TAG Heuer has taken pole position in the current trend for green dials with a new limited edition release of its classic Monaco to mark this year’s Grand Prix de Monaco Historique race.

If the richness of the sunray dial’s emerald tone wasn’t enough already, TAG Heuer has added further depth with black sub dials and a gradient effect that sees the dial get darker towards its outside edge.

The green theme continues on the Calibre Heuer 02 automatic movement, with its column wheel and text on the winding rotor picked out in a matching verdant shade, all of which is visible through the watch’s sapphire crystal caseback.

The biannual Grand Prix de Monaco Historique gets underway today with more than 200 classic Grand Prix cars racing through the streets of Monaco over the next three days. TAG Heuer, with its historic association with motorsports, sponsors the event as well as the being the official watch of the Formula One Monaco Grand Prix and the official watch partner of the Monaco Top Cars Collection museum. TAG Heuer’s Monaco has been associated with motorsport since it appeared on the wrist of Steve McQueen in the 1971 film, Le Mans.

Just 500 pieces of the 39mm stainless steel Monaco Green Dial Limited Edition are being made and are available now via select TAG Heuer stores, priced $6,650 USD.
