TAG Heuer Monaco V4 Titanium watch captures the beauty and artistry of watchmaking. TAG Heuer re-captured another version of it Monaco V4 timepiece in a titanium presentation.
TAG Heuer has made Monaco V4 Titanium not only visually stunning but incorporated elements of titanium, ruthenium and ceramic to enhance its charming visual factor. Visible on the dial of watch is a high resistant black ruthenium coating on the back plate and the Côtes de Genève decorated bridges gives it more of a visually textural composition.
Ceramic runs along the sides of the watch breaking up the watch’s massive case. Titanium, Grade 5, is generously used in the construction of the case, hour and minute markers, the small second hand at 4 o’clock, the thermo-lacquered crown at 3 o’clock, and the strap’s folding buckle. The strap is ultra-soft alligator leather with anthracite hand stitching and a rubberized leather lining.
These combined elements add visual dimension to the Monaco V4 Titanium watch giving it a serene elegance that is not too overstated. Collectors of the original platinum or rose gold versions of Monaco V4 may become enticed by its newer titanium version.
The Monaco V4 houses the same movement as it platinum and Rose Gold predecessors. The movement is visible through the watch’s anti-reflective sapphire crystal, both front and back. Unchanged is its tungsten ingot linear mass, two pairs of barrels in series, set in parallel and linked by belts.
Monaco V4 Titanium showcases with a 41 mm diameter case made of titanium Grade 5 made with fine-brushed silicon nitride (ceramic) inserts. The inserts help visually lighten the square shape of the watch, that and the newly angled contours of the beveled crystal allows the watch to present with a modern-day silhouette.
TAG Heuer’s Research and Development team employed the same techniques used in the design, prototyping and production of the Monaco V4 collection as those used to develop complex aerospace technology. Marrying disciplines from automotive and IT industries, chemistry, climatology, applied mathematics, computer engineering and micro-mechanical sciences TAG Heuer developed its own proprietary software as well as pioneered its own 3D modeling and digital synthesis processes.
These processes were instrumental in the development and production of the Monaco V4 Titanium and it is reflected in its visual composition and presentation. The Monaco V4 is a limited edition timepiece of 200 pieces worldwide. TAG Heuer Monaco V4 collection continues to evolve capturing the brand’s capabilities and diverse vision in the world of haute horology.
