The TAG Heuer Monaco
From its introduction in 1969, the TAG Heuer Monaco chronograph has challenged traditional watchmaking with its fearless innovation. When virtually all chronographs were round, the Heuer Monaco was square, and the first to be housed in a waterproof case.
In May 2022, the innovative watch brand introduced a new special edition of the TAG Heuer Monaco chronograph to celebrate its illustrious past, enduring bond to motor racing and the legendary Monaco F1 Grand Prix. The new timepiece is a dramatic rendition inspired by a legendary Heuer Monaco of the 1970s constructed of DLC-coated titanium. Demonstrating the bold innovation of the TAG Heuer Monaco, this exclusive chronograph captures the mystique of one of the brand’s most iconic collections.
“I admire the fearlessness expressed by the TAG Heuer Monaco and am fascinated by its legend. ’Squaring the circle’ and moving the crown to the left had made it so special at that time. Today, the new editions inherit this unique spirit and continue reinventing the avant-garde,” said Cai XuKun.
With a strong and authentic foundation of shared values and character, Cai XuKun and TAG Heuer open a new chapter for the brand in China together. This thrilling new partnership kicks off with a bold creative campaign and will soon come to life in many more ambitious projects.
