The magical steel square of the iconic Monaco is transformed by the Golden Circle of the Hollywood blockbuster Kingsman : The Golden Circle. First worn on-screen by Steve McQueen in the 1971 film Le Mans, this cult watch featuring a design that was incredibly avant-garde at that the time returns this fall in a ladies’ version on the wrist of Halle Berry, who plays agent Ginger Ale. The famous blued dial adopts a chocolate brown shade, sparkling with 13 diamonds gracefully swept over by gold-plated, luminescent-coated hands. For unconditional fans of spy comedies, the back of the polished steel case proclaims its association with this entertaining film category. In another interpretation of this limited-series timepiece, the case is 2mm slimmer, housing a quartz caliber instead of a self-winding movement, and elegantly teamed with a dark calfskin strap. To be worn either on or off a motorbike !
