Re: Monaco with printed markers is 100% original!


Congratulations! This is good news for you and very interesting for all of us Monaco fans. Could you email me Severine's address as I woul dlike to ask her about my 3 reg Monaco will teh so-called waffle dials and small hands. It would be excellent if we could get to the bottomof the 3 reg saga once and for all!!!

Again excellent news.



: Hi all,

: Thanks for your input on the authenticity of my
: Monaco 73363 with glossy blue dial ( for a
: photo see the discussion on Authenticity 3
: register Monaco from June 9 and 10th).
: I have had quite some contradicting input
: however.Nobody however could tell me whether
: it was authentic or not. Most thought that
: the dial is a replica.

: I have contacted TAG Heuer Switserland today by
: telephone and e-mail with my question and
: they asked for the photo. I sent it to them,
: emphasizing that the dial has printed
: markers and no applied steel batons.

: This is the answer that I received back: Dear
: Ron,

: I have just discussed with our senior
: watchmaker who confirmed that the
: dial fitted on your Monaco calibre 7736 (not 15
: as mentioned in your
: e-mail) is original. We have effectively
: produced (mid 70) this model with
: a dial on which the markers are printed.

: We would like to take this opportunity to
: inform you that due to the age of
: this timepiece, some parts such as dial, hands
: are definitely out of stock.

: We hope to meet your requirement and remain,
: Best regards.

: Severine.

: Apart from the fact that I am extremely happy
: having bought this Monaco ( the colour of
: the dial and the registers are just stunning
: and are different at every angle) I guess
: this changes the discussion on three
: register Monacos.
: There have effectively been made three register
: manual Monacos ( Valjoux 7736) with dials
: without steel batons but with printed
: markers.
: Unfortunately Tag heuer is not able to tell me
: how many have been made. They have been made
: in blue, grey and black.

: I will be pleased to make more photos of the
: watch if of interest, maybe also to add to
: the picture gallery on the website.

: Regards
: Ron
