    Sounds a bit like Formula 1 GMT reloaded to me (plus the change in dial color). Not convinced that this will be a huge success…

    It is much more beautiful. I'm not authorized to publish the picture but you'll see in a few months.

    To come back to the subject about these new models, indeed it is a good point that the Caliber 7 is still in ETA.

    Pepsi is not considered "avant garde" enough these days, so it's usually black / blue or grey / blue, or another color scheme entirely. (Not just TAG either, it's everyone making GMTs). Which is too bad but hey

    Pepsi looks kinda 'tacky' if you ask me.

    We always value your opinion dude!

    Pepsi tacky though? Never heard this before. I think it looks killer. But then the only time I occasionally come by it is when I see someone wearing a Rolex gmt. Which I see maybe once every second year.

    I dunno, I kinda liked the Aquaracer Pepsi but when I saw the Batman version I thought I liked it a LOT better. The red is a bit.... chavvy.

    Really sharp looking piece the twin-time version. A bit misleading info about the movement though from the time and tide making it sound like TAG does a lot of work on the ETA movement?

    Yeah....but why is 24 at the bottom not the top?

    Pepsi is very tacky, rolex gmts are super generic. Im really not a fan of pepsi bezels in general, but the bright ceramic on the rolex is definitely the worst execution.

    I think pepsis look great on a tan leather strap. No better GMT combo imo. On a metal bracelet maybe the coke GMT master II has the edge.

    Let’s hope so - it would be a much needed revamp for the Autavia 3-hander line…

    „My“ TH boutique, for example, has removed these from display completely to make room for series that sell better. Bit of shame what’s going on with these models since I still think that the value proposition (for a chronometer from an established Swiss brand on a dedicated steel bracelet) is there.

    It’s just that their naming was complete nonsense… ::screwloose::::rant:

    EDIT: I think the GMT version should also address the issue of the bracelet's endlinks adding additional millimeters to the already 50mm L2L (Do I vaguely remember a resulting total of 55mm from endlink to endlink?)

    I also remember them wearing larger than their case dimension would suggest

    I can imagine TH want to show off their flyback chronograph and a pilot’s watch is best suited for that. I just don’t believe they’ll sell. Wait and see.
