Baselworld 2015 The annual fair took place from March 19th until March 26th, 2015.

TAG Heuer Monaco V4 Phantom

The new Monaco V4 Phantom's case as well as the seven bridges of its legendary movement are entirely made from carbon fibre.

The new feature of the Monaco V4 Phantom 2015 version is found on the case, which is made from CMC (Carbon Matrix Composite) and the 7 bridges of its movement, also in CMC. A specific technique was used to create them in "directed carbon", which means that the carbon fibres are placed in a certain direction in the mould, then micro-blasted, giving them a regular and particularly elegant "matt black vertical brushed" appearance. The entire dial is composed of shades of dark grey and black. For example, the hands are faceted and satin-finished, with a Titanium Carbide Coating and anthracite grey SuperLuminova™. Only the jewels reveal discreet little touches of red.

TAG Heuer - Monaco V4 Phantom

The first Monaco V4 was unveiled eleven years ago. The name V4 refers to the V-shaped main plate which carries the four barrels mounted in two adjacent pairs on ball bearings. Angled at +/-13°, they are reminiscent of the cylinders in a Formula 1 engine. With its belt transmission and linear weight, which moves on a straight rail (patented) rather than the usual rotational movement, the Monaco V4 turns the fundamental principles of horological mechanics on their head.
