TAG Heuer has used this weekend’s Monaco Grand Prix to unveil the first of five 50th Anniversary Monaco watches that will launch this year; one for each decade since the iconic chronograph first appeared in 1969.
Each of the new models is inspired by the trends, colours and styles that characterised each decade of the Monaco’s half-century history.
Emblematic geometric shapes and colours from the 1970s, combined with a time Côtes de Genève pattern are some of the features that distinguish the first model to celebrate theMonaco’s 50th anniversary.
Presented on a brown leather racers’ strap with holes lined in light brown, this stainless-steel timepiece has been produced in an edition limited to only 169 pieces.
The green dial features brown and yellow touches and a Côtes de Genève finishing.
The hands are coated with SuperLuminova.
The caseback of this 1970s-inspired timepiece is engraved with the original “Monaco Heuer” logo as well as “1969-1979 Special Edition” and “One of 169”.
It houses a calibre 11 automatic movement.
