TAG Heuer – Monza & James Hunt Special Editions
Celebrating two 40th anniversaries this year, TAG Heuer have revealed new timepieces to mark these momentous milestones.
Introducing… TAG Heuer Monza Chronograph
Marking the 40th anniversary of the first Monza series back in 1976, TAG Heuer have launched a striking new model to honour the original design. Born to celebrate Ferrari’s Formula 1 win in 1975, the distinctive all-black chronograph made its debut in 1976 with two intriguing features – a pulsometer (to measure heart rate) and tachymeter scale (which converts time into speed).
Boasting these two functions, the 2016 reissue also echoes the design of the original Monza with its all-black aesthetic, red accents and the historic Heuer logo. The differences lie in the increased case size, which is now made from grade 5 titanium and coated with titanium carbide, for a powerfully masculine look. Powered by the iconic TAG Heuer Calibre 17 automatic movement, this beautiful timepiece undoubtedly represents a milestone in the history of TAG Heuer’s esteemed heritage. Coming June 2016…
Introducing… TAG Heuer Formula 1 James Hunt Limited Edition
Continuing the legacy of James Hunt, one of the greatest British motor racers, TAG Heuer have launched two limited edition timepieces to mark the 40th anniversary of his 1976 Formula 1 World Championships victory.
The result of an exclusive partnership with The Hunt Foundation and a creative collaboration with James Hunt’s son and fellow racer, Freddie Hunt, the two polished steel chronograph Formula 1 models are available with either a fabric NATO strap or full steel bracelet. A limited edition design with only 500 pieces available, these exclusive models feature the limited edition number and James Hunt’s signature imprinted on the underside of the case.
A must-have for any Formula 1 fan wanting to own a piece of British history, these incredible watches will be launched exclusively at the world-renowned Goodwood Festival of Speed on 23rd – 26th June 2016.

Stone of the Month – Emerald
Often coveted by royalty and symbolising renewal of life, the striking emerald is the traditional birthstone of May. Said to bring the wearer foresight, good fortune and youth, emeralds were originally sourced from mines in Egypt and have been treasured for over 4000 years.
A fitting purchase for this blooming time of year, this dramatic gemstone is the perfect piece of jewellery for a unique engagement ring, a special gift for a May birthday or to mark an incredible milestone – the emerald represents 55 years of marriage.
Often paired with diamonds and beautifully complementing both white and yellow gold, our collection of emerald jewellery is the ultimate in timeless opulence.
