One-of-a-kind TAG Heuer Monaco Piece d’Art

A work of artistry and watchmaking craftsmanship, the Monaco Piece d’Art is TAG Heuer’s most unique tribute to the iconic Monaco.

As a culmination of the 50th-anniversary celebrations of the Monaco, TAG Heuer has created the one-of-a-kind Monaco Piece d’Art. This restored and decorated version of an original 1969 model of the iconic timepiece (reference number 1133B) will be submitted to Phillips in New York for the Game Changers watch auction, set to take place on 10 December 2019. Proceeds from the auction will be donated to the US charity United Way of New York City.

The most outstanding aspect of this unique timepiece is the decorated movement, now visible through the transparent caseback. The watchmakers disassembled the movement and components and worked on every part of the chronograph module. The most impressive artistry is visible on the bridges; engraved by hand, in a font reminiscent of the style of the 1970s, the words “Cal. eleven” feature on the chronograph bridge for the minute and seconds counter, with “Monaco” appearing on the hour counter bridge.
