Hhmmm not sure I'd go for green on green but it's a very nice interior
Might be a little too much green.
A few more pics on the bracelet. I actually think it looks rather good, now that I've seen more pics on the bracelet.

Hmm. Might have a think about ordering one at some point. Looks pretty good to me - the only thing I worry about is the sizing with no micro adjust.
A bit pricey. It’s a nice watch, but some of these prices are silly
Did we know this was 2021's Historique Monaco GP watch?
Yes. I knew It’s in TAG Heuer’s website
Two available at Watchfinder, £7400 and £7020
They had one in the ‘sale’ recently at 6.5k - so that tells you what you can negotiate these down to with them…
100m water resistance?
Standard non-dive spec. Don't get it wet.
I was surprised when I saw this, AD advised me to keep my Monaco away from water, any chrono in fact, or watch without a screw down crown.
Trash. Modern seals and seal design mean that even dive watches with their crowns unscrewed will still resist water ingress up to 100m or so.
You can get your Monaco wet, you can go swimming with it.
In fact, you'd more or less have to be a professional sat diver if you expected to go below 100m depth
In a conversation with the head of Oris, I asked why the Diver 65 continues to have a screw-down crown even though it's only 100m WR. He said because the myth that a screw-down crown is necessary is still perpetuated often enough that it looks bad if they don't include it
Money back guarantee?.
I’m more in the habit of keeping leather straps away from water and/or chemicals and usually it’s the beater that get worn when car washing/maintenance is involved.
I’d be lucky to below 5metres in water let alone 100m.
Yep, while I don't mind wearing a watch in the wet it's really the leather strap that I would be more concerned about, especially in salt water or chlorine
All of this does depend on the seals being replaced at proper intervals of course - a 1000m-rated watch with old dried up seals won't have nearly the water resistance of a 100m-rated watch with up-to-date seals.
out of interest how often would you seals checked or WR checked?
If I'm planning on doing a bunch of water activities, yearly. Otherwise, seals should be changed during any normal service
My Aquagraph laughs in your ADs face and operates underwater*
*Though I wouldn't try it obviously
Yeah not sure how you could properly pressure test the rubber button covers
