The TAG Heuer Monaco is one of TAG Heuer’s most beloved timepieces. Reinterpreted with Gulf, our partner since 2007, to create an even more sophisticated design. The model with the Caliber Heuer 02 in-house movement is one of them.
The Gulf brand has become an icon in the world of motor racing, adorning sponsor teams with vibrant blue and vivid orange livery. During the golden age of car racing in the 1960s and 1970s, Heuer, Gulf, Porsche, Jo Siffert and Steve McQueen converged on the circuit for a legendary partnership.
Introduced in 2022, the TAG Heuer Monaco Gulf Special Edition features a fine 39mm stainless steel case with a satin and polished finish. Gulf’s signature colors of dark blue, turquoise and orange are used, but this time it’s a more contemporary color combination. These three colors are also used for the minute sub-counter at 3 o’clock, and the Gulf logo on the dial is completely white. Furthermore, the index at 12 o’clock features a polished and rhodium-plated number “60”, a tribute to the racing numbers of the Porsche Gulf racing cars. The caseback of the TAG Heuer Monaco Caliber Heuer 02 Gulf Special Edition has been specially engraved by TAG Heuer designers in a color that matches the rotor and column wheel to match the orange hue of the Gulf.

To complete the sporty and sophisticated design of this timepiece, the strap is made of perforated blue calf leather with orange lining. The strap has standard stitching, but was created specifically for the TAG Heuer Monaco Caliber Heuer 02 Gulf Special Edition. The design of the differently sized punch holes echoes the design of the straps worn on Heuer Monaco watches in the 1970s, bringing a touch of the past to this special edition.
