This is the best I have. Certainly feels smaller than the 45mm, but at 43mm is no lightweight
If that's the new flagship 43mm model, then I like it much more than the current CAR2A10 and related models. The current ones seem a bit too busy with big numerals for both the hours and the tachymeter bezel. I'm happy the new model has simple hour markers.
I would be even happier if they made 41mm models with the Heuer 01.
Here's one more
Hmm, does look possibly thinner there. Design is too contemporary for my tastes but I can't say I'm not intrigued. Might have to stop by the shop later this year when they're in...
Can you check whether the bracelets (steel and/or titanium) for the 45mm models will fit into the 43mm model?
I'll try, but they're not giving out any info on these...they're not part of the official Basel releases...that's what TAG Heuer wants to focus on
I think Hublot are talking about a strap initially (a little like what Montblanc did)
Did you know if this a new steel bracelet? Or just metallic connectors to the new leather strap?
Any firmer news on the Heritage line-up?
Is it going to be classic Carrera, Monaco + special editions?
I'm thinking long term of course because it seems odd for there not to be a CAR2110 (i.e classic Carrera with 1887) in the premium Heritage line.
Or perhaps its CH80 from now on instead?
That looks like a titanium metal band to me.....
Doubt it's titanium as it would probably cost too much for the Connected watch price range.

They look really good.
Quick look at the new 43mm Aquaracer
I reckon @Osmosis will be right on that one
Not really- I get the sense that they know in broad terms what they want to do, but I wouldn't expect that its all planned and detailed out for the next 5 years. If the Monza and Autavia don't sell, then I wouldn't expect them to keep going for the sake of it.
But yes, I expect that the Carrera, Monaco (only 1 ref will be made) will be there, plus a new LE every year or so.
Calibre 1887/ Heuer-01 production volumes are the issue- I spoke with someone at TAG Heuer yesterday who felt that once production ramped up they would still like to supply all their own chronograph movements...but that at the moment it still wasn't possible.
Also caught up with Christoph Behling yesterday- lovely guy. He's been the main designer for TAG Heuer for years now and confirmed that he also designed the Carrera Heuer-01. He felt that the modular aspect of that design now made more sense given there is now a range of these watches out there- so you get to see the benefits of being modular (i.e. that new models can be efficiently produced only changing a few parts).
We also talked about the size increase on the Monza. He felt that given the sporty nature of the new design relative to the more classic/ conservative design of the 2000 Monza, the larger size made good sense.
