When I first watched this video my first thought was, do I really want to be in the city and see women going about their business with the ‘country girl’ look? Then the suits came out and I thought, my my my, country or city, I would definitely love to see women in those……

…..and the dresses too. Nice songs. Nice collection.

Basically, the Monaco v4 is the first watch to be powered by an engine similar to a car’s, i.e. with transmission belts. The idea is meant to resemble a piston in an engine, hence the v4. Price is $80,000 for each piece (of the 150 units made to celebrate Tag Heuer’s 150th anniversary)in the limited edition (save for the first piece that is being auctioned off for charity).
