Tag Heuer - Monaco V4 Phantom

| No comment
First introduced by Tag Heuer in 2004, the first Monaco V4 was received with great excitement by watch enthusiasts and was awarded with several prizes. The name V4 refers to the V-shaped main plate which carries the four barrels mounted in two adjacent pairs on ball bearings. Angled at +/-13°, they are reminiscent of the cylinders in a Formula 1 engine.

It was the first watch equipped with a microscopic toothed micro-belt transmission (the size of a hair, no wider than 0.07 mm) with a linear weight moving on a straight rail (patented) rather than the usual rotational movement.

Presented at Baselworld 2015, the latest interpretation of the Monaco V4 is called Phantom because is totally black, almost stealthy. The 41 x 41 mm iconic case is entirely made from carbon fibre (CMC Carbon Matrix Composite), just like the 7 bridges of the movement.



To obtain the regular matt black vertical brushed finish, the carbon fibres are organised as on a isotropic matrix, i.e. are positioned in a specific direction in the mould. The reinforced fabric, which is only 0.007mm thick, is structured to build the components into 3D form, then heated and compacted to transform by a means of a chemical reaction the soft, flexible layers into a super rigid and ultra-light form.

The entire dial is composed of shades of dark grey. Even the hands are faceted and satin-finished with a Titanium Carbide Coating and anthracite grey Super-LumiNova treatment.

Only the red of the jewels (a total of 48 stones in the movement) breaks the dark tones of the dial.


Beating at a frequency of 4 Hz (28,800 vibrations per hour), the movement guarantees a power reserve of 42 hours.

The new Tag Heuer Monaco V4 Phantom (ref. WAW2091.FC6369) will be initially produced in 50 examples with a retail price of Swiss Francs 45,000. tagheuer.com
