    New review from ABlogToWatch. There are a lot of great photos.

    At Baselworld 2015, TAG Heuer quietly launched what we are looking at today, the TAG Heuer Monaco Calibre 11 Reference CAW211P, and other than few truly very minor differences, it allows Heuer Monaco fans to get a taste of owning the original – at around half the price of what that 1,000-piece limited edition cost before selling out like hot cakes in 2009.

    David reminded me that next year will be the 50th Anniversary of the Monaco. His logic dictates that TAG will release the black PVD Monaco. Sounds logical. Anything else anyone would like to see? Would a Heuer-02 calibre inside tickle your fancy?

    The 50th anniversary will be in 2019. Definitely that edition would be on my wishlist, regardless of the movement. I only wonder if they will go "modern" (like the 50th anniversary Carrera), instead of retro (like what we've been speculating with the Dark Lord).

    Yeah. My hope is that they don't mess with the design like they did with the Autavia. Put a modern movement in it sure, but don't mess with a classic design. Not for, what I consider, the MOST iconic piece in HEUER history. Still a lot of time between now and then. This will keep me company for a long while:

    Will the Heuer02 movement fit in the 39mm case ?


    My only problem if i purchased the steve mcqueen one now and next year they released the dark lord (or it's proximity) i'll be kicking myself hard as dark lord is my favorite monaco ever even more than steve mcqueen one.

    Not sure. To be 100% clear, I have no idea what TAG Heuer is doing with the Monaco in 2018, let alone 2019. But if they asked the question, absolutely I'd say make it a PVD re-edition with a two-register Heuer-02!

    Funny how many of us have been scheming towards that 50th Anniversary Monaco for years like...

    This. The Monaco needs to be 2-register. The 3-register chronos look naff, IMO.
