Q: How many "Le Mans / McQueen" Monaco's are there ?
A: One More Than Yesterday (and probably one less than tomorrow)
: I hate to be a doubter & there is documentation that could be
: researched for verification but have all the Monaco's linked
: back to McQueen on the set of LeMans been accounted for prior to
: this example showing up.
: A second thought that popped into my mind was if the McQueen link
: is genuine then its not a given that this watch was a LeMans
: movie item. More questions than answers really ...
: Did everyone notice the watch has 3 incorrect hands in place ?
: Yes thats right, all three chrono hands are the wrong profile ( two
: black register hands & the red central seconds hand ) , as
: if a watchmaker without the intimate knowledge of Heuer parts
: has serviced & replaced with items he had in his own stock.
: Strap yourself in folks - this is going to be an interesting ride
