Monaco :"waffle"Reply

Hi all,

Its evening here and I'm enjoying a spicy Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon from our Western Australian winery, Moondah Brook. Very tasty. To top it off "Gone in 60 Seconds" is on TV. Nick Cage is about to poach that awesome GT500....

Anyway, my post on the Monacos that is missing went along the lines of:

A few suggestions for these dials:

1. Fake. Outright, although I think this is un likely: why have we not seen any Cal11/12 or Cal 15 fake dials too?

2. Heuer spare part, manufactured post cessation of Monaco production?

3. Late series orignal dials: is it a coincidence that on some examples we've seen lately, the cases have been refinshed & "tool no 033" is absent?

{....Nick just got that Shelby very sideways - yeah....}

4. Can we get the info/pics in front of a Heuer old timer like Hans, and see what his view is?

Important qualification: I dont own a 3 reg Monaco currently (sold a wonderful one-owner one last year, & regretted it ever since), although I'm after a nice blue/white reg one!

Cheers to all
