TAG Heuer Launches Racing Blue Monaco

From JustLuxe content partner iW Magazine

TAG Heuer re-affirms its close connection to motorsports with the new Monaco Chronograph Racing Blue Limited Edition, a new edition of the famed square racing chronograph boasting a dial accented in a particularly French shade of blue.

The new TAG Heuer Monaco Chronograph Racing Blue Limited Edition.

The highlight color of the new Monaco chronograph model is meant to recall the early days of automotive racing when cars were distinguished by their national colors rather than the colors of a manufacturer or sponsor. TAG Heuer’s new Monaco Chronograph Racing Blue also references the hues of automotive brands like Talbot-Lago, Delage, and Bugatti.

Thus, TAG Heuer designers colored the sub-dials and strap on the new watch with blue tones, twelve blue markers, and rhodium-plated hour and minute hands with blue SuperLumiNova.

This color scheme nicely matches the silvered sunray brushed dial said to recall the engine-turned dashboards of sports cars in the 1920s and 1930s. A hard-to-miss yellow stripe announces the chronograph central hand and the faceted baton marker at 12 o’clock.

Inside the 39mm titanium case TAG Heuer fits its modernized automatic Calibre 11 chronograph movement, which is visible through the clear sapphire case back.

The watchmaker decorates the back of the watch with a “One of 1000” engraving that details the number of watches available in this TAG Heuer Monaco Chronograph Racing Blue Limited Edition series.

TAG Heuer supplies a perforated blue calfskin strap with the watch. It’s linked to the wrist with a titanium folding clasp decorated with an engraved Heuer logo.

Price: $9,200.
