“Monaco Grand Prix” Edition Monaco & Carrera
TAG Heuer celebrated yesterday’s Monaco Grand Prix by unveiling a brace of watches to mark the brand’s position as the official timing partner of the Automobile Club de Monaco (
Appropriately, three of the models launched are from the Monaco series- the TAG Heuer Monaco ACM Calibre 12 (above), the Heuer Monaco McQueen Calibre 11 and the TAG Heuer Monaco Twenty-Four McQueen Calibre 36.
Joining the posse of Monacos is a single Carrera- a Day-Date Calibre 16 Chronograph (below).
The Monaco Grand Prix
You don’t have to know anything about motor sport or Formula 1 to have heard of the Monaco Grand Prix. The event is run through the streets of Monte Carlo (well, most of the track sits in Monte Carlo) and has been since 1929.
Truth is, it’s a crazy place to hold a Grand Prix- the narrow street circuit providing few overtaking chances for modern cars. Despite this, the race remains the jewel in the Formula 1 Calendar, and as an event it simply can’t be beaten.
To further strengthen the relationship, TAG Heuer commenced sponsorship of the ACM in 2011, leading to an increased presence of TAG Heuer signage on the track and now in 2012, a series of Limited Edition watches.
