TAG Heuer unveils Monaco Green Dial modern to commemorate Grand Prix Historique
The Swiss watchmaker is honouring the biennial vintage car race with a stunning new design
TAG Heuer has announced the unveiling of a new edition of its Monaco chronograph in honour of the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique 2021, the biennial vintage motoring event.
The watch, which will be limited to 500 pieces, is being released to mark the brand’s position as official sponsor and timekeeper of the event and will feature a never-seen-before dial tint representing a fresh take on the TAG Heuer Monaco - deep emerald green.
To hear the brand describe it, the deep green of this new model "highlights the unmistakable design features of the iconic square-cased steel watch", "conveys a sensation of speed" and is "reminiscent of the famous covered portion of the Monaco Grand Prix track, preceding the chicane by the port".
The markings engraved on the oscillating mass and the column wheel of its in-house movement are also green and visible through the sapphire crystal caseback, and the watch is paired with a black alligator leather strap.
Inside, this stunning timepiece is kept ticking by the Calibre Heuer 02 manufacture movement, which boasts an impressive power reserve of 80 hours.
