To fete the prestigious Grand Prix de Monaco Historique 2021, TAG Heuer is releasing an exclusive limited edition of its iconic chronograph, the TAG Heuer Monaco Green Dial Calibre Heuer 02. And yes, you heard right, it’s green.
The Grand Prix de Monaco Historique is a keystone event on any racing lover’s calendar. Many entrants from countries all over the world throw their proverbial hats in the ring for the event, competing in seven series that celebrate different eras of racecars from the 30s and onwards.
As the Official Sponsor and Timekeeper of the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique 2021, TAG Heuer is making this year’s race a touch more exciting with the release of its remarkable and quite limited edition TAG Heuer Monaco Green Dial.
The watch’s unique features, in particular the degrade on its dial, conjure up a sensation of speed for the wearer, evoking the experience of driving through a tunnel and the rush of adrenaline as you emerge into the light.
Just 500 models of this 39mm automatic chronograph are going out into the world. Fear not about missing out on this special edition, as TAG Heuer is hinting at more things green to come.
But let’s turn back the dial, shall we? Why is the TAG Heuer Monaco going green?
For one thing, Spring is in the air, and the colour green is decidedly in vogue. Thanks to many historic, green-tinged wins, British racing green became a popular choice for many sports and luxury cars. The colour has surely left its mark on a global legacy of automobile racing.
After all, it’s no wonder that in many cultures, from East to West, the colour symbolises success, prosperity, optimism, and good fortune. Think of the shamrock or jade figurines… We’re not superstitious, but who are we to turn down a bit of good luck?
