You can get a gold connected to eternity.
You my friend should get the gold 1887 ^
Eventually, it will happen. Once ebay allows listing of body organs
Oh wow, I felt it was something "wrong" with it and you put words to it; the subdials are not the size I'd have preferred them to be!
Subdials look perfect to me for this model. Yes, they're closer to the case, but I think that's fine for a 2 register vintage design. I sometimes think subdials can look too close to the middle (Speedy Tuesday being an example, although I still think it's a beautiful watch).
I think the subdials look a bit off, though not terribly so. It's a very interesting watch, but $10k for a steel watch running on one of the most tangibly cheap mechanical movements I've ever had the misfortune of using is just unacceptable. At half the price, it's a no-brainer; at the current price it's a no-brainer for the opposite reason.
Is that the re-edition? Feels kind of fake and lame that they engraved the greeting on the caseback...
Yeah, that weird mirror / clumsy cotes de geneve effect on the dial makes it look fake too... strange they wouldn't have gone with the sunburst effect of the original
I tend to agree that the execution on the dial could have been better. That said, I keep thinking that if TAG Heuer went through the trouble of producing this new case and strap, then more variants will probably become available in the future.
More hit than miss, but for me:
- Dial would be better in a single, uniform finish
- Would look better on a nice leather strap
- Despite being 38mm, looks like it wears big. I wonder if anyone knows the lug-to-lug and thickness (or has a side profile shot)
- Too expensive for what it is and that movement
I like the black subdials, though (apart from them being slightly oval), and don't mind the caseback or the date window, since that is in keeping with a 1970s design.
On other shots Ive seen on instagram during the day the sub dials dont appear oval
Wasnae sure if was the picture or my eyes but the sub dials looked oval to me too.
I think whoever took those photos may have a small wrist - if it's definitely the same case proportions as the 1153 / 1553, it'll wear quite elegantly.
Definitely too expensive for the movement they're using, though. Cut the price in half and we're talking business.
I agree; if they offer a similar model in the future with a price around ~$5,500 US Dlls. I definitely would consider getting one.
Yes, it's a woman wearing the watch
This would be a nice one to re-issue; from @peter_charlie on Instagram
I think it's cool.
I assume this is an indication that they (the former HH department) are continuing and will continue to make small runs of custom watches.
The surprise is that this custom watch uses a proprietary case. As mentioned by others, this suggests the possibility of further future use. It's also a long shot but how about a MK2 Autavia?
Watches like the Pan Europ and three hand Chronoris shows that people do like that aesthetic and the MK2 Autavia would tick all the right boxes. If it didn't step on the toes of the current Formula 1 model that it...
I reckon that's the problem: to my eyes, the current F1 case is a direct copy of the MK2 Autavia.
But that might be the opportunity: use the Formula 1 case, add improved case finishing and pop in the Calibre 11 movement and a new dial. Job done!
What they should've done in the first place IMO - discontinue Carreras with external bezels, keep producing the Formula 1 in the old plasticky case and call the new cushion-case line Autavia
