TAG HEUER PARTICIPATES IN ONLY WATCH AUCTION WITH A UNIQUE MONACO SPLITSECONDS CHRONOGRAPH
Led by the visionary Carole Kasapi, TAG Heuer’s Movements Director and an industry legend, at the heart of this unique TAG Heuer Monaco Split-Seconds Chronograph lies a mechanical split-seconds chronograph movement, the newly launched TH81-00.
The masterpiece combines Swiss watchmaking artistry with cutting-edge technology. This mechanical rattrapante movement is a highly sophisticated and intricate mechanism that adds an additional layer of functionality to a chronograph watch.The king of complications, it is capable of measuring two separate time intervals.
Working with the Artime artisans, the signature graté damier finish was applied to key parts of the movement, complimented by black polishing, anglage, perlage, and brushed finishing. In total more than 12 hours of true savoir-faire was required for such a beautiful finish.
Enhancing the movement is a stunning oscillating weight fashioned in the shape of the iconic TAG Heuer shield. This exquisite detail is adorned with the official colors of Only Watch for 2023—a captivating rainbow of reds, blues, and yellow hues, hand painted by the maestro of the discipline André Martinez.
We are extremely honored to be part of the esteemed Only Watch once again, supporting the crucial research for Duchenne muscular dystrophy and are grateful to Luc Pettavino and his team for allowing us this wonderful platform to create watches without limits.Frédéric Arnault, CEO of TAG Heuer
