TAG Heuer Monaco Twenty Four Racing Calibre 36

TAG Heuer is set to release a series of special edition Monaco models in 2011, the first of which you see here today: the TAG Heuer Monaco Twenty Four Racing (Ref. CAL5112).  This square cased watch sports silver and orange dial-tones, with a Calibre 36 automatic mechanical movement that is suspended between four shock-absorbing arms (you can see one in each corner of the case) for added shock absorption and visual appeal.  The TAG Heuer Monaco Twenty Four Racing is the first addition to the Monaco Twenty Four series since the striped Monaco Gulf which debuted in 2009.  As on the Monaco Gulf, the oversized number “24” at 12 o’clock pays tribute to the LeMans, most famous endurance race in the world.  The new TAG Heuer Monaco 24 Racing watch price is near $15,000 and will be sold through TAG Heuer boutiques.  Via: Calibre 11, which also has some good “live looks” if you are interested.

    I love all the new special edition racing watches hitting the market – but I don’t think I could bring myself to pay 15k for a TAG!

      Yea, I agree that many of these new TAG’s are significantly more than the price range I mentally associate with the brand. That said, the watches look great and thus I am warming up to the idea!

    I like the concept and it is tempting – no doubt.
    Price is an issue though – I think that I would rather spend that amount of money on the AP ROO Diver, which has a gold counterweight and an in-house movement. I wonder what precious metals have been used on the Monaco 24. I guess the fact that the movement is based on the Zenith El Primero is something to consider with regards to the price?

      I think you nailed it GoJu– the value proposition really is tough for this watch — I agree that a lot more watch can be had for $15k!
