Heuer released the first Monaco (reference 1133) in 1969 with the automatic caliber 11, which was one of the first three automatic chronograph movements. With its distinctive square case, the Monaco was the first automatic chronograph wristwatch produced in that shape. The model name was inspired by the renowned Formula 1 race in the principality of Monaco and is also nicknamed 'Steve McQueen', after the famous American actor and racing enthusiast wore it during the movie Le Mans in 1971.
