TAG Heuer reaffirms its long-standing association with the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique with a limited-edition TAG Heuer Monaco timepiece that pays tribute to the city’s iconic race.
Few Grand Prix events compare to the adrenaline, the glamour, the luxury, and the history of the Grand Prix de Monaco. Held annually on the Circuit de Monaco as a Formula One race, this iconic race has run since 1929. Considered one of the most important races on the F1 calendar, Monaco is the only city that doesn’t have to actually pay to host the race, thanks to the prestige it brings to the sport of motor racing.
Despite this year’s event being cancelled due to the global coronavirus epidemic, the official timekeeper of the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique, TAG Heuer, has created a limited-edition version of its eye-catching TAG Heuer Monaco timepiece that pays homage to the world-renowned race.
Limited to just 1,000 pieces, the strikingly elegant and charismatic TAG Heuer Monaco chronograph features the signature red-and-white colour code that is reminiscent of eye-catching sports cars from the thrilling world of motor racing. The small silver historic car logo of the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique at the 1 o’clock position on the crimson brushed dial instantly links this special model to the historic race.
This TAG Heuer Monaco wristwatch is presented on a luxurious perforated strap made of fine-grain black leather. The stainless-steel case back of this iconic square model has a transparent sapphire glass with the Monaco GP logo printed on the inside through which the sophisticated Calibre Heuer 02 in-house mechanical movement is visible.
With a total of 168 individual components, including a column wheel and a vertical clutch, the TAG Heuer Calibre Heuer 02 offers outstanding precision and an extraordinary 80-hour power reserve.
