Swiss watch maker TAG Heuer enhances its prestigious Monaco V4 collection with a stylish stealthy version that is made with black carbon fibre in matte finish.
The V4 Phantom is made from CMC (Carbon Matrix Composite) and the 7 bridges of its movement, also in CMC. A specific technique was used to create them in "directed carbon", which means that the carbon fibres are placed in a certain direction in the mould, then micro-blasted, giving them a regular and particularly elegant "matt black vertical brushed" appearance. The entire dial is composed of shades of dark grey and black. For example, the hands are faceted and satin-finished, with a Titanium Carbide Coating and anthracite grey SuperLuminova™. Only the jewels (a total of 48 stones in the movement) reveal discreet little touches of red.
