The TAG Heuer Monaco Green Dial has been revealed on occasion of the 2021 Grand Prix de Monaco Historique, of which TAG Heuer is the Official Sponsor and Timekeeper. TAG Heuer is also the Official Watch of the Formula One Monaco Grand Prix and the Official Watch Partner of the Monaco Top Cars Collection museum, confirming the enduring bond between TAG Heuer and the Principalities’ motorsport events.
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 remarkable limited edition, the TAG Heuer Monaco Green Dial. The watch embraces 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 TAG Heuer's iconic model introduces a fresh take on the 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. The green colour is also reminiscent of the famous covered portion of the Monaco Grand Prix track, preceding the chicane by the port. 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.
Subtly contrasting its vibrant sunray-brushed dial are two black sub-dials and rhodium-plated indexes and hands with white Super-LumiNova®.
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.
The 39 mm TAG Heuer Monaco Green Dial automatic chronograph is available in a limited edition of 500 pieces.
The TAG Heuer Monaco Green Dial will also be presented in a new packaging which was created to evoke the racing heritage of the TAG Heuer Monaco collection. It is available in select boutiques worldwide and on www.tagheuer.com.
