    Ha, Ha - My apologies for the lapse in etiquette!

    Took these in a bit of a haste and on a cloudy day unfortunately. Tried to get an angle with natural light to demonstrate the difference in green shades. If only the green actually was as equally brilliant as in the advertisement...

    Still, I love it. Not perfect but maybe it's an eye of the beholder thing.

    Hmm, that looks a lot better than the one I saw.. this photo from earlier in the thread better represents what I saw in the boutique.

    Are you sure yours isn't a fake... :eek::D:p

    All, here is the photo bomb as requested.

    Just couldn't send further pictures without a little more effort from an amateur with an iPhone...

    Best to all, stay safe.

    Sure, but a flat colour bezel will never match a starburst dial at all angles- the whole point of a starburst finish is for it to change colour depending on light. The only way to do that would be the same finish on the bezel.

    Agreed, but I think you need to see one to understand how mismatched it really is.

    True. No substitute for seeing a watch in person

    It's not like you see the difference when you move it about, it's apparent right away that the dial is a completely different green to the bezel. And those particular greens don't really gel well to my eyes.

    Some of Michael's photos give a completely different impression... but perhaps the lighting in the boutique made it worse than it really is?

    It probably would have been easier to make a bezel that toned in with the dial rather than the other way around.

    Coming back to this subject I discovered this model while surfing...as a sucker for green is anyone familiar with this piece?

    TAG Heuer Formula 1 Chronograph CAZ1010.FT8024

    Anyone own one?

    Thanks, M

    Not sure I understand, that model is black. Or maybe you did not mean that it was green, just that you like it. I think King @Hubert has one

    I very well might be color blind for green...or maybe it was just the lighting in the film...



    I got really interested quickly...no wonder I couldn't find green in a search...Still @Hubert, a good piece?

    Thanks, M

    Looks very black to me. The video description even says "The black face..." :D

    This ^ one is a black dial. The YouTube's still preview-image has some reflections that might have made you think it was green.

    Hi, my local TAG Heuer boutique in Singapore is telling me the CAZ2016 green dial is no longer in production and they can only get it by transfer from another country after I pay a 40% deposit. Does that sound correct? I'd really like to see the watch before committing to purchase though. Thanks for any advice.
