    Looks great to me. If the green was as green as this is aubergine then I’d have still had it. Congrats to all that have/ are picking up!

    Agreed. I would have picked one up at the time of release if the green popped like the aubergine.

    Yes sir, payment made today. Hoping to get it in hand this week only. I just showed pics of the watch to my 2.5 yr old and he liked it - to the extent that he's already laid claim to it :D:D

    Looks great in the wrist roll video, not so much in Adams pics...

    Just noticed one thing. The smoke on the promo photo gives a nice purple touch to the strap. I now wish there was purple stitching around the textures on the strap. Views??

    Was talking about that with the guys at 5th Ave when I went to see it. Should have been a racing strap anyway. But at least this one has a dark purple lining whereas I think the green one just had a plain lining (or maybe tan, don't remember)

    It's more metallic than in the wrist roll, but I've also finally got my phone camera lens cover replaced and will have better photos hopefully this weekend.

    Maybe if the purple stitching is really dark, otherwise I like it the way it is. Purple is loud enough, the strap keeps it a bit more understated.

    But I do agree with Adam, all the Monaco H02s would look better with racing rally straps. That's one of the reasons the Gulf is still my personal favorite of the H02 Monaco line.

    Faded vintage blue dials were apparently part of the inspiration for this watch. :rolleyes:

    Nice shade - more subtle. Some patinas on the vintage Heuers are just amazing. There's a 1133 on C24 right now with a near perfect tropical fade

    Yep - I didn’t like the croc with the green much either. It looked far better with the brown rally strap from the 1970’s green Monaco.
