TAG Heuer Sponsor of the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique
TAG Heuer partners with the Automobile Club de Monaco (ACM) and the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique and introduces a limited-edition TAG Heuer Monaco timepiece as a tribute to the iconic race.
The appointment of TAG Heuer as the Official Sponsor and Timekeeper of the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique complements its current designation as the Official Watch of the Monaco Grand Prix and the Official Watch Partner of the Monaco Top Cars Collection museum. The 12th edition of the event was scheduled to take place from 8 to 10 May 2020 on the legendary Monaco circuit but was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, over the course of the scheduled 2020 race weekend, TAG Heuer presented a special-edition timepiece as a tribute to this prestigious event and to the Monaco collection.
The biannual Grand Prix de Monaco Historique weekend is one of the highlights of the classic-car racing calendar. More than 200 grand prix cars representing 50 different car makers enter each event. Selected for their historical value and degree of originality, they compete in seven series spanning the periods from the 1930s to the 1970s. Drivers from more than 21 countries took part in the 2018 edition.
TAG Heuer Monaco Grand Prix de Monaco Historique Limited Edition
The elegant and charismatic chronograph designed especially for the occasion features the signature red-and-white colour code that is reminiscent of the sports cars from the thrilling world of motor racing. The small silver historic car logo of the Grand Prix de Monaco Historique at the 1 o’clock position on the crimson brushed dial instantly links this special model to the historic race. This model is produced in a limited edition of 1,000 watches, each of which is engraved with its unique number and the words “One of 1000”. It is presented on a luxurious perforated strap made of fine-grain black leather.
