    I have not seen the caseback yet, maybe they decided late in the process to engrave Porsche on the back and make it a Porsche watch even though it was planned to just be a racing green Monaco?

    Honestly I'm not paying much attention to the H02 Monacos until the crown is properly moved to the left. More importantly than tradition, I think it just balances the case out better.

    Interesting too that the "radial" dials are placed on the H02s while the C11s continue on with the original square / rectangular markers. Which is a much better look for the square case too, IMO

    I linked the IG post with images of the Porsche in my prior post. Here it is again: https://www.instagram.com/p/CN7BI4bllti/

    If it is a Porsche Formula E tie up, the color may have been chosen for "green" energy. I heard it might be more like Emerald.

    I couldn't see anything "Porsche" on the caseback from the instagram video post (not story). There might be something there, but what's the point of having a Porsche x Monaco with only having a "Porsche" reference on the back?

    You might be right. But very odd to tease with Porsche images if not a Porsche Collab. ::confused2::

    The car headlights do look "Porsche-y" to me tho... Not sure about the rev counter as I've never owned a Porsche...

    The images looked more to me like "race car" imagery than specifically Porsche, it's just that since they're partnered with Porsche on a number of levels, why not use their cars for this imagery. Either way though, this Monaco is not a Porsche collab.

    The headlights, tachometer and side view mirrors are most definitely an old school air cooled Porsche 911.

    Could the reference be (McQueen's character) Delaney's green Porsche in Le Mans?

    May be they'll call it the McQueen movie car LE, without even referencing Porsche on the watch. That could be a tricky way to save on licensing fees. :rolleyes:

    Or y'know that little-known other green car McQueen drove in that one film.

    Pretty obscure though ::book::

    Ha, I like that link. Overthinking it for sure... although the car in the IG clip is certainly an F or G model, so could be.

    How about McQueen’s Highland Green Bullitt Mustang? :eek:

    This is what @abrod520 was hinting at.

    Yes sir :thumbsup: The green Bullitt Mustang is the “star of a classic hollywood movie” and I don’t recall McQueen’s green 911S in Le Mans a “star” since obviously we have the Porsche 917K Gulf & Ferrari 512S as the main stars in the movie.

    Putting the green 911S from Le Mans as the “star” of the movie is a bit of a stretched from TAG Heuer’s marketing and a bit trying “just to make a connection” :confused: IMHO

    I wouldn't get your hopes up on a Porsche collab on the Monaco.
