There were two Monaco versions on show at Baselworld 1969-the 1133B along with the 1133G. The ‘B’ was the blue dial, the ‘G’ for grey, like these re-editions. The ’33’ in the model variety can also be observed to the case back with the authentic, and is a reference to ‘Tool 033′, the exceptional device needed to take away the motion through the observe. The ’11’ from the model number was the title provided to your new movement beating inside-the Calibre eleven.
1st, the dial is no longer black like the traditional version or even silver like the Jack Heuer Edition, but a beautiful cream color dial that I have under no circumstances noticed on a TAG Heuer. The color and texture are milky white, and really remind me of one thing like you’d find on a 6239 Daytona that has a serial number inside the 9xx,xxx range. You know the watches, they appear like this. The lume plots on this dial and on these hands are again darker than what we’ve viewed on other Autavias, and they complement well.
Alec Andon, a.k.a. Alec Monopoly, is famous for graffiti on New York’s streets. In 2008 he made headlines with his work mocking the world of finance and depicting people from pop culture. His playground has due to the fact spread to other international cities whose walls bear his designs. The world-renowned artist always has his face covered and is now the TAG Heuer “Art Provocateur” ambassador. The very first limited edition view (200 available) from this collaboration has the features of a Formula 1 model. The self-portrait about the dial bears the artist’s signature iconography. The top hatted Monopoly Man has a scarf around his face to remain anonymous, just like the artist.
