Introducing the TAG Heuer Monaco Green DialBy Sumit Nag
TAG Heuer is adding to the line-up of expressive dials recently seen on the Monaco Chronograph with the TAG Heuer Monaco Green Dial. A limited edition of 500 pieces, the timepiece has been created to commemorate the prestigious Grand Prix de Monaco Historique 2021 edition.
Of course, the watch plays to the present green dial phenomenon seen across watch launches in the year. However, TAG Heuer’s chosen to give this particular Monaco a smoked effect such that the green radiates from the center and darkens closer to the edge of the dial. The complete face of the watch is tied together by, also, having the chronograph sub dials on the watch in black.
TAG Heuer’s press material on the watch states that the particular color and treatment has never previously graced the dial of the Monaco. The dimension of its case remains at 39mm and comes with the newly configured Monaco styling where the crown and pushers are all on its right side.
Powering the timepiece is the ever reliable, Calibre Heuer 02 with 80 hours of power reserve. In keeping with the green of the dial, TAG Heuer’s colored the engraving on the rotor of the movement and as well the column wheel in a vivid green.
The timepiece will be available in select boutiques worldwide and on www.tagheuer.com from today onwards.
