TAG Heuer Monaco 2001 Limited Edition

TAG Heuer have released several limited edition Monaco models, including the re-edition variants detailed in a previous post. You have probably also seen the three Gulf/ Vintage limited editions which TAG have released over the last couple of years. But have you ever seen one of these?

This is a very rare limited edition of 200 watches issued by the famous French watch boutique Ferret in the Cote d’Azur. The watch is essentially a Silver-dial version of the second TAG Heuer Monaco re-edition (Ref. CS2111) and has the reference CS2113, as you can see below.

It’s hard to see from the photo, but the watch has “2001” in red numerals just under the Heuer logo. TAG did release a silver dial Monaco model ref. CW2112, but that had “TAG Heuer” on the dial- this is the only Silver Monaco that has just “Heuer” on the dial.

These have been rarely seen on the second-hand market- so if you do see one, its not a fake and is certainly very collectible.

Another rare TAG Heuer Monaco

TAG also released a limited run of 120 Monaco watches for the 1999 F1 Monaco Grand Prix. Based on the CS2111 model, the watch has chequered racing flags near the sub-dials as well as the words “Grand Prix Monaco 1999”. There are a couple of these for sale at the moment at a cost of well over €10,000Apparently the watches were never sold, but were given out by the race promoters to Bernie and the F1 teams.

    Big prices for GP monacos but have yet to see one sell at that level. Im putting a Heuer price guide for 60/70s watches and may well add a sheet for re editions…

  • Nice! I have never seen these limited Monacos before. I liked both.

    Cheers

    Jarl and Richard- agree that the Grand Prix Monaco is a very expensive variant- asking prices are well north of 10,000 Euros- but I also agree with Richard that asking price doesn't mean that they're selling at that range. For me, the Grand Prix edition is a nice variant- and I might pay a premium of 20%- but no more.

    I think that the Ferret Monaco is a more unique piece. I like the silver dial Monaco re-edition, and this is the only one without the Tag logo. I might pay a premium of 50% for one of these.

    Rich, good work on the price guide. You should speak with Jeff Stein who is in the process of updating the guide at http://www.onthedash.com

    Jeff may not want to post a Tag re-edition price guide, so I'd be happy to host it here and give you my input as well.

    Cheers

    Dear David, very nice indeed and thanks for sharing: I never heard or saw these before either and (wrongly) would have thought of them as fakes. I am not into Monacos (not 'cool' enought to wear a square watch!) but I like anyway to keep up with the actual offering all round.

    Cheers.

    Have had a discussion, would be happy to chat about that at some point soon, im aboutv4 weeks away from completing a 69-mid 80s guide and think re editions would be useful as the only collectable modern Tags. Ive bought and sold about 20 in the past 6 months and they do vary a fair amount in any given day…!
    Thats the beauty of averages though
    Cheers

    Hello,

    I own a monaco 2001 by Ferret. I bought it in Nice during the grand prix of Monaco. There are 200 ex. build of it, I bought nr. 27, my age at that time. I bought it with a red strap, know its has a black strap. What is the price of it nowedays?

    Oliver

    Hi Olivier, very hard to price something like this…I think that I've only seen one or two for sale. Should be at a premium to the regular Monaco, but not a big premium…maybe 20-30%

    Of course, if you find someone who desperately wants one, then you'll get a lot more than this!

    Enjoy your watch- a very rare one.

    David

    Hi Oliver , So we are 3 to have a 2001 ferret edition , what was the price new ? (you buy it new in Nice in 2001 ?).

    I saw one on the net by chance , i bought it 2 mn later …

  • Hi David …

    I have an original/mint "Monaco GP 1999 – Limited Edition" (#97/120) and since photos of the piece are so rare, I placed a few on my FB page.

    Not sure how to post them within this comment box, but more than happy to do so in you send me instruction via eMail.

    Photos of my piece: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=232094&amp;…

    Enjoy … and I welcome your comments.

    BTW … Anyone have a feel for the latest offered prices for this piece … I am a big watch collector and I have to admit that is has been extremely rare to see one of these on the auction bloc !

    Cheers,

    Reza

    Not sure why the link does not work … But let me try one more time before sending you the pics directly.

    Thanks,

    The last Monaco 1999 that i saw on sale : 6200€ !! crazy .

    Anyone know the new prices of this models (ferret and GPM 1999)?

  • I have never seen one on sale … in fact, apart from mine, I have never seen another one! … so the price you quote is certainly news to me … but would be interested in finding out what they're worth these days.

    I sent David some pics of the one I have …. he should have them posted soon … either under this thread or a under a new post.

    Stay tuned :)

  • philou
