Tag Heuer Re-release: TAG Heuer Precious Silverstone Watch

According to what Swiss watchmaker TAG Heuer revealed, it will retail for about $6,500.

Admired and claimed by Heuer fans and watch fans alike, the TAG Heuer Silverstone Wristwatch is getting re-released this month, February 2010, in a limited edition of 1,500 models of each color. The new Silverstones will be released in brown or blue versions, with perforated alligator straps and an updated Caliber 11 movement with a Dubois-Depraz module.

TAG Heuer Silverstone Wristwatch was first introduced in 1974 so as a way of emulating the curvature of the famous English racing track, with a design inspired by the distinctive square case of its predecessor, well known TAG Heuer Monaco Watch. Back in ’74, the Silverstone timepiece featured the Chronomatic Calibre 11, the first automatic self-winding chronograph ever made.

For its re-issue, Silverstone is now powered by an updated version of the Calibre 11 with Dubois-Depraz module. In order to celebrate TAG Heuer‘s history, it houses the brand’s original Heuer logo, which is flanked on the dial by two silver counters at 3 and 9 o’clock. Stainless steel pushbuttons at 2 and 4 o’clock, a hand-applied date window at 6 o’clock and curved, sapphire crystal with double anti-reflective treatment complete the watch’s look.

tag-heuer-monaco-v4-limited-edition-watch(Tag Heuer Monaco V4 Limited Edition Watch)

.

Limited edition of just 150 watches the Monaco V4. It is the only Tag Heuer watch made from platinum (170 grams of it), fact that gives to it its modern style.

.

The Monaco V4 changes inspired from car engines. Like mechanical watches, it engines has the same concepts: transmission, friction, torque and power. But, the Tag Heuer First uses a 4.25-gram platinum ingot which acts as a sort of cylinder, in a linear movement. Then, changes the transmission of power from the traditional wheels to a drive-belt transmission: 13 belts with a gauge measure of 0.5 x 0.45mm.

.
The Monaco V4 uses 2.2mm diameter bearings with 0.25mm balls rotating inside, rather than synthetic rubies to reduce friction acting as energy generators with bridges made of transparent sapphire.

.
The Monaco V4 wristwatch was presented at Baselworld in 2004. Then, in 2007, a production ready piece was shown. 2009 was the year in which the Monaco V4 watch version was finally presented.
