To celebrate the Monaco Grand Prix that had taken place last weekend, TAG Heuer unveiled a new and limited-edition collectible, the TAG Heuer Monaco Titan Special Edition. This exclusive chronograph is limited to 500 pieces.
The case of the TAG Heuer Monaco Titan Special Edition is made of Grade 2 titanium that was refined by sandblasting for a matte finish. This new watch features a silver-colored dial which perfectly complements the titanium case. A rare edition in the TAG Heuer Monaco collection, the light dial offers an attractive contrast to the sub-dials, indexes and hands of the watch.
The black sub-dials, bright red accents on the central hand and the red index marker at 12 o’clock are inspired by racing circuits and the official colors of TAG Heuer. The rubber look of the sporty anthracite alligator strap draws inspiration from the tyre grooves of racing cars. The indexes and sub-dials are coated with Super-LumiNova® to ensure optimum visibility in any conditions.
This special-edition TAG Heuer Monaco is equipped with a modern version of the famous Calibre 11 automatic chronograph movement which celebrated its debut in the original 1969 Monaco. This reinterpretation of the movement links back to the 1969 case with its engraved “Monaco Heuer” logo. The push buttons are placed on the right, while the crown is positioned on the left-hand side of the case. This version of the Calibre 11 combines all the technology and expertise of TAG Heuer and celebrates a design on which the world’s first-ever automatic chronograph was based in 1969.
The watch will be presented in a new packaging that was created to evoke the racing heritage of the TAG Heuer Monaco collection and will be sold exclusively in TAG Heuer boutiques and online.
