Monaco V4 Next Gen

TAG Heuer’s Monaco V4 Next Gen Rose Gold Ruthenium and Ceramic

 

monaco v4

The just-launched Monaco V4 Next Generation Rose Gold Ruthenium and Ceramic has the latest version of TAG Heuer’s groundbreaking V4 technology. It is also the brand’s most stylish creation in rose gold to date.

 

The double-patented Monaco V4 is the world’s first watch with a high-yield mechanical belt drives and a linear rewinding system. Its audacious design is based on the oversized, square-faced Monaco, first seen on Steve McQueen’s wrist in the 1970 race film Le Mans.

In this new “Next Generation” version, the case is even bigger (41mm instead of 39mm) and made of polished massive rose gold with fine-brushed silicon nitride “ceramic” inserts. The inserts visually lighten the squared shape of the watch, and the newly angled planes of the bevelled crystal give the watch a more fluid and contemporary profile.

Other rose gold components are the hand-applied faceted indexes on the dial, the minute and hour hands, the small second hand at 4 o’clock, the thermo-lacquered crown at 3 o’clock, and the strap’s folding buckle. The strap itself is in ultra-soft, large-scale alligator, with anthracite hand stitching, titanium inserts and a rubberized leather lining.

Visible through the timepiece’s anti-reflective sapphire crystal front and back — the V4’s avant-garde architecture remains unchanged (tungsten ingot linear mass, two pairs of barrels in series, set in parallel and linked by belts), but the finishes have been completely revisited, with a high-resistance black ruthenium coating on the back plate and the Côtes de Genève decorated bridges. The beautiful black juxtaposes superbly with the white “V4” and “TAG Heuer” engravings on the dial, and with the patented transmission and rewind white belts, now in high-contrast, high-tech white polymers exclusively developed for the new timepiece. Only 60 pieces worldwide.

Tweet: With slogans brands convey the Manufacture’s DNA

Be it any brand. Be it at any price. A watch tells the same time whatever dial it holds. However complicated it is? Yes, a branded and widely promoted/ advertised watch gives the wearer the feeling that s/he wears something what others haven’t been able to lay their hands on. When a timepiece becomes a product and acquires its an identity of its own a need arises to give it a personality.

T-I-M-E. Just four words. W-A-T-C-H. Five words. Interestingly, every watch manufacturer sees the word differently and conveys a message which is unique to its brand. We bring the catchphrases–the brands identify with.
