    Looks great! Decent price too. Just a shame it's 43mm ::bleh::

    I know you disagree with me about size Rob, but the reason I go on about it so much is that I'm a fan of TAG Heuer, but they make very few watches I can actually wear. There's just no way I'd be able to pull off a 43mm watch unfortunately (nor would I want to even if I could). It can be a bit frustrating when nearly every single new release is ruled out immediately.

    Fun looking watch. Bezel is meh.
    TAG Heuer reaching back to the ‘80s 1000 although I don’t believe the orange 1000 has ever been ackowledged as a genuine release.

    43MM is big for a three hander, pity they don't make it in a 43mm and a 41mm or 40mm. I'd take the 43mm though.

    Yup I think it looks good too :thumbsup:

    43mm is about right I guess. ;)

    I like that it has a proper buckle as well, no silly NATO nonsense.

    In the F1 side, I immediately remember McLaren's colour in this watch. ;)

    In another side, I'm somehow seeing a "basketball" color theme, which still looks very cool and sporty in my book :thumbsup:

    Website says the bezel is ceramic, which is a surprise!

    Black PVD screw-down crown? And other various scanning issues and capitalisation in the text.

    Looks cool.

    So there is an orange fabric strap too. Based on the CAZ101AG and CAZ101AH discussion, it seemed there was only a yellow fabric strap.

    I actually really like this watch. (Except the size).

    But then if I had to compare it against another watch in my collection, it would be my colourful summer watch - the Squale 1521...

    Both Swiss made
    Squale has 500m water-resistance vs 200m on the TAG
    Automatic ETA vs Quartz on the TAG
    Oh, and the Squale is cheaper

    On the plus side, the TAG has a ceramic bezel compared to the aluminium on the Squale. And you can't have the Squale in orange (unless you hunt down a limited edition they did). But then I suppose this is sort of limited isn't it? What does "online exclusive" mean?
