You may have heard about a little race known as the Formula 1 Grand Prix de Monaco. And when we say ‘little’, we mean it, but only in part: the course at the Formula 1 Grand Prix de Monaco is indeed the shortest Formula 1 track, but it has the longest lap time, thanks to its hairpin turns and voluptuous curves. But then, you might’ve already read our history of this legendary race, always aglow with glamour and danger.

As Official Watch of the Formula 1 Grand Prix de Monaco since 2011, TAG Heuer is honoured to be back in the Principality to celebrate the legendary race and highlight of the Formula 1 season, in the presence of His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco.

We kicked off the exciting weekend this friday with a private reception held at the iconic Automobile Club de Monaco, of which we have been a partner since 2011 as well. To mark the occasion, His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco and Max Verstappen were presented with one-of-a-kind TAG Heuer Monaco timepieces, especially designed and engraved with personalized markings.

And this Sunday, just two days after being presented with a one-of-a-kind TAG Heuer Monaco timepiece, Max Verstappen wins the 78th Monaco Grand Prix in the Principality after a dominant performance ahead of Carlos Sainz and Lando Norris on the podium.

Max Verstappen’s second season win and his first at the Monaco circuit marks an exciting closing to a successful weekend for the Red Bull Racing Honda Team as well as for the longstanding partner of racing in the Principality, TAG Heuer.

As a result of this incredible result, Max Verstappen takes the lead in the Formula 1 driver standings for the first time in his career. As Official Watch of the Monaco Grand Prix since 2011, we are honoured to be back in Monaco to celebrate the legendary race and highlight of the Formula 1 season.

The iconic square-shaped chronograph, created in 1969, named after the glamourous race and brought to the big screen by Steve McQueen in his 1971 movie Le Mans, symbolizes our love for speed and our deeply-rooted racing spirit. In this new TAG Heuer Monaco special edition, a lucky charm for Max Verstappen, the case was reimagined in ultra-lightweight and robust titanium with a striking silver dial and black sub counters, on a novel anthracite leather strap with a texture recalling the grooves of race car tires.
