TAG Heuer Monaco’s latest creation, which has been a chronograph for racers since its introduction in 1969, features a unique two-piece luminous dial called “circle within square”. At night, in contrast to the dark gray of the “circle” in the center of the dial, the hour and minute hands, the second hand of the chronograph and the bright blue with the Super-LumiNova finish on the award stand out, allowing accurate time reading.
The two expressions of light and dark are created by the “square” part, which changes from day to night, and the area around the dial changes from cool light gray to bright blue to emit light, and the time is indicated by black lacquered indices. The chronograph’s registers have also changed to glowing blue, revealing black marks and hands indicating minutes and hours.
In addition, durability indispensable for driving at night is also taken into consideration, and the case is made of grade 5 titanium, the first of its kind in the Monaco collection. The sturdy and durable material is coated with a black diamond-like carbon coating that is lightweight and comfortable to wear for a long time.
The movement is the company’s Heuer 02 calibre, which has a power reserve of around 80 hours, which allows it to stay in motion throughout the weekend. From the caseback, you can see the black rotating rotor, blue-printed letters, blue column wheels, and other mechanisms that have the same color scheme as the dial.
The timepiece is packaged in a special travel pouch that evokes the tradition of lace from the Monaco Collection and costs 1,193,500 yen. It is available at TAG Heuer boutiques, official online boutiques and select authorized retailers.
