TAG Heuer Monaco Gulf Special Edition 50th Anniversary Automatic 39mm Watch

Description

To honour a historical motor racing partnership, TAG Heuer have released this special edition version of their iconic Monaco watch. In Gulf blue and orange, the TAG Heuer Monaco Gulf 50th Anniversary pays homage to the watchmaker's rich heritage, their association with Gulf, and connection to the legend Steve McQueen. For a brand with such impressive motor racing genes, this special edition TAG Heuer Monaco watch is the epitome of their heritage. Like TAG Heuer, Gulf Oil, a major global oil company prominent for much of the mid 20th century, were synonymous for their association with auto racing. Their racing colours, pale blue and orange, became renowned after appearing in the 1971 Steve McQueen 'Le Mans', in which McQueen's character Michael Delaney drives for the Gulf team. In the film, he famously wears a TAG Heuer Monaco wristwatch and from this point on the connection between TAG Heuer, Gulf, and the late Steve McQueen was immortalised in history. Now, 50 years since the release of the first Monaco watch, TAG Heuer have released this special edition model to celebrate this legendary relationship. This edition retains the styling of the original watch; the left-hand drive crown is offset by two block pushers, the square dial features two square subdials for timing seconds and minutes, and the case is affixed to a leather strap. The first of the homages to Gulf are the blue and orange racing stripes across the blue sunray brushed dial. Accompanying these decals is the subtle 'Gulf' logo seated just above the 6 o'clock date aperture. The perforated leather strap is a darker navy blue, with intricate orange stitching and alsavel orange lining. Turn the watch over and the automatic Calibre 11 movement is visible through the circular crystal caseback. Beating to a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, this ensures your races are timed with ultimate precision. A collector's piece worthy of the King of Cool himself, the TAG Heuer Monaco Gulf is a striking homage to racing culture for any true motor racing fan.
