    Remember this Carrera from early 2013? It was first shown as a prototype while TAG Heuer perfected the method of manufacturing the case. IMG_0780.jpg
    A regular reader sent through some great photos of his watch that you can see here: http://www.calibre11.com/close-tag-heuer-carrera-1887-cmc-carbon-matrix/3/

    What struck me was the change to the case from what we saw two years ago- as you can see below, the finsh has changed from a fairly anonymous /plain finish to a marbled finish

    It's amazing.. Worth every cent.. Doesn't even feel like you're wearing it.

    That is a very cool piece indeed, I love the symmetry in the dial created by turning the Cal 1887 on its side as well, reminds me a lot of the Daytona

    Congratulates, they are an amazing timepiece and I love how each of them is unique in their pattern.

    I wear mine several days a week as part of my normal rotation and it always amazes me how light it is on the wrist.

    I agree, I'd like to see another CMC case, but in a smaller diameter.... <=43mm :).
