Visited an AD in Stockholm today but they did not have the H02 Monaco in stock
Do we know how thick it is?
Hard to tell how much thicker it is or if its really thicker to me, at least in photos. I'd like to know the actual size of the thickness too.
Heuer 02 on top, Calibre 12 on the bottom.
This watch is now live, along with the Final Edition
Calibre 11 post is also live: https://www.calibre11.com/first-look-tag-heuer-monaco-heuer-02-chronograph-blue-dial-ref-cbl2111/
I did ask on the case- believe that its the same case with different internal dimensions (movement is 31mm vs. 30mm for Calibre 12).
Looks so much better with the crown aligned on the same level as the pushers
Notice that the new crystal has "softer" edges.
Wow, I can tell someone else has also spent way to much time in this great store!
It's strange, I always thought the Monaco was just on the edge on being too big for me. Sure it's big, bit it didn't feel to crazy on the wrist when I tried it on. Given the Panerai situation, well, let's not talk about that...
Not much at all, they are great for sure but you would remember the store that sold you the Calibre 360. I was also on the list there for the Omega speedmaster A11 50SS but declined after it came through somewhere else quicker. Maybe the A13 next year with them.
Good to hear that you got the A11 50SS quicker, it seems to be a great watch! The staff has always been super nice to me and especially one of them is always eager to have a watch chat with me, a decent indicator for what stores I prefer to visit! Great to hear that there are some locals on the forum as well!
Always liked the Monaco but not actually full on fallen for it yet, maybe this one could tip me over.
Some new pics in this article by Monochrome Watches. (They also claim that the case is slightly thicker, by "just a bit".)
They always have amazing shots!
It's no thicker than the Calibre 11/12 models is it?
Not 100% sure. TAG Heuer said to me that it was the same case- but maybe the back plate is marginally thicker? Either way, I suspect that if its any thicker, we are talking tiny increments
It's exciting they're moving the Heuer 02 movement into the Monaco. But I just have never warmed to this dial version, with the radial indices.
To the insiders here, any idea if we'll see this 12 hour chrono layout come to the classic Heuer dial version? Because THAT is what would get my money.
I'd say, start saving!
Given TAG Heuer went to all that trouble to make a two-register Heuer 02 movement for the Autavia LE, it would seem to make sense to expand the family- we have a tourbillon, 2 and 3 register...and the Nanograph. Don't see any reason why it wouldn't make sense to make a "new new" Calibre 11, this time based on the Heuer 02
I'm really hoping for a Heuer 02 based successor to the CAW211P as well.
The only reason I can see TH not doing it is if for some reason the Heuer 02 can't be made to easily work with a left-side crown.
