    I liked when Frederic said "there will always be a blue Monaco."

    That's intriguing on the Calibre 11...I'd love to know how it could work. If he really means remaking an piggy-back movement on a historic micro-rotor automatic movement? Wow, that's a huge call. I wonder who even has the rights to the Buren/ Hamilton base.

    I guess TAG Heuer could always modify the original Chronograph module and add that to base ETA movement, but then it wouldn't have the micro-rotor, which is a key element of what makes this movement different. But that becomes a modified ETA/ Sellita rather than being in-house at a big price point.

    ...what would make sense is a left-hand crown version of the Heuer 02 with two registers...but is this a "modern version of the Calibre 11"?

    Yeah, this was towards the end when Haig was hinting that he wants a new blue Monaco (I assume as a replacement for his 1133B). I bet TH gives him one as a gift. But that guy can surely afford any new Monaco he wants with all the money he'll get from the auction.

    Federic did specifically say they want to have the micro-rotor.

    Next year will be the 50 year anniversary of the film, so I hope that the Blue Monaco brand new Calibre11 with micro-rotor will be fully reproduced.

    For me, it was a webinar from 2:30 in the midnight, so I'm a little sleepy.

    Would be amazing if they release a micro rotor c11!

    I'd be happy enough with that honestly. Think it'd be an absolute banger.

    The world needs more micro-rotor movements of course! Especially if your automatic chrono is gonna feature a display back.... But IMO, not fully necessary for a reedition of the Cal 11 Monaco. The exterior and dial design are more important

    I've been going to Nate & Al's deli since the mid-90s. Sadly, I missed the 2 times Haig met Paul Boutros there to share the McQueen Monaco. Need to upgrade my pastrami on rye game.

    I would've been quite happy with a left side crown H02 Monaco before. But now that Federic has let the cat out of the bag, I'll be really disappointed with anything less than a true modern day C11.

    Well a "true" modern day Cal 11 would be a microrotor automatic base movement with a chronograph module slapped backwards on top of it ::bleh::

    Interestingly, Patrick appears to have been webcasting from his bathroom.

    Maybe he is in the kitchen/bedroom next to his shower corner in his 1 room apartment, probably spent his millions on motor sport and Monacos
