Rare TAG Heuer Monaco limited editions
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. Its 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.
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.
