    That's awesome. When I was in Tokyo in 2004 we spent an afternoon on Odaiba and happened into the Toyota showcase. There were some JGTC cars there but not the rally cars. I think the Denso SARD Supra was there iirc.

    It's a shame (to me) that TAG Heuer have never (as far as I can see) done any models that commemorate the watches that they have acknowledged that they have a great dept to - the 80s-90s 1000 series Divers.

    Yes, you can see design elements in various of their modern models and the Aquaracer is the spiritual descendant (well - as much as possible), but it's got to be said that the classic Diver style has never really gone out of fashion, although I suppose Rolex basically have the monopoly on the basic look.

    I might not be in a position to buy a modern TAG commemorative Diver - but I think I'd certainly start saving if one appeared in the line up!

    I would like to see a reissue of the 1000 too. Although one size only please - or one mens and one ladies. But not the myriad sizes they used to do.

    Myriad? I think there was 4. (42mm, 38mm, 32mm, 28mm). These days they'd probably just do a mens and ladies (if they did multiple sizes).

    Actually - thinking about it - the 'Jumbo' size (Monnin case) looks sufficiently different to the standard 'submariner' case style that I think they stand out. (the bezel doesn't go outside of the boundary of the case).

    Lots of colour-schemes though... :D

    Doubt they would make a ladies one now.

    it is odd they've not done it, but would it have been such a stir as the 160 years? Is the market for the 35 years as big in terms of collectors and the models they’d celebrate.

    personally i’d doubt I’d even look at one. Never mind buy it. I realise it is a divisive opinion - and I sincerely don’t wish to offend those in the community who enjoy the tag part of the brand. But i suspect they know that in terms of “LE spend” That they’ve hit the mark - at least buy getting the HH reissues out first. Judging buy overwhelmingly positive reviews, feedback and even hype in the usual suspect watch blogs.

    I’m not sure a reissue quartz Kirium would have had the same effect.

    Probably give it more years, like 50 years, and there is certainly something we should really celebrate about! Or probably TH doesn’t want to highlight this since the true beginning of TH’s history started in 1860 ::confused2:: 160 years Heuer vs 35 years TAG Heuer ::confused2::

    Maybe 35 years is an odd number, but they have form for celebrating 40 years, so 2025 will surely be the time to celebrate TAG, and then it will be 165yrs of Heuer which is not a big deal.

    I suspect a Kirium re-issue would have to be an automatic as one of the problems with the Kirium was that the bracelet cost a lot of money to make so it would have to be priced quite high to make sense

    Yup I agree with you sir @Aquagraph ! Every 5 years, more reason to celebrate and make a hype, do publicity and marketing! ;)

    i’d actually love it they made a modern version. Maybe slightly larger as the originals are a little dinky today. Last time I wore one to the office there were questions about why I'd stolen my wife’s watch

    But I really like the design. Certainly the most elegant of the bracelet sports of their era. I don’t think they’ve bettered it since. First Tag I ever bought. They must be due a 25th Anni re-issue of those then? ::bleh::

    Only if you have the smaller version, the 38mm ones look quite chunky on my 7.3/4" wrist!

    i’ve no idea what size it is but it is about the same size as the Tele18, if not a tiny bit smaller. Then again most of my watches are 41mm, 43 or 45.
