Hopefully you have a napkin handy because more delicious timepieces are making their way out to us from the on-going Baselworld 2015 event. Next up is the TAG Heuer Monaco V4 Phantom, which is a modern re-working of the iconic watch first introduced in 2004. Since it was first unvieled - just as it is still now - the Monaco packs a ton of technology and innovation into one 41mm device, with the most prominent feature being that it is the first watch to be driven by belts. Understandably, the watch has seen a lot of iterations and offerings over the years, including platinum, gold, and titanium, but the Phantom with its carbon case in a stealthy black and rose-gold accents is for those seeking a more subtle luxury. And to be sure, we're not just talking about usual carbon fiber here; TAG is going with a new Carbon Matrix Composite for the case and movement bridges that joins the material's usual light weight and strength with an interesting new visual appeal. The look is finished with hands in a satin and titanium carbine coating in an anthracite grey and a matte black alligator strap. The TAG Heuer Monaco V4 Phantom watch is expected to launch later this year in an initial run of 50, each selling for $45,000.
