Heuer Monza is a wristwatch by Heuer.
In the 1930 and 1940 years wristwatches with pillow-shaped cases were quite common, for example from Rolex and Panerai. Even by Heuer there was launched such a model in 1930 a monopusher chronograph with manual winding movement, which already at that time bore the name “Monza” - according to the well-known Italian racetrack.
In the style of the 1970s
In 1975 Heuer launched the wrist chronograph “Monza”, equipped with the well-known self-winding movement Heuer 11 (later version Heuer 15). Especially characteristic was the model completely held in black, with red hands and scales. The watch was dedicated to the racer Niki Lauda in memory of his 3rd place at the Italian Grand Prix at Monza on September 7, 1975. This day brought the team Ferrari a new status as Formula 1 champion. The first model was produced only until 1978.
