Swiss luxury watch brand, TAG Heuer has added three new racing-inspired timepieces to its iconic Monaco collection. The new launch celebrates the 80th Monaco Grand Prix and is the first time the brand has used a skeleton dial within its TAG Heuer Monaco watch line.

TAG Heuer has already had an exciting start to the year, announcing new TAG Heuer Carrera novelties at Watches and Wonders 2023 to much acclaim. Presented for the 80th Monaco Grand Prix, the new TAG Heuer Monaco Chronograph has incredible detail that race car drivers and racing enthusiasts are sure to love.

The TAG Heuer Monaco Chronograph is available in three new dial options, with all versions showing off a unique skeletonised design. The watch’s movements and integral parts are visible through the front of the dial and sapphire case back, including the custom column wheel and oscillating mass. The different dial colourways uniquely show off the inner workings dramatically.

All three TAG Heuer Monaco Chronograph watches have the classic square-shape that the Monaco collection is known for but they’ve been given a fresh take and modern avant-garde twist. Measuring at 39mm and crafted in sandblasted titanium, the new TAG Heuer Monaco Chronograph timepieces are powered by the Calibre Heuer 02 Automatic movement to ensure extreme precision.

The first new TAG Heuer Monaco Chronograph is the ‘Original Blue’. This dial option draws inspiration from the first-ever TAG Heuer Monaco blue dial that was launched in 1969. The original design has been reinvented with the new skeleton dial but still features powerful blue detailing with red and white highlights. The watch is completed with a blue embossed leather and rubber strap for versatility and sporty-style.

The next dial option is the ‘Racing Red’. This ultra-lightweight watch is a nod to the racing DNA of the TAG Heuer Monaco collection, and features red details on the minute and hour hands, which represent the sparks made by F1 cars on racing tracks. The red colouring is set against intense black and titanium, and it comes with an embossed black leather and rubber strap.

Finally, the TAG Heuer Monaco Chronograph in ‘Rebellious Turquoise’ stands out with its turquoise highlights and red lacquered hands against the black titanium case and dial. The turquoise colouring is a nod to Monaco’s coastline and it’s also finished with an embossed leather and rubber black strap.
