    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    Re: The Monaco Club

    After a month of tough deliberation between a grey dial monaco LE and the Rolex submariner, i've decided to go with the monaco (however the sub is now my next target!). Now the hard part is waiting for it to ship from the USA to Malaysia. I've gotta start taking up a new hobby or something to focus my attention elsewhere :) Can't wait to take that first wrist shot to share here.

    That's the vintage model I'd want.
    As nice as the idea of having a Calibre 11/12 watch would be, the reality is that isn't all that great a movement and that grey and red is just so good looking.
    The vertical hour batons give it a more unique look and I love how they've kept the numeral arrangement in the sub-dials all the same.
    Cool.

    Thanks Andy. I recently sold my Speedmaster because it really just didn't have a fighting chance against the Monaco and Silverstone - I am too much a car guy and Heuer buff. Generally I am a big fan of perforated straps, but for whatever reason don't care for the perforated strap which comes on the grey vintage. Eventually I would like to pick up a vintage Corfam strap, non-padded with large holes down the center and smaller holes on each side. In the meantime, I managed to snag the TAG croc strap on the cheap (relatively speaking) on ebay. Purists may cringe, but I think it complements the watch quite nicely.

    I love perforated straps too. I think the stock one that comes on Vintage Grey LE is quite comfortable and looks great. But the perforated croc strap on the Silverstone looks even better. How do you like the Silverstone strap? I think the Blue Silverstone strap would also look fantastic on a Blue McQueen Monaco.
