    Speaking of new Monacos, what is the brown one, with diamonds on the dial that seems to be associated with the Kingsmen film? It's in the window of my local boutique but I haven't seen any press about it.

    It's kinda cool, I like the colorway and TAG has really gotten their strap game on point lately, but you're way overpaying for a substandard Sellita base in these watches at this point.

    I am curious if Monza is sellita base ? Because mine is surely accurate. I only notice +10 seconds after 2 weeks. Not bad at all.

    The base for the Calibre 17 is the ETA 2894-A2. I'm not aware that there has been a Sellita substitution for this movement.

    Also the telemeter ?because that one of mine is surely accurate too. Perhaps slightly even more than calibre17.

    The Telemeter is the Calibre 18 which is a Sellita SW300 with a DD2223 chronograph module.

    Is there any proof that Sellita should be worse than ETA in terms of accuracy?

    Not all, but my calibre5 sellita based is by far the weakest accuracy among all. (Still in the acceptable range though)

    Does it vary in terms of accuracy or is it consistently fast/slow, though? If the latter, then likelihood is it could be regulated to keep accurate time. Plus obviously one isn't a big enough sample size to draw any conclusion anyway.

    Of course its not big enough sample at all.

    It just from my own personal experience.

    It is consistently fast in my experience. Yes i think it could be regulated. I never try to regulated it. I am thinking to do it soon.

    Just to answer my own question, it is the Monaco Lady Kingsman, as worn by Halle Berry in the film. Some more information here: http://timeandtidewatches.com/news-...-hedging-their-bets-on-the-future-of-watches/.
