    Had a question over the weekend about the early TAG Heuer-branded re-edition Carreras which was news to me.

    After the pretty Lemania Heuer-branded re-editions, the next iterations were branded as TAG Heuer, using the Calibre 17 movement and with a larger 39mm case. I hadn't appreciated that there were two models with the "Daytona" rings- almost identical.

    Essentially the same watch, but with a tachymeter scale and Jack Heuer's signature on the back

    Good find! Those Daytona Ring Carreras have been under-appreciated for many years.

    Maybe this stoplight will raise their profile, or at least the Jack Heuer edition to a more desirable level.

    Thanks DC, I was able to secure the watch over the weekend! I had been kicking myself a couple weeks back for just missing a full set CV2113 but then this CV2114 turned up :D
    I'm having it shipped to a friend in NYC so won't have it in my hands before May unfortunately. Will post pictures as soon as I have it.

    We look forward to seeing it! @Yago noted in his e-mail that the seller thought this may well be a Japan LE...would well be.

    Here is another "undercover" Jack Heuer LE:

    This is reference WV5140

    Finally received the watch today. Very pleased with it. 39mm feels perfect. Great condition, appears unpolished.
