What say you almighty leader @Calibre11 ... will they keep making them?
I think so. It's in what TAG Heuer call their 2017/ 18 Catalogue- all of the watches in there are current models, so I'd say this just shows what will be available for the first half of 2018 before the new watches arrive.
So i contacted an AD to order the excellent looking textile strap for the Red Bull. I said no when he told me the price is USD 450 insane prices... for approx USD 800 I can buy the waz1010 on nato strap (not the exact same strap but still...)
Pictures stolen from the Internet to show how sexy the red bull strap is though. Who knows maybe I will still pick one up eventually...
USD 450 for a textile strap? I'll make em for 250. How many do you want?
The AD price is crazy, TAG's calf and croc straps are usually about that price and often cheaper. Suggest that you monitor ebay, good chance one of these straps may come up at a more reasonable price.
I do love the look. I'm a straps guy and that's how I would of bought mine.
^ That is one of the "old prices", when the straps were very expensive. The "new" prices for straps are much more reasonable.
@Jim Dollares You should ask your AD to confirm if there is an updated price. Otherwise, try to contact TH Customer Service in your country, to see if they can sell it to you directly.
When did TAG's prices on their straps come down? I recall them being quite expensive, but in the last 2 years or so I've purchased from my local AD and the prices were quite reasonable, under $200 - IIRC.
I believe they were lowered under Biver's tenure, as part of the overall realignment of TAG Heuer, as an LVMH "affordable luxury" brand.
Some prices were decreased and some were increased. Annoyingly, the 300SLR strap was one of those that increased and I hadn't pulled the trigger on the replacement I needed. It went from AUD368 to AUD450!
Glad I got my spare at the original price.
Mine wasn't a spare, it was a needed replacement!
Thanks @Hubert I did not know about that, will ask again and mention that.
