    Seems to be a quiet release. All 23 are apparently sold out and we've seen this look before. :whistling:

    @Hubert took a pic while at the GP this weekend, maybe he'll share it soon. Not sure if it's still under embargo or not.

    Seems it was released under the radar. I was told Nov 16th was the release date by the Las Vegas Boutique, but that was a while back and the date might've changed.

    But again, we've seen this look before. Recall how similar last year's Macau Carrera LE and Las Vegas Carrera LE were?

    Kind of the same thing with the China Monaco and the Las Vegas Monaco. But the Las Vegas version has a more premium box and a more premium price of around $9500. Supposedly a different reference number too. Not sure what else is different.

    Hmm, yes I get that it's the same but I'd still like to see a photo... and find out the part number.

    Wait for @Hubert. Also, @thingziliketoo has a friend who bought one, so maybe he'll share pics too.

    My friend should receive his next week. I will get a few pictures when he brings it in to work. He’s been on a Tag spree as of late. From the pictures he shared it looked just like the China LE as @Mspeedster stated above. I wonder why there was no big fanfare about it.

    I believe CAW211AD is the model number

    +1 for waiting anxiously. By the naming convention, seems like TAG is following an excel spreadsheet. First mark all steel C11 & C12 Monacos from CAW211A-Z, then start with AA, AB. AC, AD .....

    I wonder what became of the missed original steel numbers like 211F, G, H, etc.

    Here's the picture. Steel case. Very similar to the original CAW211C.

    Here's the recent China edition (CAW211AC).

    Yes, I believe that is correct.

    Looks like the strap's center holes are larger on the China LE?

    Thanks @Hubert. I believe that's the wooden box it comes in, right? Does the plaque say anything more than TAG Heuer? Anything on the box or watch with Las Vegas on it?

    The strap for the Las Vegas looks like the Gulf 211R strap (FC6401). The box seems like the wooden Atavia box, except theres a TAG Heuer plaque instead the "AUTAVIA" inscription under the insert

    I suppose TAG is gaining points with the sustainability crazy people by "upcycling" the old stock. And while you're doing that, why not earn a decent profit too!!!

    Good catch.
    But that one is blue & orange.

    The Vegas model's strap is more like FC6440, used on the CAW211T Gulf First Victory. As seen here on my CAW2113 C12 Gulf Gray.
