Up Close: TAG Heuer Monaco Porsche Club of America 55th Anniversary Edition (Ref. CAW2118)

TAG Heuer has released a special edition Monaco made for the Porsche Club of America (PCA). There are 55 watches made to commemorate the 55th anniversary of the Porsche Club of America.

The PCA Monaco is based on the black Calibre 12 Monaco and uses a modified version of the leather strap found on the 40th anniversary Monaco, but this time with red stitching and a red inner-coating.

The dial has a single broad red stripe with two smaller white stripes either side. In addition, there are red highlights used on the right-hand sub-dial, along with a single red sub-dial hand. Finishing off the design is the black “55” in a white circle.

The caseback has a sapphire crystal with a large (too large?) PCA logo across the back in red.

There aren’t many of these watches around, but we did see this one NOS for sale from seller logan2z on the Watchuseek forum in 2015.

Expect the PCA Monaco to sell out fast, and is priced at US$5,500. It’s a great looking watch and a cool variation on the usual striped-dial theme that we see from the Gulf Monaco series.
