TAG Heuer Monaco V4 Titanium, Ruthenium and Ceramic
September 29, 2011
Introducing the Monaco V4 Next Generation Titanium, Ruthenium and Ceramic, the most high-tech Monaco to date. The TAG Heuer Monaco V4 Next Generation comes in a 41 mm diameter case made of Grade 5 titanium, with fine-brushed silicon nitride ceramic inserts. Other titanium components include hand-applied faceted indexes on the dial, minutes and hour hands, small seconds hand (at 4 o'clock), the crown and the strap's folding buckle.
The V4's high-tech movement is mechanically the same as the original, but the finishes have been completely reworked. A high-resistance black ruthenium coating was used on the base plate and the Côtes de Genève decorated bridges. The black finish contrasts with the white "V4" and TAG Heuer" engravings on the dial, as well as the patented transmission and white rewind belts (made of high-tech white polymers exclusively developed for this timepiece).
The strap is in ultra-soft, large-scale alligator, with anthracite hand stitching and a rubberized leather lining. Limited to 200 pieces worldwide.
The Monaco V4, TAG Heuer's flagship, continues to act as a halo of what the brand is capable of achieving in the world of horology. Retail is $72,300.
