Innovative and Audacious Embodiment of the Avant-Garde
In June 2005, TAG Heuer "rocked" the fashion and watch making worlds by launching, in collaboration with its fascinating ambassador Uma Thurman, a diamond-rich line of high-luxury timepieces for women. The Haute-Couture and Prêt-à-Porter pieces in Uma's Diamond collection are amongst the most audaciously avant-garde luxury watches ever conceived. The trendsetting centrepiece of the collection, the Haute Couture DIAMOND FICTION, was awarded the prestigious Ladies Watch Prize at the 5th annual Grand Prix d'Horlogerie in Geneva, in November 2005.
In 2006, TAG Heuer raise the bar by launching for each collection new editions of daring and glamorous timepieces for avant-garde women as embodied by Uma Thurman and Maria Sharapova. Not only are the Hollywood star and Wimbledon Champion, two of the most glamorous and iconic ambassadors of the brand, they are perfect representatives of today's TAG Heuer woman. Self-confident and poised, seductive and determined, fashion-focused yet independent-minded, cultured yet glamorous, they don't follow trends, they set them! Strength and Beauty... that is what the TAG Heuer woman is made of!

Its retro-chic design is now regarded as an iconic horological accessory for fashion-forward women.
A feminine and modern interpretation of the Monaco original, the Monaco Watch Lady features the TAG Heuer Calibre 6 automatic movement, with a slightly downsized and sleeker case profile.

To showcase the TAG Heuer woman, TAG Heuer called upon Paris couturier Vincent Dupontreue´ to design a very sexy, feminine and trendy jean collection. Vincent Dupontreue´, whose exquisitely hand-distressed jeans are among today's most coveted collectibles, focused his attentions on the before mentioned iconic lines: Carrera and Monaco.
Available as a Carrera Watch, Carrera Chronograph or Monaco Chronograph, this trendy collection features distinctive denim straps by Vincent Dupontreue´ and very feminine white mother-of-pearl dials.
