    Congrats on your SMQ Monaco. I've added you to our owners' list: https://forums.calibre11.com/thread...-calibre-11-caw211p.23229/page-9#post-1746039

    Sorry to hear you have this issue as well. I sympathize with you and @Snowydelrico, we'd all want our new purchases to be perfect. But you've got the right attitude, enjoy your Monaco in good health!

    @VirgileF mentioned his father's C11 Monaco Gulf has the issue too. I suspect it could happen on any C11 Monaco, not only the McQueen. The sub-dial hands not resetting to zero doesn't seem to be as common (or I haven't noticed it mentioned much before).

    Fortunately in my case, none of my C11 or C12 Monaco's have either of these issues (knock on wood).

    Just received my Monaco calibre 11 back from chronograph causing small seconds to jump repair.
    Anyone see yet another mistake from the technicians at lvmh ?
    Does this now make it a Frankenwatch?

    Oh my god, are you serious. And this is not even the first time we see them putting a c12 rotor on a c11 watch ::facepalm2::::facepalm2::::facepalm2::

    Begs belief. But I’m not really surprised, just par for the course with them.
    Have they swapped the movement out for a new one do you think?

    That is most likely the safest bet. I dont think most of TAG's generic movements have a serial number unique to the movement so it makes a lot of sense that they dont put the same movement back in the exact same watch, their process is probably just to put the correct calibre in the watch.

    But does the hand still jump? If not, maybe you got lucky and got some one else's functional calibro 12 :rolleyes:

    I think they would tell me if it needed a new movement as they did with my autavia they couldn’t fix

    So now you have to choose between keeping the wrong but functional movement or sending it back to them and hope they put a non functioning c11 in there again :D:D:D:D

    How could that even work with the cal 12 having the crown on the other side?
