    Boys, need some advice. I was rummaging through yhe emplty box of my Monaco Sixty Nine and found an empty warranty card hiding behind the bubble wrap. I'm guessing the seller was trying to portray this as a "watch with full papers set" and thought leaving an empty card would do the trick. I'm not sure about the warranty card though. It's not a plastic card, but rather a hard paper card which flexes more than plastic. Is this supposed to be authentic?

    What year is that from?

    Some of the older watches had cardboard warranty cards. Here's one of mine in cardboard, purchased new from an AD in 2004.

    I have another one in cardboard from circa 2009/2010. Again bought new from an AD back in the day. It looks like yours.

    So being made of cardboard isn't a tell, one way or the other. I imagine it wouldn't be too hard to create replicas of these older cards.

    The Monaco Sixty Nine was meant to be 2005/2006 releases, so I'm guessing the grey card would be more applicable. My main thought was about the cardboard card - which seems that it was indeed used in the past. Not planning to do anything with the empty card though - no real value till I get an AD to stamp it.
