    @Jim Dollares already answered the question about location, I just took a chance and mailed PCA just curious about the possibility and was surprised they still had stock and were willing to ship/sell. Later on I tried the GSOTM at an AD to discover 44.25mm is too big for my wrist.

    I guess they didn't mind selling to outside the PCA if they had leftover stock. The Monaco PCA 55 sold out fast. I suppose the $12,911 asking price of this one was too high even for many Porsche owners.

    Treated myself with this cool collab watch :cool::cool::cool:. Had to pay 40% above retail. But it's not the carbon Monaco, so not a big deal.

    Do you think it would be ok to use this as a tool watch? :confused:

    Thank you Jim. Yes, wouldn't want to live anywhere else.
    But Sweden is incredible, too. I was in Gardsjö for one week in 2019. Made also a short trip to Fjällbacka.

    Does this mean RM will stop sponsoring any of the other 27 F1 teams they already sponsor or they just want their name on everything in F1? :D

    It seems like that. Promoting the RM brand to anything and everything that it can stick on :rolleyes::rolleyes:

    One goal of “obnoxious watchmakers” are to create watches that are all hyped up, seemingly want people to wonder & desire and then all of a sudden, not have any chance of getting one.. :cautious::cautious:
    (yes same as what guilty R@l&x has done on a different level)

    I wonder how Rolex keeps selling 25% of all Swiss watches when it seems they never have stock to sell.

    Good question. Their stainless steel sports watches are never in stock and when they do come in, the whales that spend crazy money on Rolex are the only ones that can get them.

    But from what I see at my local ADs, there's plenty of the non-sports Rolex models in stock, that's what most people must be buying.

    @Jim Dollares

    Definitely a cool design, wish they put a Seiko auto movement or Chinese hand wind seagull in it. I believe this would loose my interest as a mechaquartz.

    Yup I was thinking the same. Would be fun for a short while and then end up never worn

    I've been wanting that Seagull Chronograph but 2 out of 3 my friends that own that type of movement always ended up with problem and ended up need to service as almost as the cost of the watch itself.

    Still i want to try though...
