Do you love black? Well, checkout Tag Heuer Monaco V4 Phantom Watch, it’s totally black, totally matt, so sleek. It’s made out of entirely carbon fiber, the case is equipped with microscopic toothed micro-belt transmission (the size is no wider than 0.07mm) that has linear weight and moves on a rail.
The case is made from CMC (Carbon Matrix Composite) as well as 7 bridges of its movement. Tag Heuer uses a specific technique to create them in directed carbon, it means that the carbon fibers are placed in a specific direction in the mould and then micro blasted to create elegant matt black vertical brushed appearance.
Even the dial is composed of shades of dark grey and black. As you can see in the photo, the hands are faceted and satin finished. The only things which are not black are those 48 red stones. Each unit is hand assembled at TAG Heuer in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland. Just in case you don’t know, Monaco V4 was actually unveiled 11 years ago in 2004 where the V4 name refers to its V-shaped main plate that carries 4 barrels mounted in 2 adjacent pairs on ball bearings.
