To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Monaco Collection, TAGHeuer launched a very limited 1970s Monaco series 1969-1979 watch (model: CAW211V.FC6466) a few hours before the F1 Monaco Grand Prix. This is also the first of five limited edition watches expected to be released this year.
This limited edition of 169 pieces features a textured green Geneva dial with brown / amber embellishment and two black sunburst dials (3 and 9 o’clock). The color scheme is very charming, with a serious balance of serious elements and witty fun. The retro charm of this watch is reminiscent of the good times of motorsport.
In terms of design, many details of the new watch are exactly the same as the CAW211P, including a 39mm fine-brushed and polished stainless steel case, a crown at 9 o’clock, two buttons on the right hand side, and a date window at 6 o’clock , Scoreboard and small seconds at 9 and 3 o’clock, polished horizontal indexes, rhodium-plated hands, and five-minute markers. TAGHeuer follows the classic ‘Heuer’ logo, exuding a strong retro flavor.
This 1970s-style watch has a Calibre11 self-winding chronograph movement that oscillates 28,800 times / hour (4 Hz) and provides a 40-hour power reserve. The stainless steel screw-in case back is engraved with the original ‘MonacoHeuer’ logo, along with ‘1969-1979 Special Edition’ (1969-1979 special edition) and ‘Oneof169’ (unique limited number).
The watch comes with a brown calfskin strap and a polished stainless steel folding clasp. It is reported that the TAGHeuer Monaco series 1969-1979 limited edition watch CAW211V.FC6466 sells for 6,550 US dollars, equivalent to about 45,000 yuan. (Photo / text watch home Xu Chaoyang)
