    A place holder for when the post goes live, Friday evening Monaco time...

    To be clear, the image above is a Calibre 12 Monaco that I have modified. It’s not a TAG Heuer image..

    for the first edition of 169 pieces, you would have to change the black strap for a brown

    I kinda like it. Dial is unique, strap is great. Like you said, colors come down to a personal preference.

    Definitely LOVE the return of the serif font. Current sans serif is good too, but switching the names back to serif is a nice call back!

    The decorative severity of the Cotes de Geneve of the dial is fun for me. It's like the movement of a fine watch has been flipped inside out. I dig it.

    Same for me. The watch looks a lot better than the leaked images..but it’s not one for me.

    I really like it. Very unusual, but has a definite vintage vibe. 2mm smaller and circular pushers and this would have been perfect.

    I saw that on the UK site. But when I clicked 'add to basket' it told me it was sold out.

    The US site said the same. Hopefully some availability may be added at a later date.

    It has a real quirky charm but with the colour scheme I'm not sure how often i would end up wearing it. looks much better than the previews though.... but will I like one of the other better? That's the question!

    That’s the $64000 question, do you jump at one that is available or wait until you see another that really shouts buy me and miss out, I suspect few if any will be available to buy within a few days.
    When will the first watch appear for sale at premium price I wonder?

    It's nice, really. But for some reason my mind is programmed to expect blue on a Monaco.
