At the 77th Monaco Grand Prix, the sponsor of the TAG Heuer event will present the new limited edition reference CAW211V.FC6466 (only 169 pieces) TAG Heuer Monaco 1969-1979 as part of the 50th anniversary celebration of the collection Monaco watches. Formula 1 races continue to be the replica watches Tag Heuer pinnacle of automotive engineering and performance - a racing series that TAG Heuer (among other watch brands) has a long history with. This limited edition watch is not a radical overhaul of the winning platform of Monaco watches, but presents a new aesthetic style that TAG Heuer says is directly inspired by the colors, shapes and style that many watches wore during the 1970s. p>
According to TAG Heuer, a total of five new Munich watches will be launched for the 50th anniversary of the collection in 2019. In Monaco during the 2019 Monaco Grand Prix, aBlogtoWatch will be on the scene for what should be a glamorous celebration of the iconic square sports watch (one of the only ones around which it is pleasant to watch, I might add) and will be able to share live images of this and perhaps other new limited edition TAG Heuer Monaco watches.
After wearing various versions of the TAG Heuer Monaco in the past (a review of BlogtoWatch TAG Heuer Monaco Caliber 12 here), I can say that, in my opinion, what makes the collection and the iconic case a winning formula is the "still round square" "design. More recently, aBlogtoWatch has revised a version similar to this watch TAG Heuer Monaco of 1969-1979 with the movement Caliber 11. The movement of the automatic chronograph Caliber 11 positions the buttons of the crown and the chronograph in the way originally intended by TAG Heuer when the collection was launched in 1969. This positions the chronograph crown and buttons on the left side of the case.
The orientation of the hour indices, the design of the hands and dials and the overall presence of this limited edition Munich 1969-1979 watch are the same as in the "original style" but with a new range of replica watches colors that will surely be polarizing and intentionally niche. TAG Heuer calls the color of the "green" dial with Côtes de Genève finish. " It is a sort of metallic olive green with vertical polishing stripes similar to those found on the surfaces of many Swiss-made watch movements. The colors of the earth's tone are reminiscent of the popular color palettes of the 1970s styles, which are returning in various forms. I like how TAG Heuer understands that this particular colorway in Monaco is a niche for design and has produced it as an exclusive set of very few pieces in the TAG Heuer limited edition number scheme.
