    Hi Mate,

    Not pretty I know, but here is a picture & write up from "On the Dash", which give it some provenance.

    Mark.

    We know that Heuer made look-alike Monacos not only for Diarex, but also for other brands that included Bucherer, Edox and Villard. All the samples shown below have these same elements — closed “4”s, blunt hands and painted markers. We can assume that painted markers were less expensive than applied markers, which may explain the use of painted markers on these lower-priced brands. The case-backs on the watches for these other brands are not marked with the Heuer shield and “Tool No. 033”.

    I wish I could afford to add a couple of variants to my collection, but alas there are too many watches & not enough funds lol.
