From what I've gathered I believe I have more Sixty Nine models in my collection than anyone else in the world (I could very well be wrong) my story: I fell in love with this model in 2006 (officially shown to the world in 2003) I was 16 years old at the time and I loved the idea of quartz and mechanical existing in the same case. One side uses the quartz HR03 movement and the other uses a modified ETA 7001 movement. A lot of people don't like quartz, some don't like mechanical, some hate watches all together. But this particular Monaco spoke to me above the rest. Every day that I wear it, I do not regret it. first thing is that the Monaco is a square watch which is unusual in its own right (but in a good way). Secondly, people who know a bit about watches ask me why is that my watch has a single seconds sub dial and no other dials yet there are 4 buttons spread on both sides? Then I proceed to flip the unit over and show them the digital chronograph side and this has always left them in awe. To me this is a special watch, it was my dream watch and in 2014 it became reality for me. My write up is nothing special here - just a watch nut who wanted to share his special moment with other watch nuts! thanks for viewing the pics. I cant log into watchuseek for the moment but I will be posting the same story there too. if there are any questions you may have about this piece feel free to ask and I will do my best to answer them!
