    IMG_2061.PNG sure looks like it- don't know much about this one, but looks to be a black dial?

    How did that sneak under the radar?

    From what I can see the hashmarks are Orange rather than Red (which makes sense)- but I would have thought the hands should also be a matching shade of Orange? The strap is lovely

    No idea...heard nothing about this at Basel (sometimes you catch a glimpse of something that you can't photograph) and all anyone seems to know is this photo.

    [​IMG] Just compared the the 'old' TH CAW2113 and the visual improvement is significant.
    Totally agree with David's comment on the strap.

    The only thing is... the blue strap makes the blue on the dial look a bit wishy-washy. But apart from that it's nice..

    It kind of is and isn't. The red detailing in the new version, assuming it is kosher, is at odds with the Gulf colour scheme.

    Of the CAW2113 and the CW211A, I have always preferred the latter for its black subdials and I think the new one would benefit from that too.

    Ah but the black subdials kind of make it look more modern, which is bad. Cream is good, black is bad, like TAG is bad and Heuer is good.

    I've got a funny feeling it isn't real anyway. It looks like someone has mocked up a possible new Gulf model. Let's see what news comes forth in the coming days and weeks, I may be wrong.....

    They are aren't they? :D

    And 'Heuer' is the appropriate branding for a 50 year old watch, after all.

    I'm pretty sure it's real. The photo was taken at Basel by an authorised dealer, who are always shown more watches that the media

    I wasn't intending to cast dispertions about Govberg but I find the colour scheme rather odd. Red accents on the hands mixed with the Gulf orange. Time will tell.... :)
