The watch has a dynamic appeal with its two-tone dial with red inserts and luminous dots, as well as the red chronograph hands. Ofered in exceptional condition, the watch appears to have been unworn, or very little worn since it was frst manufactured. The case is sharp with well-defned lines and facets. The Monaco is a wonderful expression of the 1960s and 1970s when freedom, extravagance and daring to be diferent where en vogue.
