TAG Heuer Monaco V4 Phantom

By  |  0 Comments

Perhaps you like the iconic TAG Heuer Monaco. And perhaps your name is Batman. And if so I must say that the V4 Phantom goes great with your Lamborghini Aventador. But maybe you are just a regular guy, and if that is the case then this stealth version of the Monaco is still a great choice.

The V4 was unveiled eleven years ago in 2004 at BaselWorld and name V4 is because of the V-shaped main place. This new version is made out of CMC (Carbon Matrix Composite) which isn’t your regular carbon because the carbon fibres are place in a certain direction in the mould and after that micro-blasted to give it the very unique look of matt black.

It’s a really unique looking watch and the inside is just as revolutionary. The four barrels mounted at the V-shaped main plate is mounted in two adjacent pairs on ball bearings. They are angled at +/-13° which is inspired by the engine in a Formula 1 car. What sets the Monaco V4 apart is that the belt transmission and linear weight moves on a straight rail instead of the usual rotational movement, something TAG Heuer of course have patented. Every detail counts and the satin-finished hands have titanium carbide coating and is topped of with grey SuperLuminova for great visibility in the dark.

This Monaco V4 Phantom is a great tribute to the heritage of TAG Heuer and I’m sure that Steve McQueen would have loved to wear this one just as much as the original one he wore. Read more about the Monaco by clicking here.
