    Whatever they tell you, it's not a CV2014.
    Look, it even says Calibre 16!

    Yes, I'd heard a while ago that this one was coming back. It was a popular model, and I suspect will arrive with a very sharp price

    ...might be a couple of other popular Carrera models from ~5 years ago also coming back with small detail changes- e.g. Day-Date Calibre 16

    Here is a picture of CV2014 for comparison. The 9 o'clock subdial lost its numbers.

    Good eye! I tend to like the new model more without the sub-dial numbers; it's a bit cleaner and it now has an applied logo-shield, instead of a printed one.

    Subdials have now "swirls". The watch also mentions Calibre 16 - it did not on the CV2014 which I decided to wear today.

    Why does the new 2015 model still use the old TAG Heuer logo (where the letters in "TAG" are partially overlapping)?

    The new logo will take time to propagate into the line. Here are some of the 2015 models and they all have the old logo:

    Is Calibre11.com going to have any article on this model refresh? I'd like to know if there are any substantial changes from the previous version, other than the superficial modifications as discussed above.

    By the way, the webpage for this watch says that the TAG Heuer logo is printed onto the dial (under Functions and Features --> Dial); however, the photos in the original post of this thread show that the logo is applied. I was also hoping for a ceramic bezel, but it's aluminum.
