This new version of the iconic Monaco was unveiled during Baselworld. Created with a solid carbon case, an elegant full black dial and aqua blue chronograph counters. Tag heuer’s most iconic timepiece has been reinvented in collaboration with Bamford Watch Department. Presenting the Tag Heuer Monaco Bamford Edition.
Tag Heuer Monaco Bamford Edition
CEO of BWD, George Bamford needs no introduction. He pioneered the customisation of luxury watches by modernising and personalising timepieces which were already very exclusive, giving them a recognisable identity with his own ultra-modern, futuristic style.
Back in 2017, customers and fans of the Swiss brand were offered the opportunity to customise their favourite model so this is not the first collaboration with Bamford. Following the earlier success, TAG Heuer invited George Bamford to help with the design of this new series of the Monaco, which exclusively carries the Bamford name.
George Bamford has left his mark on the legendary TAG Heuer Monaco. As one would expect, this new version still features the hallmarks of this model: the square 39-mm case and the crown positioned on the left. But now it also boasts a case made from incredibly lightweight and highly resistant carbon which is an ideal material for watchmakers.
Bamford’s signature style is evident in the chronograph counters highlighted with luminous marks on the indices and the date window, which are a magnificent aqua blue – Bamford Watch Department’s favourite shade of blue. This detail gives the timepiece a resolutely modern look which is right on-trend. The dial and the case-back are engraved with “Monaco Bamford” as a reminder of the partners in this collaboration. The whole piece is set off perfectly with an exquisite black alligator leather strap.
