Monaco V4 Phantom / TAG Heuer


The TAG Heuer Monaco V4 Phantom, with full black carbon composite case (41mm x 41mm) and just about everything else, joins prior V4 models in platinum, rose gold, and titanium.

The carbon case is what TAG calls CMC Carbon Matrix Composite and some bridges (7, to be exact) are constructed of the material as well.

The rest of the components — hands, dial, et al — are given a titanium carbide coating to complete the phantom look. TAG Heuer Research & Development director Guy Semon indicates that the first run of the Monaco V4 Phantom will 50 pieces, priced at 45,000 Swiss Francs apiece. Ref WAW2091.FC6369 — via Perpétuelle
