Swiss watch manufacturer Tag Heuer has unveiled the Monaco V4 Phantom, a new addition to its 2015 line-up at this year’s Baselworld.
The new 41 mm timepiece features a case and movement – including its 7 bridges – that is entirely made out of carbon fibre. Specifically, CMC (Carbon Matrix Composite). It is finished in matt black.
The dial, which includes shades of both dark grey and black, has faceted and satin-finished hands, with Titanium Carbide Coating and anthracite grey Super-LumiNova coating. That allows them to be read in a variety of lighting conditions, for those unfamiliar.
This leaves only the Monaco V4 Phantom’s 48 jewels to provide any glimmer of colour. They add subtle hints of red.
The Monaco V4 Phantom boasts a total of 268 components and boasts a minimum power reserve of 42 hours. Its runs at a frequency of 4 Hz (28,000 vibrations/h) and has hours, minutes and small seconds functions.
Tag Heuer has confirmed that the Monaco V4 Phantom will be limited to an initial run of only 50 pieces.
The manufacturer, based in Switzerland, had previously announced several additions to its line-up at this year’s event including the Carrera – Calibre Heuer 01. A Special Edition of the piece will also be released to celebrate Cara Delevingne’s role as ambassador.
