First Look: TAG Heuer Singapore Grand Prix Edition Monaco Calibre 12 (Ref. CAW2117)

TAG Heuer’s tradition of issuing Limited Edition watches for the Singapore Grand Prix continues in 2010.

The Singapore GP edition was a Grand Carrera in 2008 and a Carrera Day/ Date Carbon Fiber in 2009– and this year? A Monaco and a Lady F1.

The Monaco (Ref. CAW2117) is based on the Calibre 12″Black McQueen“, but with Green hands and markings in place of the usual red. The watch comes with both a black leather strap (with Green stitching) and a rubber strap .

These great photos below come from PuristSPro– a first-rate website that is well worth visiting for photos and information of new watches- usually at the “haute horology” end of things.

The second Singapore LE watch is a Lady F1, which misses out on the Green highlights, but instead combines a black ceramic bracelet and black diamonds for a look that we’ll call “Stealth Bling”. While the ladies range of watches in not one that I am overly familiar with, I quite like the new Lady F1 series.

The Monaco is a Limited Edition of 100 watches, while there will be 250 Lady F1’s made.

I like the fact that TAG Heuer is creating a unique look for their Singapore specials- although like last year I’m not 100% sold on the black/ green combination. But, if you’ve got the 2008 and 2009 watches, then its time to try to get hold of the first ever green Monaco.
