    Can somebody explain to me in very simple language, what define them as co axial. What did they modified from ETA so it became Co Axial.

    I've read it but i still cannot truly understand it.

    The Co-axial Escapement was invented by an English watchmaker by the name of George Daniels (RIP). The primary driver was to remove the lubrication required in the traditional Swiss Lever Escapement.

    I thought they will release a smaller Connected.

    If they could make a rubber strap that looked like that it would possibly be fun, but chucking paint at £20,000 watches if just stupid.

    Yes, I would still like the black and silver one Otto.... but whether it will ever happen I really don't know.

    No, I meant larger for my future purchase, as they apparently will release both. See my previous post about this:

    I'm 50 in a couple of years. I've admired the Rolex Daytona for a long time but I'm not at one with the brand.

    Hence, I'm thinking a full set blue dial vintage Monaco would be more me.

    Other than that, vintage style mushroom pushers on a Heuer Monaco re-release please. My least favourite feature of my Monaco IMO.

    Agree with the button pushers on the Monaco. Ruins the re-editions.

    I don't understand why they do it. My Monza, Silverstone & Autavia have the vintage style pushers on them.

    The Monaco re-editions were created long before the others. I imagine that if they were to be made now, they would use chrono pushers that mimic the original ones.

    No confirmation yet, however given the recent French limited edition, the chances of seeing a Dark Lord are better. But who knows.
    That said, I strongly doubt the pushers will change.
