    That is what so bad about it in my opinion, i like it so much. But now if i get it, everyone will think either i should get the formula one at presumeably cheaper price or everyone thinks that i am crossing the heritage boundries that autavia should not be non chronograph :eek:

    It seems to me like TAG Heuer are regressing to their scatter gun approach of the pre-JCB days. This was one of the very things that JCB did not like and in his early interviews stated that the ranges would be reduced and rationalised.

    I'm at a complete loss as to their strategy these days. Lucky for me the only TAG Heuers I don't own, that I would like to own, will come from the second hand market.

    There is nothing new that interests me.

    I'm also a fan of the new Autavia- having said that, I wonder how much of the reaction would be different if it was a blue/ red bezel? I'd like it more with that bezel for sure. Anyway, here is the Calibre 5 version

    So it looks like a dive watch but isn't a dive watch?

    It's just nothing to me. I would not have even noticed it in a stand.

    Nothing wrong with you at all. Watch taste is very, very subjective.

    I prefer the 5 because it looks like a 1970s dive watch

    When I saw the little 5 sec promo teaser of the Monaco (Hopefully) my nipples went hard.
    Then I saw the Autavia GMT and there back to their normal droopy self.:(

    Wonder no more! I photoshopped a Pepsi and a Coke bezel for fun. I also got rid of stitching. I hate thick stitching and just couldn't let it go.

    No problem. My "Hulk" tweak is a little sloppy but good enough to get the job done.

    You got it!

    The more I look at the photoshop mock-up, the more I wish TH had gone with a bright Pepsi bezel with a more vintage looking, not stitched calfskin strap or something.

    Who knows, perhaps they saved the blue/red color combo bezel for an Autavia chronograph at some point in the near future...

    Well, hulk is my favorite for submariner. But its great you can help me visualize how it went with Autavia.

    Turned out for this autavia the coke and batman still preferable for me than the hulk.

    Once again, thanks for the photoshop. :thumbsup:

    My pleasure. It's fun and reassuring in a way to know that with some small Photoshop tweaks we can quickly answer design questions.

    I found a couple of other pictures on Instagram a few hours ago, but David asked me not to post them, as this is under embargo.
