    Here's a sparingly-worn CAW211A Steve McQueen Monaco, the 40th Anniversary edition from 2009, released to commemorate 40 years of the Monaco and McQueen. It comes with the full set of inner/outer box, papers, occasionally worn alligator strap, unworn perforated racing strap, immaculate McQueen book, hang tag & spring bar tool.

    I'm looking for £SOLD, might be interested in trades or other offers - try me :) I'm based near Reading, UK and would be happy to conclude the sale in person, otherwise we can come to an arrangement over PayPal/shipping etc.

    I bought the watch earlier this year and have worn it maybe a dozen times; the previous owner said he only wore it twice in 7 years since he got it from new. Looking at it under a loupe there are a few small marks in the polished finish but nothing visible to the naked eye and the crystal is unmarked.

    Frankly, the "special" nature of this watch means I'm wary of wearing it at all, and that means it needs to find another home - I see no point of having something like a watch, car, musical instrument etc, that isn't going to be used.

    This is one of the 1,000 special editions, it's 38mm (instead of the 39mm of the CAW211P - see http://www.calibre11.com/first-look-heuer-monaco-calibre-11-mcqueen-chronograph/ for more details).
    Here it is next to the CAW211P (A on the left, P on the right):

    This is the first watch I've ever sold - my watch buying & selling hobby has been all about acquisition to this point. I'm on quite a few watch forums (mostly here & OmegaForums) and Pistonheads under the same user id, and e3wan on eBay. Happy to provide references from others I've bought watches from if that helps.

    Managed to pick another up a few months ago. Thanks anyway. It didn’t come with the book though. Did the book come with the watch when originally purchased. ?

    I have the watch which unfortunately I don't want to sell. (Sorry Bushpd) But there is one on Ebay at the moment finishing in a few hours.
    https://ebay.to/30SLqPp
    It's a hell of a watch- one worthy of it's status within the TH community.

    BTW, I am after a copy of Unforgettable McQueen, not the one you can get on Amazon but the one which came with the CAW211A (Pictured)
    If anyone has one for sale or knows of where I can buy one, please let me know.

    Is it me, or is there a strong smell of fish about that ebay listing? No box or papers of any kind, very scant info on the listing ...

    The watch isn't in great condition, and it's been sold several times by the same vendor:
    https://www.ebay.com/usr/wild.carpathia
    (clidk Items for Sale, filter on Sold, then sort by price highest...)

    ... and they have listing privacy turned on so you can't see any detail of the bidding history and whether it's the same one or two zero-feedback accounts pushing the price up...

    The watch is currently listed on chrono24 from a private seller in Romania...with exactly the same description.
    Maybe the new owner just wants to flip it, or maybe there is something fishy going on!
