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

Nice looking professionals Shane, I love the 2000:bigsmile_face:

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.

Guys, one more question if I may. It's not, strictly speaking a watch, but since its a Tag I guess it is still relevant to be asked here :D

 

Which of these Tag Heuer wallets do you guys like the most?

 

'Phantomatik' (Click to show)
'Racing' (Click to show)
'Classic' (Click to show)

The one that has the most money in it!

lol good answer :D

I'd not be willing to pay that much for a wallet, but if I did I'd choose Racing.

post #8320 of 12082
I would choose Racing as well, because I am pretty sure that one out of the three would get the most oohs and ahs when people saw it for the very first time.

On the serious side I'm also in favor of the Racing as the Carbon Fiber look always intrigues:cool:

Classic.

 

Keeping it subtle is always a sign of refinement.

Yes, to each their own. Some prefer flash over refinement, as long as any product is done with love and quality I'm open to it myself. Some days suits and some days jeans:wink_face:

Interesting that so far no one prefers the Phantomatik..
