Description

This new TAG Heuer Monaco goes beyond the norm and opts for titanium, a material rarely used in this collection. The case is made of Grade 2 titanium, renowned for being both exceptionally light and tough, refined by sandblasting for a matte finish which lends the watch a raw beauty.

The black sub-dials, bright red accents on the central hand and the red index marker at 12 o’clock add character to the overall look while revelling in references to racing circuits and the official colours of TAG Heuer. The world of motor racing also inspired the rubber look of the sporty anthracite alligator strap and recalls the tyre grooves of racing cars. The indexes and sub-dials are coated with Super-LumiNova® to ensure optimum visibility in any conditions.

Finally, this special-edition TAG Heuer Monaco Titan 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.

This new TAG Heuer Monaco Titan Special Edition features a vivid and gleaming silver-coloured dial which perfectly complements the titanium case. A rare edition in the TAG Heuer Monaco collection, the light dial offers the benefit of very good visibility and an attractive contrast to the sub-dials, indexes and hands of the watch.
