Tag Heuer Monaco Purple Dial Limited Edition

The TAG Heuer Monaco family now welcomes a new limited-edition timepiece with a striking purple dial.

The 39-mm square case in fine-brushed and polished steel houses an elegantly imagined dial in a rich purple color.

The dial gradient, from lighter purple in the center to darker purple at the edge, adds depth and sophistication to the piece, while the rhodium-plated indexes and hands with white Super-LumiNova® and the two black opalin sub-counters subtly enhance the unexpected smoky design.

Seasoned watch collectors will immediately notice a subtle parallel with the very early Heuer Monaco reference 1113B, the Chronomatic version launched at the beginning of 1969, as well as the transitional series – before what is known as the “McQueen” – and the reference 1533 Calibre 15.

These pieces used a different dial finish with a metallic blue paint over the brass plate. Over time, the dials have shown a tendency to patinate from blue to a similar dégradé purple color, sometimes slightly faded in the center and darker around the edges.

This new model houses TAG Heuer’s in-house chronograph movement, Calibre Heuer 02. Visible through the sapphire crystal case back, it features a customized oscillating weight, column wheel, and engravings, with purple details. Offering an outstanding timekeeping performance, this self-winding calibre has a power reserve of 80 hours. The screw-down case back is engraved with the piece’s limited edition number of XXX/500.

The black alligator strap is also lined with purple on the inside. Available from July 2022, the chronograph will be sold exclusively in TAG Heuer boutiques.
