Manufacturers of luxury timepieces, TAG Heuer, has reaffirmed its long-standing association with the Principality of Monaco and its motor-racing history by partnering with the Automobile Club de Monaco (ACM) and its prestigious event, the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique.
To celebrate the appointment, TAG Heuer has introduced a limited-edition TAG Heuer Monaco timepiece as a tribute to the iconic race.
The strikingly elegant and charismatic chronograph designed especially for the occasion 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 model is produced in a limited edition of 1,000 watches, each of which is engraved with its unique number and the words “One of 1000”.
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 Grand Prix de Monaco Historique 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.
The Grand Prix de Monaco Historique timepiece is packaged in a red watch box that is decorated with a chequered racing flag – a nod to the historic Heuer watch box and the perfect touch for this contemporary 2020 classic.
It will be on display especially for racing enthusiasts at the ACM and available for pre-orders via www.tagheuer.comand in select TAG Heuer boutiques before its launch on July 27th, 2020.
