I don't see many Monacos on the board in other forums, so I wanted to get a list of the members that have Monacos here. I figure they'll eventually pass through the Tag Heuer forum.

Of course, pics are welcome, as are the stories behind them!



That's mine. It's a Monaco Vintage, number 3122 out of 4000, bought at an AD in 2007 as NOS. It was a gift to me for my college graduation from my brother. He gave it to me in 2008. I had started to wear it less and less because of the high monetary and sentimental value (it had become a Friday only watch), but I made a resolution going into 2011 to wear it 3 times a week, even if not for the full day. I'm wearing it today as well, as I still wear it every Friday.

Now it's your turn!

For the Monaco re-edition I have number 3XXX/5000 and my gulf Monaco I have 0XXX/2500. The Blue Monaco is just a standard edition. I also have the CW2110-0 I haven't listed it because it's getting a rubber strap with deployment buckle soon =)

Cowboy, I just noticed the date window of your limited edition is white text on black background...sure wish they still did this. BYW, you guys should be careful about posting serial or watch numbers.

Here is mine. Monaco Vintage, limited edition of 1860.
Hey thanks... Hexyebo... I took the liberty of editing the series' number... I thought it was ok as long as you don't put the actual SERIAL NUMBER lol...

Oh well by the way... damn that watch lol... if I ever get the opportunity to get one of those...lol the limited edition McQueen blue is also sweet however, one of those would go for 15K above...

That is gorgeous.

I'm not sure the individual number is something you really need to worry about. My license plate number is certainly more sensitive, and thousands of people see that everyday.

Nice idea having a Monaco Club, here are some images of mine CAW211A.EB0026 40th Anniversary LE 1000 and CW211A.FC6228 Gulf vintage LE 4000.

That is quite inspirational. I like it! "History begins every morning." I'll have to remember that.

Also, if anyone wants to attempt to make a Monaco Club logo, we can put them together and have a poll and then add it to out sigs.

that sounds like an awesome idea with the monaco logo... hehe...
I certainly thought so ;-) .

I have no photoshopping skills, so at best I could mock something up in MS Paint.

I dig it. Though I'd change the background to something dark, personally, and put the word "Monaco" in there somewhere.

Obviously I'm a McQueen fan, so that pulls well.

Any ideas on how much a Monaco 24 goes for?

The"old" MSRP on the Monaco 24 is $10,900 USD. There were two stickers in my Monaco 24 box. One had the $10,900 price on it and the second had a price of $11,888. Both of the stickers originated from TAG and had Model Number and Serial Number info as well as barcodes. I'm not sure which price is presently "official" from TAG. I paid less (sorry guys, I can not say how much less, but it was substantial! Please don't PM me for price info as I agreed with my AD not to disclose this information). It pays (handsomely sometimes) to have a good relationship with your AD.

I'm willing to bet that anyone (seriously) approaching Topper Jewelers about this watch might be surprised at the deal they get.

:-!:-!
