IN-DEPTH: Speedy, stealthy, sexy

In 1975, a legend was born. Niki Lauda won his first Formula One driving title. This marked the coming together of three greats – Lauda’s skill, Ferrari’s cars and Heuer’s timekeeping. The track where it all went down? The Autodromo Nazionale in Monza, home of the Italian Grand Prix. In 1976, Heuer celebrated this milestone with the release of the original Monza, taking the Carrera case but giving it a mean black and red makeover. Then, 20-odd years later, TAG Heuer reintroduced the Monza into the line-up, this time in a distinctive, cushion-shaped case, inspired by a chronograph from the ‘30s (discover more of the Monza’s history here). This year sees these two distinct designs come together in the limited edition 40th anniversary Monza. Let’s just say it’s a winning combo. ... za-cr2080/

Many years ago I had this conversation with Mr. Lauda:

Me: Nice to meet you , Niki.
Niki Lauda: And a pleasure to meet you.
Me: How do you pronounce your last name ,Niki?
Niki Lauda: loud-a
Niki Lauda: Piss off.
