Water resistant to 100m, this watch is powered by a TAG Heuer Swiss made Calibre 11 automatic movement with a power reserve of around 40 hours. This movement was featured in the original design in 1969, a movement that made this watch a revolutionary piece of watch engineering.When first launched in 1969, the excitement of this watch captured the attention of many famous icons, including Swiss driver Jo Siffert and Steve McQueen, who insisted on wearing it during filming for Le Mans in 1971.
