    Hi Robrkid,
    Yes, this is a genuine strap from a newer Monaco model (google CAW211D.FC6300 to see it). TAG Heuer Australia sell the strap for around $200.

    The quick release spring bar is a great idea. The leather strap has a small "L" shaped cutout from which the release lever protrudes. You simply slide the lever towards the watch with your thumb nail, then pull the lever back against the spring tension to release the strap.
    It makes strap changes very easy.

    The Monaco Club

    Cheers AussieAlex

    I'll have do the same cos I really like that strap. I tried that watch on also before deciding on the McQueen. Loved the strap and that Heuer clasp. Think ill pop to town and see about picking one up.

    And I get the spring bar now. Thanks for the description. I don't have it on my current Blue alligator strap but ill ask about them too when getting the strap.

    you forgot to mention the deployant clasp ref.

    Wow, it's looks amazing, I recently acquired one of these into my staple but needed some work so it's in Switzerland now I believe, I also had my Authorized Dealer order me the FC6300 strap, I'm glad I did because it looks great on it. Oh, and I didn't forget about the Buckle (FC5014), I already had a new one stored away from a long time ago

    Re: The Monaco Club

    Time to join the club I think! I managed to snag a good deal on a new Calibre 12 CAW2110.FC6177. I've always admired this watch but always felt it was out of reach financially, luckily i've had a few good months at work so with the commission I treated myself. I think it's good to have a reminder of your hard work sat on your wrist!

    On a separate note, there was mention a few posts back about the the Blue version possibly being discontinued, before I bought this I went to Watches of Switzerland to have a look at the Blue one as I was in two minds about which colour to get, the sales consultant told me that they hadn't had the blue one in for months and had constantly been showing "out of stock" on their ordering system which usually implies that the watch isn't available any more and therefore discontinued.

    Not sure what's going on in the UK with regards to the blue version, very strange!

    Re: The Monaco Club

    Hi all. Had a quick question...I have an opportunity to purchase a CW2111 at a VERY reasonable price, and wanted to know if it should be a deal breaker that the strap is not original (disclosed by the seller up front). Thoughts?

    I can't imagine that this watch would stop after this many years. Maybe they're working on an update of it. It's a classic. Maybe we just bought them all?. Ha.

    You can buy a new strap no problem. Personally if it had a worn leather strap I'd buy a new one anyway. As long as the watch is sound the straps will come and go.
