Agreed 100%. There are a lot of watches that mimic the Calibre 16 but the Monaco is a classic and soooooo beautiful. I really love the look and will be saving hard and selling inventory to ensure I have one within 6 mths...

 

I think I also like the Monaco better than the Carrera, even though the Carrera C16 in question is the Monaco GP edition one. I just love that understatement look and, without a doubt would age better. And it gets even better as the Monaco is actually about $2,000 cheaper than the Carrera :D

Thanks all... Yeah, the 'Heuer' (pre-TAG) is one of my older 'nice' watches. Mid '80s finery. Wow... just realized it's about 30 years old. Holy crap!

Yep, bought my Formula in 1987 and TAG's we all the rage! Funny how adding it to the moniker/dials drove sales but apparently it worked, pretty sharp marketing:wink:

Absolutely!

 

Lovely examples you have there, Shane.
