    I've seen the 43mm versions of the stainless bezel cal5 for a while now. I guess the new ones are the 41mm with large indices which were formerly 40.5 with smaller indicies?

    Confusing page, can't see TAG changing the cases from 40,5 to 41mm... what a waste of money that would be. But those catalogue numbers don't relate to current models...

    I've always thought that 40.5 or 41mm difference between the existing models was a mistake on the website. Or maybe it's the early specs for the newer models that are wrong.

    Either way I'm not sure I like the update or refresh. I thought the SS WAY models were perfect how they were especially with the all silver second hands. I was actually hoping for a ceramic version of the dial with smaller indices and all silver hands. Now they seem to have added a colored tip on the seconds hand in addition to the larger indices which gives it a more sporty/casual feel compared to the original which have always been nice and dressy looking.

    Not sure what they've changed on the 'Explorer II' white dial model...

    On closer inspection, the bezel minute markers don't look as if they are painted in (but that could be the photo) and the indices on the dial have been changed from black 'rubber' to polished steel... but that's all I can see.

    Ah, the website seems to be saying these are new 41mm versions...
