Could We be Confusing "White" / "Silver"??
In Response To: Re: White Faced Monaco ()

could there be some confusion about white dials, silver dials and something called "starburst"??

This same confusion occurs in the Autavia world, and just this morning I learned that different executions of the Siffert Autavias (Reference 1163T) actually had different shades of white paint.

H-E-L-P!! There is only so far that you can take this "field guide" / "recognition guide", before it becomes an "idiot's guide".

Just a thought (or two).

: Monacos made, only matt blue, metalised
: blue, metalised grey, silver and black
: (though the black is rare as it was only
: used on a few prototype parkerised case
: versions) there is a rumour that there was a
: red dial version though i've never seen one.

: does anyone know more?

: so when you say white, do you mean white or
: light silver?

: do you have a pic you could post?

: thanks
