    Well, it took me 13 years to finally get a bracelet for the Monaco. I've always felt it looks best on rally straps. So you've got time to enjoy yours with that killer blue strap combo!

    I am enjoying the bracelet, gives the watch a very different personality. It has a more macho vibe. But I'm not sure if I'll use it with my McQueen.

    I don't have the new style box that your McQueen came in. So I was surprised and super happy to have gotten a mini version with the bracelet!

    I've seen this style of bracelet on the CS2111 in pictures. But don't know if it's BA0780. I've also seen other reference numbers, such as FAA006.

    Looks like an Aquaracer strap.... with a fake buckle?

    I’m sure the strap is good. Not sure of the buckle. Thanks for pointing it out.

    Strap should smell of vanilla.

    The only time I put the rubber strap on a Monaco was on the 69. Seemed an obvious choice, at least better than a leather strap.

    This bracelet (FAA006) was initially on my Men's Club Monaco when I received it but I promptly switched it out with the green strap for obvious reasons. I definitely prefer the Monaco's on a leather strap but may put it back on just to see how it looks. It is a pretty heavy bracelet--90 grams (rolex oyster bracelet is only 72g). Probably will sell it at some point...

    Hmmm, I recall seeing this Instagram post from June. Perhaps this is the one you bought? Or do all the Men's Club Monacos come with this bracelet?

    Interesting... It might be since I'm pretty sure the MC Monacos did not include a bracelet--just the green strap only. None of the articles or past ones for sale that I have seen mention or show it on a bracelet.

    The Japan edition Monaco comes only with the green strap. If there were a bracelet included, then a different watch box would be given, similar to the Monaco 40th anniversary.
