Yesterday, we presented the new norm, current, exemplary Monaco watch, presently furnished with in-house type Heuer 02 supplanting the currently ceased blue-dial Monaco Caliber 12… The finish of a period. Is it, truly? All things considered, before for all time turning the page on the Caliber 12, TAG Heuer has an exceptional shock, with another restricted edition… Meet the TAG Heuer Monaco Caliber 12 Final Edition.
As we clarified yesterday, there’s another exemplary TAG Heuer Monaco in lieu of the Caliber 12 model. To make things understood, TAG is stopping one reference just, the more present day, marginally more exquisite and more customary rendition of the Monaco. This implies the blue dial rendition with a sunray-brushed completion, spiral applied lists and inside the case, an ETA/Sellita measured chronograph development with the crown traditionally situated at 3 o’clock. This model, the reference CAW2111, is currently out of the assortment. Then again, don’t stress over the vintage-propelled Caliber 11 watch, with matte blue dial, flat applied records and crown at 9 o’clock. This one is still produced.
So, to bid farewell to the Monaco Caliber 12, preceding the new Monaco Heuer 02 hits the stores, the brand divulges another restricted edition watch named “Monaco Calibre 12 Final Edition”. Don’t expect a lot of development compared to the standard Caliber 12 watch however. This adaptation is just about an alternate dial… yet a decent one!
If you know your Heuer and TAG Heuer history, a dark dial Monaco ought to be no more interesting to you… Think of reference 1133B, the mid 1970s model with Caliber 11; it included a brushed dim dial with dark sub-counters. Furthermore, more as of late, there’s reference CAW211B, a 2010 watch dependent on the blue Steve McQueen with current Caliber 11. Here once more, a daintily brushed dim dial (not all that articulated however) and dark sub-counters.
Well, blend these components and here you have the new Monaco Caliber 12 Final Edition.
The dial of this new restricted edition is ruthenium hued (an uncommon metal having a place with the platinum gathering, with a dim dark tone) and has the mark vertically brushed enhancement. Additionally, the sub-dials have the customary dark opaline completion. The hands and spiral applied records are rhodium-plated and the chronograph hand is lacquered in red – these subtleties moderately devoted to the vintage 1133B and bringing about a lovely design.
For the rest, no sensational advancements on this TAG Heuer Monaco Caliber 12 Final Edition, which retains all the details of past editions, which means a 39mm x 39mm steel case, chamfered sapphire, 100m water-opposition, pushers and crown at 3 o’clock, Caliber 12 running inside – fundamentally, a Sellita-delivered 2894-2 – and a dark crocodile tie with collapsing clasp.
