Tag Heuer Monaco V4
Turbocharged. The Tag Heuer Monaco V4
Tag Heuer have done it… they have finally improved the original Monaco! It has taken many years and many ugly re-designs, but the V4 delivers the goods.
Keeping the iconic rectangular shape and completely redesigning the dial, was a big gamble by Tag Heuer, however, the minimalistic skeletal aesthetic was a stroke of genius.
At the heart of the Monaco V4 is the in-house produced ‘Calibre V’ mechanism. The Calibre V movement was inspired by high performance motor engines, and uses a belt-driven transmission instead of cogs and wheels to power the movement.
The Tag Heuer Monaco V4 was produced in a limited batch, with only 150 pieces being made.
The V4’s good looks are likely to attract a lot of interest, however, the price tag is most definitely going to repel many with an asking price of US$80,000.
So, if you have plenty of cash to splash and are a watch aficionado, this timepiece just might be your cup of tea.
