    Well, if this comes to pass, then Bicester will no doubt be getting a ton of Heuer 01s in to sell!

    Is it wrong that all this talk about H01 being discontinue makes me cherish my H01 even more ? By impulse i bought 2 H01, and always on the edge to sell one of em. But upon this news, i don't think i want to sell any of it.

    :thumbsdown:

    By the way, i haven't own H02 yet, but i personally think that is it far more superior movement in comparison to H01.

    Welcome to C11 @Johan63.

    Firstly, let's stop with the myth about the 1887 (Heuer 01) being a Seiko movement. It is incredibly old news and we all know that TAG Heuer heavily modified the calibre that they bought from Seiko. None of us here are interested in rehashing that bit of TAG-bashing.

    Secondly, as I understood it, the Heuer 02 is a fully integrated chronograph not a modular movement.

    I believe it does make sense to phase out the H01 in favour of the H02 purely due to the improved power reserve. Also TAG Heuer seem to be keeping the Calibre 16 as their movement for their 'cheaper' Carreras.

    Good, I'm glad this wasn't a trolling post about the origins of the 1887.

    I disagree about the H02 being modular though. The Calibre 12, for example, is modular insofar as it is a base, time only, movement with a chronograph module bolted on to it.

    The H02 is a fully integrated chronograph. This is not to say that was not designed with the ability to add further complications in the future though.

    I don't think I have a preference as I have both styles in my collection.

    The 1887s that I own work because the running seconds subdial, at 9, is very discrete so the look more like a 6, 12 layout.

    My Maurice Lacroix uses the Valjoux 7753 which is the 3,6, 9 variant of the 7550.

    In many respects, I prefer 2 register chronographs such as the Calibre 36 or the Calibre 11/12/17 since it would be rare I would need to time something for longer than 30 minutes or so.

    @Hubert, perhaps, this disucssion/poll could be moved to a new thread?

    I'm sure that JCB said that replacing the H01 with H02 was always the plan, so we shouldn't be surprised.

    Here we are... all solid dial variants, I wonder if the skeleton Heuer 01s are going to stick around?

    https://tagheuerenthusiast.blogspot.com/2019/09/spotlight-on-new-arrivals-at-tag-heuer.html

    Also, if anyone is interested in a 2019 Gulf Monaco, I was in Whitby yesterday and the Ramsdens store there had an unworn piece for £3795. Apparently their stock is not on the 'Ramsdens' website because they are a franchise but they do advertise on Chrono24. I was very tempted but I don't have that kind of money at the moment.

    I think I saw one in their branch in Stirling, wether it was unworn I’m not sure, it is a separate company that sells in Ramsdens but can’t remember the name of hand.

    Yes, I think its inevitable that the Heuer 01 will be replaced by the Heuer 02. Always thought it was an odd decision by JCB to delay the CH80/ Heuer 02 back in 2014 when TAG Heuer wanted to focus on a single movement rather than shut-down the Heuer 01. I get that with products designed several years ahead, it was probably easier to delay the movement that was not yet launched, but it felt like a short-term decision...which history will prove it was.

    What's your take on the skeletons David, do you think they will keep the 01s?
