First Photos: Fifth and Final Monaco 50 LE (2009-2019)

Here it is, the fifth of the five Limited Editions, celebrating the decade 2009 through 2019 . . .

So we had the following models:

  • psychedelic green guy for the 1970s
  • blood red one for the 1980s, celebrating racing
  • light gray / concrete model for the 1990s, capturing the growth of industry and technology
  • black one, with the heavy circle-in-the-square motif, for the 2000s.
And now this fifth one, in charcoal / near black. Notice that the case is sandblasted, so that the crown and pushers are the only polished elements. An interesting way to complete the series, with the theme of minimalism.



: After all the excitement of the Monaco Piece D'Art, introduced
: this past Friday, it appears that tomorrow we will get back to
: the 50th Anniversary Limited Edition Monacos.

: As a reminder, we saw green for the decade of the 1970s, red for
: the 1980s, silver / blue for the 1990s, and black for the 2000s.
: Interesting to imagine what we will be seeing for the current
: decade, 2009 to 2019.

: Must say, this tease is a real tease . . . difficult to gather any
: good clues here. Could it be a black-coated case or is this
: simply the result of the very dark lighting on this tease shot?

: Jeff
