    Got to know yesterday from the AD about most likely Monaco releases for 2023. I'm sure most of the big boys here would already know about these.

    1. A matte black case with grey inner dial and contrasting grey sub dials. LE of 500 pieces. Apparently this was meant to release in Oct 2022, but has been pushed back. Already has a waitlist as it is basically a confirmed piece.
    2. A white dial with blue accents / hour markers. Similar to the Carrera x Porchse release earlier this year. Again an LE of 500 or 600 pieces.
    3. 3x different skeleton dial Monacos. Non-limited edition, but most likely special edition (like the Monaco Gulf). 2 of these would be titanium based models, and the other one would be an all black with turquoise sub-dials (my AD was particularly excited about this one). Apparently the skeleton models are not like the Only Watch / Riviera model.

    All are meant to be H02 movement.

    Like the sound of the white and blue.

    Oh yeah I forgot about that grey one... haven't seen the others. Hope you're right about the skeleton Monacos being different... but wait a minute. I thought skeleton dials were old hat...?????

    The skeleton is still a concept I believe - things might change for sure. I guess the best bet is a Watches & Wonders 2023 announcement for these. I wouldn't mind a skeleton though - but it definitely would lack the racing DNA.

    Many of us have seen the renders of #1 for over a year. The other two are new; I have not seen those yet.

    I've heard there will be H02 skeletons joining the standard range as well. Not crazily colored like the Riviera, but probably a similar structure.

    Can someone DM me the render of the black/grey one. I'm in the middle of returning my Mario Kart for store credit in Harrods, so just wondering whether that can be put towards this Monaco if it appeals to me.

    @YG_Rulz, have you received the Singapore Monaco yet? IIRC, you were expecting in November?

    Good memory. Yes I did get it, but the previous owner really abused the watch. The sweeping second was loose when I got it and eventually fell off and is stuck. I'm keeping the watch unwound to avoid damaging the seconds hand. Going to the AD tomorrow ro get it checked for local repair, or worst case it goes off to LVMH:(

    Oh man, that's terrible. Glad you got the piece, but sorry to hear about the issues. Hopefully you get it up and running soon.

    Thank you, hoping that I don't have to send it to Tag. They'll definitely get me to do a full service!!!

    Sorry to see that. You've had a run of bad luck with some of your recent used purchases, the Monaco 69 with the "glue like stuff" on the dial and now this one. :oops:

    That's true, but it also tells me that not everyone has the time, intent and/or means to care about a watch. Makes you appreciate these delicate things even more.

    White with blue is interesting - kind of a reverse McQueen.

    But really disappointed that TH appears to be turning it's back on the Calibre 11. Only the 211P remains...

    Is it anything like my Siffert Monaco idea that I did using the Bamford configurator?

    I want my royalties and consultancy fee Freddie…

    I agree. Might be naive of me, but I'm really hoping for a new Cal 11 to come up. A C11 skeleton would be awesome!!!
