The emblematic design, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, won the award in the “Revival” category.

The Heuer Monza has been highly sought-after by collectors since 1976 when Jack Heuer, the great grandson of the founder, designed a chronograph to celebrate Niki Lauda’s first Formula 1 world championship title with Ferrari.

This year marks the return to the origins of the watch, since today’s model features two key functions – the pulsometer and the tachymeter scale – which were not included on previous reissues.

The original font, and the red hands and counters, reflect the watch’s racing heritage, while positioning it firmly as a new, contemporary design.
