    Here is a new Calibre 5 Carrera. It's a special edition for the Japanese market of 400 watches to mark the partnership with Japanese tennis player Kei Nishikori.

    Watch has a titanium-carbide black coating on a steel 41mm case.

    Nice feature: instead of showing the 1st of each month in the date window, it shows "K"

    Looks pretty interesting. Never can go wrong with a blue TAG Heuer.

    I would love to buy this in the USA. Black watches with black metal bracelets are just fantastic.

    First time I can recall TAG Heuer making a titanium carbide-coated bracelet in many, many years

    Aren't the Cara Delevingne black Carreras watches in all-black titanium carbide? The webpage for the watch says: "Black titanium carbide coated fine-brushed steel".

    Japan always get the cool stuff.
    Maybe some day one will end up on the bay.

    TAG Heuer has mistakingly added new women's all-black watches on the men's Carrera webpage for both the USA website and the International website. The new all-black watches are 39mm and quartz, so they are smaller than the current 41mm Cara Delevingne versions. Regardless, I would buy the simple all-black model with the basic bracelet (below) if (1) it had Calibre 5 instead of quartz, and (2) the accents were silver instead of rose gold.

    Why does it still have the old logo on it?

    The black red and metallic blue looks really special when combined

    That's a very good question. I reckon that to keep the costs down on this one TAG Heuer must have raided the parts bin
