Indeed. I tried to buy Monaco few times but size, especially it's thickness, stopped me opening my wallet.

It's an iconic range otherwise. A beautiful watch when I see others wearing.

Exactly my point.

Always wanted one, yet,,,,

was hesitant to actually get it. About 16 months ago made the arrangements with my local AD and sooooo glad I did!. A truly fun timepiece with that famed Monaco / Gulf styling. I mixed it up with a NATO strap Works great, reliable, and I think mine is +3/...  

Thanks all. Very interesting

To hear all your thoughts. So many different ones over the years. My ad bringing one to lunch later this week so will get to try it on and see 👍🏻

Can I ask why

You say as long as it’s a Caliber 11 ? I see there are two “blue” Monaco’s. Ones an 11 abs the other is an 02 - is the 11 a better movement ?

Main reason is that the caliber 11 has the crown on the left side of the case like the original Monaco did. I'm pretty sure both are modular chronographs but the 11 is higher

grade hence the higher price. I'm a big blue dial and a Steve Mcqueen fan which prompted me to look at both closely and I believe the blue in the cal 12 is more vibrant vs the blue in the 11 which is a slightly different shade and a bit flatter, less vibr... 

Thanks. Actually have both

In the office with me to compare so I’ll get a good look at them.

Just posted a few pics

On a new thread there. There’s a big difference between the blues.
