I like the watch, and integration in the form of function. It’s fine to use some clever design, but to make such a design function is to sing it indeed is made watches. Continued use of luxury timekeeping tourbillon has been great, but fortunately there are some colder watchmakers out there who are more willing to be a little more daring and take things beyond merely expose their whereabouts.
TAG Heuer‘s Monaco V4 is one of the most unique timepieces in the world. The Monaco has been Heuer’s flagship timepiece for a number of decades. In 2004, Heuer launched as watch that mated the original Monaco’s rough dimensions with a peculiar belt-driven movement. Last year, the brand took things a step further and added a tourbillon to this already-groundbreaking timepiece. Now if only they could cut a few bucks off its exorbitant $170,000 price tag.
