win here.
With a relatively small 39mm case diameter, it’s a tasteful statement piece on the wrist that’s faithful to the original. It’s powered by the TAG Heuer Calibre 12 automatic chronograph movement with a power reserve of about 40 hours. With Saphire glass that has an anti-reflective treatment, the watch is water resistant to 100M. Al5l of this is complemented by a blue alligator leather strap.
Britain’s Bamford Watch Department has made a name for itself by customising distinguished timepieces, and recently launching their own line. In October, the company worked its magic on a handful of TAG Heuer’s legendary watches, and the results are naturally phenomenal. Owners are able to customise choice the colour on virtually every feature, from the dial to the logo to the markers to everything in between.
In this instalment of our regular watch series, The Wind Up, we take a look at a celebratory timepiece from TAG Heuer, a super contemporary beauty from Girard-Perregaux and a winning piece from the kings of haute horlogerie, Greubel Forsey. So as always, sit back, relax and enjoy!

While there’s no debate anymore around the beauty of the new Vintage assortment by Bell & Ross, these new Bellytanker versions add some charm and originality, for those who want something much more or something different, compared to classical black dial versions. The copper colour makes them quite unique and truly vintage.
Launched in 2015 by TAG Heuer, the Carrera Heuer-01 was a surprise for many with its new case design, modular construction and price positioning: a column-wheel chronograph with manufacture movement and openworked dial at under Swiss Francs 5,000.
Initially introduced with a 45 mm-diameter case emphasizing its sporty DNA, the Carrera Heuer-01 is now presented in a new size with a slightly reduced diameter of 43 mm and in a choice of three versions: intense black, deep navy blue and an elegant cognac brown.
