TAG Heuer Monaco GULF Special Edition
Since decades, TAG Heuer has a strong and enduring bond with the Principalities’ motorsport events. As proof, the brand is not only the official sponsor of the Monaco Historic Grand Prix, but also the Official Watch of the Formula One Monaco Grand Prix and the Official Watch Partner of the Monaco Top Cars Collection Museum.
The Monaco Historic Grand Prix weekend is one of the highlights of the classic car racing calendar, and its passionate community of owners, drivers and spectators relish the spectacle of historic Grand Prix racing and the warm spirit around the legendary circuit. For each edition, more than 200 cars representing 50 different carmakers and 21 countries enter in competition. Selected for their historic value and degree of originality, they compete in seven series spanning the periods from the 1930s to the 1970s on a majestic stage, the famous circuit of the Principality. In 2022, to celebrate this thrilling new edition of the Monaco Historic Grand Prix which promises to be memorable, TAG Heuer launches the Monaco Gulf Special Edition, a timepiece eagerly awaited by watch collectors.
The TAG Heuer Monaco Gulf timepiece embodies the passion for motorsport that drives TAG Heuer and its lasting partner Gulf. For the 2022 edition, TAG Heuer and Gulf celebrate once again this shared passion with a stunning version of the TAG Heuer Monaco Gulf Edition. More refined, with a beautiful design and the in-house Heuer 02 movement that is housed in the fine brushed and polished steel case, the TAG Heuer Monaco Gulf Special Edition is a true eye-catcher.
For this new special edition, the design of the TAG Heuer Monaco Gulf continues to be based on the three iconic colors of Gulf but this time in a more contemporary color combination: the special dark blue, turquoise, and orange. Focusing on the watch’s dial, the sleek Gulf touches are mixed with the refined aesthetic of the TAG Heuer Monaco. The Gulf accents have also been featured in an elegant way and for the first time, the three colors are present on the minute sub-counters at 3 o’clock, too. A premiere in the Monaco Gulf watch editions, the Gulf logo on the dial is totally white. To emphasize the elegance of the watch, the opaline sunray brushed dial brings to the watch an interesting aesthetic duality.
On the back, the TAG Heuer Monaco Gulf Special Edition has a unique version of the oscillating mass and column wheel with a special engraving colored to match the Gulf orange pantone. To complete the sporty but sophisticated look of the watch, the strap is made with of perforated blue calfskin leather and an orange lining. The TAG Heuer Monaco Gulf Special Edition watch comes with a new packaging featuring a box and a special travel pouch, also using the refreshed Gulf colors. The TAG Heuer Monaco Gulf Special Edition is available and sold worldwide in the TAG Heuer boutiques and on the e-commerce website of the brand.
