    Didn't you also own the CAW211P? I thought I recalled you posting about it before.

    I remember your CW2113, but felt this list should be for left side crown C11 McQueens. Otherwise the list will be huge.

    No, never owned that one. I've currently got three- the two McQueens and the Gold CW5140. In the past, I've had the Red Calibre 11 50th Anniversary and the original CS2110. You're right- I'm getting off topic...so just the one left-hander Monaco for me:thumbsup:

    My bad on the "P", I've corrected the list.
    But you sold your Red 80's Monaco 50!? :eek: Would've thought that one would be a keeper.

    I've noticed you've been eyeing this watch for some time. It's a good year to get it, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the movie Le Mans. ;)

    I had expected to get mine when it was first released, but it took me until 2019. Another good year, as it was the Monaco's 50th anniversary. :)

    Yes it's been a while and sorry for boring the forum on this! Watch funds for the last year not as good as they were, and some smaller purchases on the horizon also, Nomos & Oris 65. But it's been between the Monaco and Speedy for the next big purchase.

    Guess having a young family and mortgage priorities have to change.

    Although I may move my Panerai on, so an incoming could be quicker.

    Not helped by Tag increasing the RRP mind you.

    Yes but remember that they will continue raising the price 5-15% every year so the longer you wait the more it will hurt

    Unfortunately, you can take me off the list for I sold mine a couple of years ago; old pic attached which brings tears to my eyes every time :(Of all the watches I have sold, the Monaco and the Submariner Date were the two that I am still regretting. However, if TAG ever releases the crown on the left Monaco on the Heuer 02, then I will pull the trigger.

    I've updated the list above to note yours was sold. Just curious, what did you get in place of the Monaco and Submariner?
    I don't see myself ever selling the Monaco, its my favorite watch. I also own a Submariner and will never sell it either; it just keeps going up in value.

    Ever since I became scuba certified, about 9 years ago, I got more and more into dive watches, especially Seiko due to their long history. So when I sold my Monaco, Autavia, Telemeter, Monza and Carrera Calibre 5, they all went to fund a bunch of Seikos and some YEMAs. I did however, kept my Aquaracer. I’m also an avid cyclist so some funds went towards a new bike too :)
    As for the Submariner, a co-worker really wanted it and made an offer that was too good to pass up. I told myself that I will just grab another but Jesus, I never thought in a million years that the demand would be this insane. On a waiting list so crossing my fingers.

    Yes yes at first you take a big hit but long term you can save a lot.

    If you wanna buy new it takes a very long time indeed. However plenty of pre-owned options. I’ve had a 14060 at the top of my list more than once but something always comes in between. An OB, Monaco, Dato to good to pass up. I figure there’s always a pool of good Subs in the 7-8k region when I don’t get distracted by another beauty. An Explorer II is also a contender. I do realize these T dial sports Rolexes won’t remain affordable for much longer.
