Coinciding with the 2021 Grand Prix de Monaco Historique, Tag Heuer releases the striking Monaco Green Dial Calibre Heuer 02.
They say red cars go faster, and if you’re a fan of Ferraris or Magnum P.I. you might agree. However, there’s another colour with a rich racing pedigree, and that’s glorious green. Think about it, there’s actually a colour called British Racing Green that’s especially popular with marques from the United Kingdom and various shades of green have been used by racing teams and production cars from Aston Martin and Jaguar through to Lotus, MG, and Bentley.
Paying homage to this iconic racing hue, and marking this year’s Grand Prix de Monaco Historique (for which the watchmaker is Official Sponsor and Timekeeper), the 39mm Tag Heuer Monaco Green Dial Calibre Heuer 02 automatic chronograph is limited to just 500 pieces and includes a head-snappingly beautiful dial in deep, shimmering emerald green.
A rare and modern interpretation of a maverick design, this never-seen-before dial tint introduces a fresh take on the Tag Heuer Monaco and highlights the unmistakable design features of the iconic square-cased steel watch. The dial gradient colour, from light green in the centre to dark green at the edge, conveys a sensation of speed. You might not have noticed, but the green colour is also reminiscent of the famous covered portion of the Monaco Grand Prix track, preceding the chicane by the port.
Subtly contrasting its vibrant sunray-brushed dial are two black sub-dials and rhodium-plated indexes and hands with white Super-LumiNova. 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.
Distinctive and timeless, the watch is presented on a black alligator leather strap and is powered by the sophisticated Calibre Heuer 02 manufacture movement, which boasts an impressive power reserve of 80 hours, which is long enough to fly to Monaco from Asia, watch the great race, and get back to catch the highlights on the telly.
