Discover how our iconic timepiece fits seamlessly into the unbelievable true story of a team of unlikely underdogs.

Our summer of blockbusters isn’t over yet. This August we’ve got another cinematic experience to look forward to. The movie GRAN TURISMO: BASED ON A TRUE STORY tells the unbelievable real-life adventure of a team of unlikely underdogs – a struggling working-class gamer, a failed former racecar driver, and an idealistic motorsport executive. Together, they risk it all to take on the most elite sport in the world. The film is an inspiring, thrilling, and action-packed story that proves that nothing is impossible when you’re fueled from within. As GRAN TURISMO: BASED ON A TRUE STORY is all about breaking conventions and achieving the seemingly impossible, it makes perfect sense that one of the main characters wears a TAG Heuer Monaco. In fact the Monaco collection’s tagline is literally ‘Squaring the circle’. 

Made for mavericks

The square-shaped rebel has been worn by racing drivers, movie stars and rock idols. Its legend has grown over many decades. And this particular TAG Heuer Monaco is no different in its ability to attract greatness. An homage to its predecessors from the early 1970s, it exudes individuality and Swiss avant-garde. Beneath its striking façade, the timepiece is powered by the Heuer 02, a true statement of the brand’s legitimacy in the watch industry. It is also graced with a distinctive steel bracelet that will leave a glint in your eye. 

The perfect cameo

The TAG Heuer Monaco reflects the relentless pursuit of glory in a unique and unconventional way. Much like the team of protagonists in GRAN TURISMO: BASED ON A TRUE STORY defy expectations, this timepiece embraces the spirit of railing against the norm and chasing your dreams. It’s the perfect foil for a partner we’ve always valued. Our relationship with GRAN TURISMO: BASED ON A TRUE STORY is born out of a shared passion for motor racing and the unique universe it creates. And this film reinforces the seamless connection between our storied timepiece, motorsport and cinema. So prepare to be entranced by this glorious fusion of gaming and racing, featuring the TAG Heuer Monaco. Grab a tub of popcorn and get your game on.
