21 Sep. TAG HEUER MONACO MIKROGRAPH
150 years of watchmaking know-how meet avant-garde design and visionary art to benefit charity during Only Watch auction.
Watch collectors around the world will be captivated by this technical revolution of the Mikrograph, the fastest chronograph movement on the market, beating at 360 000 beats per hour, a masterpiece of Haute Horlogerie encased in the iconic square shape of the Monaco that remains, over four decades after its scene-stealing debut on the wrist of Steve McQueen in the movie Le Mans, as cool and cutting-edge as ever.
The fusion of TAG Heuer’s two most daring inventions in terms of movement and design will be auctioned on September 23, 2011 to benefit Duchenne muscular dystrophy research under the High Patronage of His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco.
For a very special watch, a very special watch box. Internationally acclaimed South African artist Paul du Toit has personally committed to create a unique piece of art to host the Monaco Mikrograph. The watch box art will be conceptualized and painted by this celebrated artist.
