    Not a great photo, but the new dial looks really good

    For those who don't like square watches, but love the McQueen Monaco :)

    Lovely blue. I agree that picture probably doesn't do it justice.

    Very, very tempting. I have the JH80 and the anthracite model already, but this is a really special color, which in conjuction with the limited edition, makes it a very desirable piece.

    Will this be a "TH Boutique only" model again?

    Not sure. I see that this one has the standard Calibre 17 movement rather than the COSC version found in the boutique edition

    Very pretty design, is there any indication from JCB that the Calibre 17 / piggyback chronograph models will continue long term if the Calibre Heuer 01 is available with a 3-6-9 and by extension 3-9 layout as that would get the sub-seconds at 9 and minute register at 3 like the classic models used to have

    By "the boutique edition", are you referring to the other two Calibre 17 models, the CV5111.FC6335 and the CV5110.FC6310? I don't see any indication of COSC certification, either on the dial or on the Tag Heuer catalog webpages (under "MOVEMENT" of each watch).

    On the other hand, the Carrera Calibre 8 GMT has COSC certification, clearly. The dial says "Officially Certified", and the webpage says "C.O.S.C. certified automatic watch".

    Correct: "Chronometer" = COSC

    I still don't understand why those two Calibre 17 models don't call out the COSC certification. Not everyone knows what "Chronometer" may imply. The Calibre 8 GMT clearly says "COSC" on its webpage, but the Calibre 17 models do not.
