    Something coming tomorrow apparently.... says an iconic model re-imagined. Looks like a Monaco to me...

    Monaco connected? Wonder if an apple watch would fit inside a Monaco case?

    Looks like PVD in that photo, but could just be the lighting. I'm sure I will not like it but I'm glad there's a bit more still to come out of Baselworld - so far it's been rather dreary

    I take it we're not allowed to talk about the Monaco reproissue yet...

    The new pushers have always bugged me on the current models.

    Building on the long heritage of 3-hand Autavias I see.

    Has anyone confirmed how the GMT operates for Carrera Chronograph GMT?

    Lazy, lazy, lazy! Looks like TAG just took some old F1 GMT and put the Autavia name on it ::facepalm1::

    What?! I actually like the modern pushers way more than the original!

    Would be cool, but feels like that would be to push the heritage of the Monaco a bit too much, at least for me.

    We're not having a Monaco Connected until we have the Monaco 24 Heuer02T and that's final.:mad:

    Now, given that it's clearly a Monaco, and it is 'an iconic model', and given that it definitely looks 'black'... how excited are you guys about this release?

    And how excited are you that it's a (deep intake of breath) reinterpretation, which basically means I'll probably like it but none of you will?:D

    I can't wait for tomorrow, the moaning is going to be epic, I just know it.::psy:: You're whining about pushers now, this is a reinterpretation baby!!!

    Go Jean Claude!:eek::eek::eek::eek::eek:

    Please let it have the new TAG Heuer logo on it....::bleh::

    Hmm I'm not usually a fan of the black PVD coated, but sure, I'm ready to be happily surprised!

    It's not just lazy - it communicates a spectacular lack of imagination. Imagine how a new Autavia GMT chronograph would have gone over, that would have been awesome....
    instead, we get the same movement as the Aquaracer GMT 3-hander but for I bet twice as much MSRP

    Was this a last minute effort after they found out nearly everyone else was unveiling a GMT as well? :)

    That Autavia GMT is horrible.

    I don't think so, Bamford don't make anything that isn't PVD coated do they?
