AG Heuer is adding a new limited-edition piece to its Monaco collection, marking this year’s Grand Prix de Monaco Historique of which the brand is the official sponsor. This limited edition of 500 pieces features a special dial colour, a deep green, for a rare and modern interpretation of a maverick design.
The biannual Grand Prix de Monaco Historique weekend is one of the highlights of the classic car racing calendar, and its passionate community of owners, drivers and spectators relish the spectacle of historic Grand Prix racing and the warm spirit around the legendary circuit. More than 200 Grand Prix cars representing 50 different carmakers and 21 countries enter each event. Selected for their historic value and degree of originality, they compete in seven series spanning the periods from the 1930s to the 1970s.
To celebrate the 2021 edition of this illustrious race, TAG Heuer is unveiling a limited edition, the TAG Heuer Monaco Green Dial. It showcases a colour trending in watch dials right now, highly popular among watch collectors and aficionados, a rich emerald green.
This never-seen-before dial tint in the model introduces a fresh take on the TAG Heuer Monaco and highlights the design features of the 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. 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.
The watch is presented on a black alligator leather strap and is powered by the sophisticated Calibre Heuer 02 manufacture movement, which boasts a power reserve of 80 hours. This 39 mm TAG Heuer Monaco Green Dial automatic chronograph is available in a limited edition of 500 pieces.
