    Morning all,

    I’m a bit crazy for the Heuer re-editions.

    0D69A3F5-73BA-4333-9BB9-611DB9C08948.jpeg

    One that really bugs me though is the Monaco.

    Why oh why don’t they use the vintage style round / mushroom pushers? I know it’s a first world problem & I keep banging on about it but it really bugs me.

    If anyone has any influence over TH, please use it :)

    Cheers,

    Simon

    Whilst I like the look of the mushroom pushers I have broken a couple -think they may have caught on my jeans pocket- the blade? style suit do have a neater aerodynamic finish.

    Lovely collection thanks for sharing. Am plotting a similar collection myself. Some great reissues to be found

    Interested in your experiences with the silverstone? Have never tried one on but love the look.

    Thanks. I love my Silverstone as it was my first re-edition. Wears really nicely.

    My first Monaco was the TH CW2111. Lovd the Plexi crystal on that :)

    Oh, yes. The elusive Silverstone has never made my "must have" list. Maybe one day.

    If the red Silverstone re-edition was mass-produced, I would have gotten one by now.

    This one is very nice and distinctive but for some reason, red dial always excited me for few days and quickly wear off. That just me though.

    Do they happen to have green dial by any chance ?

    I don't believe green was ever produced on a Silverstone. But now that you mention it, an emerald green would look lovely on that.

    He’s on here. Nethers66. One of my very best mates. He was with me when I bought the Carrera last week.

    Lovely collection, and like you I do wish that one detail had remained true to the original and had round pushers. Let’s hope a 50th anniversary McQueen model comes out with round pushers....it would get my money.

    I’m yet to try a Monza on, but want to as I really think they did quite a good job with a modern version of the vintage here.

    The brown (Fume) looks lovely on both the original and reedition.
