    Looking forward to seeing pics of your new Speedy!

    I'm not selling anything, but not buying either. Got the call that my Black Bay Chrono Panda was in, but decided to pass. I will live vicariously through admiring the purchases of others (like you) for now. :)

    For me it depends on the finish, I am super paranoid about scratching my pvd watches, but don’t worry about the stainless watches at all. Stainless hides its wear well

    I went to the New Tudor Boutique yesterday to check out the BB Panda but was so disappointed they didn't have one there to play with. Had the Bronze BB but it did nothing for me. No hope of getting a Panda here I'm guessing as they said it's very popular and needed to go into a waiting list to inspect if they got 1 in. Playing the same games as Rolex.
    As soon as they asked if I'd purchased from them previously alarm bells went off in my head and I lost interest in talking to them any further. So I walked out.
    Should have the Speedy within a couple of weeks.

    He's my friend and I work with him. If you look back on my blog you'll see that we did 2-3 trips to London to look at watches (we were supposed to do it again just around the time the pandemic started too). He also owns a smaller 2000 Series but I don't know if he wears it much.

    Makes perfect sense to get the perspective of a non brainwashed person too :D Rich is our way of knowing what normal people think about TAG releases

    He also has his feet very much on the ground financially, in that he has three children and a mortgage. His Tudor came from money left to him by an aunt who died, the Pelagos is his only 'luxury' watch.

    Having owed the Calibre 6 Jim, I’d say it’s more a yellow/ gold hue rather than silver…

    Sad news you bring on this Sunday night of ours. Good thing then that most used ones are garbage condition which has scared me from getting one.

    CAW2113.FC62560: 39mm, grey 'Gulf' dial, steel case on a black leather strap (Limited Edition)
    >>>> Strap reference is FC6250

    2011/12 Catalogue
    This catalogue sees the arrival of the first Monaco 24, it always surprises me that the grey/orange was the first, I always kind of assumed it was the last of the four for some reason...
    >>>> Incorrect, the first Monaco 24 was the Gulf version

    You know I'd keep you honest on any of the Gulf models. ;)

    Also, you show the Red Monaco Historique & Hourglass Monaco sitting side by side, which I think is a little misleading from a release timing viewpoint. Because the Hourglass was released in 2019 (before the last of the Monaco 50th editions - CAW211Z), while the Monaco Historique was released in 2020 for the Monaco Historique race.
