TAG Heuer Monaco Calibre 12 Chronograph Gulf Limited Edition
To celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Steve McQueen’s trendsetting Heuer Monaco, and to pay tribute to TAG Heuer’s new partnership with Gulf, a new limited edition version of the vintage chronograph – with for the first time an elegant, anti-reflective sapphire crystal front and back – was released in September 2009.
The seriously upgraded version houses the TAG Heuer Calibre 12 Automatic Chronograph Movement, a high-performance all-Swiss engine based on the Dubois Depraz 2008.
The larger (39mm) case gives the watch a more contemporary look, while the orange and blue meteor dial design, inspired by the Porsche Gulf 917K driven by Steve McQueen in the movie Le Mans, expresses its professional racing heritage. Vintage “Gulf” logo and date window at 6 o’clock, small second at 3 and chronograph minute at 9, faceted and a stylish grey alligator strap with grey stitching – the 5,000-pieces edition is a racing purist’s dream machine.
