    They have serious sound issues, even on some studio review videos. But the funniest thing was that first Basel video with Ariel sitting in his pants - what was he thinking!:confused:

    I wish JCB wouldn't whack has arms against the desk when he's wearing such expensive watches! It was bad enough watching him tap the Hublot with a pen that time...

    Time and Tide videos are quality, and Felix brings a touch of 'everyman' chic to the other chaps more cultured stylings.... :D

    @Calibre11 is there any more coverage of the Gulf F1 coming?

    Is the dismay at the Calibre 5 Autavia maybe partly because people have switched their affections from the Carrera range and now see the Autavia as the untouchable idol? Because thinking about it there's already Calibre 5 and 7 Carreras.... but then again maybe the difference is they look good... I mean the Calibre 7 Twin Time is a nice looking watch. Maybe if there was a Twin Time Autavia it would be more agreeable?

    I thought the carrera calibre 5/7 were old man watches...

    Well like I said earlier, though I disagree with it the three-hander Carreras make enough business sense given the iconic appearance of the Carrera - those lugs are unmistakeable. The Autavia, not so much - this is clearly TAG trying to milk cash out of something they only recently began reissuing.

    Milking cash or offering the customer a choice? Depends on perspective surely? After all, if personalisation (ie choice) is the new black then why shouldn't they give the customer what they think the customer might want. TAG is a business after all, I think we sometimes forget this - and if everybody agrees the idea stinks, then it will disappear (like the 2003 Autavia).

    Anyone else notice how he skirts over what TAG Heuer's 'message' is....

    After seeing the short clip by T&T on the Gulf Monaco I just again start to really want a Monaco. Sure, it's funky colours and for a millennial like me Gulf racing doesn't really mean anything "real", but it's sure to brighten up your day whenever you look at the face!

    The Monaco cost a smaller fortune though MSRP for what you're actually getting.

    Indeed, which is why its so good with a world wide release of the Gulf version. It will be available for reasonable grey market prices :thumbsup:

    I haven't been looking at it in that way! Grey market, or even better, pre-owned of the Gulf Monaco would be a joy! MSRP is way to high for them, both in Sweden and the Netherlands...

    Very interesting interview with JCB, where he reveals some hints about his personal health and the state of the watch industry.
