The larger (39mm) case gives the tag heuer monaco calibre 12 gulf limited edition replica watch a more contemporary look, while the orange and blue meteor dial design, inspired by the Porsche Gulf 917K driven by Steve McQueen in 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.
To celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the tag heuer monaco calibre 12 replica, 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 – is slated for worldwide launch 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.
After its scene-stealing debut on tag heuer monaco replica in Le Mans, the TAG Heuer Monaco, the square-cased icon of sporting glamour that captured the spirit of an era and changed forever the face of luxury Swiss watchmaking, remains as cool and cutting-edge as ever
