Anyone who’s familiar with TAG Heuer knows that racing is in our bones. Much of our history has been written on racetracks like the Monaco Grand Prix. That’s why the event means so much to us. Many great drivers, like Ayrton Senna, have lifted trophies in Monaco wearing our timepieces. More importantly, the race inspired one of our most sought-after collections. And so, to mark the 80th Monaco Grand Prix, we’re releasing our first-ever TAG Heuer Monaco Chronograph with a skeleton dial as part of our core collection. It’s yet another iconic Monaco to commemorate a special year for the Grand Prix.

Experience the adrenaline within

By equipping the timepiece with a modern, sleek skeleton body, our watchmakers have taken a giant leap towards innovation and design. For the first time in the history of the core Monaco collection, you can admire the mechanism behind the watch.

Three heart-pumping colors

Once you take your eyes off the skeleton body, you’ll be hooked to the colors of the watches. They come in original blue, racing red and turquoise. The blue is a tribute to the original TAG Heuer Monaco from 1969, made famous by Steve McQueen in the film Le Mans. The red color timepiece references heat and sparks, the fiery elements that evoke racing. And finally, the turquoise timepiece rounds off the collection.

A classic reimagined

The timepiece is framed by a sandblasted titanium Grade 2 case. The titanium offers both strength and lightness. The luminescent elements, like the date window, and the hands, treated with Super-LumiNova®, give the watch an edgy and futuristic feel. Powered by the in-house Heuer 02, all three watches offer a striking contrast to the movements of the Monaco’s original versions from the 1970s. 

The three new TAG Heuer Monaco Chronographs are exciting additions to the legendary collection. They give the watch’s classic design an avant-garde adrenaline boost. It’s a timeless way to celebrate the 80th year of the Monaco Grand Prix.
