Following the success of its 50th anniversary limited edition Monaco watches last year, TAG Heuer has added another collectible model to the family, this time to mark its status as Official Sponsor and Timekeeper of the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique.
The biannual Grand Prix de Monaco Historique weekend is one of the highlights of the classic-car racing calendar where more than 200 classic grand prix cars compete in seven series spanning the periods from the 1930s to the 1970s.
The 12th edition of the event was scheduled to take place from May 8 to 10 but has been cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic but that hasn’t stopped TAG Heuer marking the occasion with a limited edition Monaco chronograph with a red and white dial.
The small silver historic car logo of the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique is at 1 o’clock on the crimson brushed dial, which is being produced in a numbered run of 1,000 units.
The Grand Prix de Monaco Historique logo is also printed on a sapphire caseback, which exposes the watch’s Calibre Heuer 02 in-house movement.
Customers will not be able to buy the watch until August. It will retail for the equivalent of CHF 6,700.
