    Hi,

    New to the forum here.

    I am torn between the TAG Monaco Calibre 11 and the Tudor Black Bay Chronograph Panda.

    I know they are different watch styles but I can only afford one and both are speaking to me.

    Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

    Thanks

    Dave

    If it’s Iconic that you want, TAG Heuer Monaco Calibre11 takes this one hands down.

    Tag for sure or hold out for a Rolex Submariner no date. Of course this is a tag forum!

    The Black Bay is more of an everyday, go-anywhere do-anything watch. The Monaco is iconic but large and definitely not under the radar, and might not be the watch you want to wear everyday.
    BB Chronos are also getting quite cheap on the secondary market these days, quite a bit under the Monaco's price. About $3500 US. I'd start there, save a bit, then get the Monaco later on.

    Thanks everyone

    I probably should have stated that I have a 2 black bays, a Rolex Sub, Omegas. Etc…

    So I went with the TAG because it is iconic and my 1st chronograph.

    Thanks everyone
