MAKING ITS MARK
A collection based not on a particular model but on a kind of material: this is the idea behind models made from carbon in a very contemporary style.
Following a collaboration with Bamford, a company specialised in made-to-measure casing for timepieces, TAG Heuer launched the Monaco watch made from highly attractive carbon. The brand decided to take the idea further and has unveiled three versions of the Aquaracer with a 41mm-wide case machined in titanium and with black PVD coating. The aim? To design a new collection made from a single material: carbon! To guarantee a striking first impression, the black and grey patterns from the printed carbon dial are set off with touches of pink gold, yellow and blue. The combinations provide the timepieces with an urban identity, without taking away their characteristic features as diver’s watches. The watches are watertight down to 300m, come with a screwed titanium back, a unidirectional revolving bezel made of carbon and steel, and optimal display of the time information.
The models come with a nylon strap with black, yellow or blue topstitching, and a folding clasp with an extension for diving. They will be exclusively available in TAG Heuer stores and from the brand’s website.
