    I like that I have a sentimental value to the clock. I'm sitting here typing this now with nothing but the tik-toc of the clock, very soothing. I had it refurbished back in New Hampshire maybe 20-23 years ago. The fella did a fantastic job. He had the face sent out to have hand painted back on instead of a paper dial. It had quite a few chips missing from age. The clock repair guy was amazed of the condition of the gold leaf. It's still all there. The case was super dark with age and since it's a family heirloom and I wasn't worried about value being an antique I stripped of the finish and refinished the cabinet myself. It wasn't worth really anything w/o being restored but it's worth a million bucks to me.
    It will be nice knowing it will go to my brother's daughter from her great grand parents.

    One question... in the UK, until recently we haven't seen 15deg for about three months, I assume if it was here we'd have to wind it?

    You know what, I've been out all morning thinking 'what a dumb question'... obviously the clock will be in the house!

    Hi , I'm still relatively new here, and since I came here, what a journey. I started looking for a watch because I hadden't ( correct ? ) worn one in 17 years. That was sept '17 . So first I bought a chinese automatic watch ,..what a joke ! But since I am a bit of a scrooge , and spending more than 100€ on a watch is like going skydiving with having vertigo , it appealed to me. So, after that I decided to look for value/quality , but those watches never 'spoke' to me. I then decided to push my 'vertigo' aside , and just started looking at watch models , without price, and came to Tag Heuer, more specific the 2000 and 6000 range spoke to me. I found a WI1150 very fast, actually two of them on seperate occasions, and the one Iposted here went for ~400 . But allthough the seller said they were rare, and someone here acknowledged that, because I found two of them in quick succesion , I thought I knew better. LOL . I didn't . It did however make me research Tag models more I read everything from the heuer days untill now , have seen every model. and realized that for me, I need to have solid gold on the watch, because just a layer will not last long . I also found out that my wrist is not the smallest at 20cm , and that TH bands can be quite expensive ! But today , after a long search , I bought this :

    When it arrives , I'll finally be able to post a picture on 'what's on your wrist ' . The same sellr also had an awesome looking
    165.806 for sale , if it weren't for my 'vertigo ' ( sounds better ) I would have bought both !

    Now, does anybody know where one can find leather straps for this model , priced for someone with 'vertigo '? :p

    Hi forum members, i am Subbu from India. i love watches. I have been looking to buy a Tag Heuer Monaco calibre 11 reference-CAW211P.FC6356.
    I wanted to know any good dealers in & around newyork, boston. please guide me. What is the best price i can get it for? I think it retails for USD $5900. what percentage of discount will i be able to get? will it be possible to get it for $4500? Any tips to talk deals, will any of the dealers be rude?
    Also please forgive if i started in the wrong thread. Please direct me to the thread where i can carry forward this discussion.
