At Baselworld 2009, in addition to the Monaco 1969 Original Re-Edition Chronograph watch and the Monaco Twenty Four Concept Chronograph, TAG Heuer has presented two more boldly designed models to join the highly successful Monaco collection and commemorate the 40th anniversary of the iconic Monaco watch.
To pay tribute to TAG Heuer’s continuous partnership with Gulf Oil, an icon of motor-racing, TAG Heuer has created a limited edition timepiece named the Monaco Calibre 12 Chronograph Gulf Limited Edition. The timepiece, to be available in a limited number of 5000 pieces, is destined for avid watch collectors and fans of racing.
The case of the TAG Heuer watch measures 39mm in diameter. The case construction incorporates an anti-reflective sapphire crystal front and back.
The dial of the watch reflects its professional racing heritage. It features an orange strap and a blue one reminding of the Porsche Gulf 917K driven by Steve McQueen in Le Mans in 1970. The dial design is completed with Vintage “Gulf” logo and date window at 6 o’clock. The small seconds counter is positioned at 3 o’clock, while the chronograph minute counter is found at 9 o'clock.
The timepiece is equipped with the high-performance TAG Heuer Calibre 12 Automatic Chronograph Movement.
The TAG Heuer Monaco Calibre 12 Chronograph Gulf Limited Edition watch is secured to the wrist on an elegant grey alligator strap with grey stitching. It is expected to be launched in September 2009.
The Monaco Watch Lady Grande Date watch is one more fine addition to the Monaco collection. The most glamorous Monaco watch is created for self-assured ladies who adore luxurious accessories bearing a prestigious brand name.
The case of the TAG Heuer lady’s watch reflects the latest tendency for big-sized watches, measuring 37 x 36 mm. It embraces the wrist with a trendy white alligator leather strap.
The white mother-of-pearl dial of the timepiece
is adorned with 13 diamonds, as well as the bezel. The eye-catching Grande Date window is positioned at 12 o’clock. The dial is completed diamond-shaped hands with luminescent markers, hand-applied faceted indexes and a small-second counter at 6 o’clock.
The luxurious TAG Heuer watch is expected to be available for sale starting with June 2009.
