    Hey guys,

    With the growing of speedy tuesday....or grand seiko wednesday or tourbillon thursday (or tuesday, i forgot) i am curious is Tag Heuer have their own thing ?

    Or is it too cheesy ?

    Cheers

    To sum up all ideas until now:

    1. Monza Monday by Big Adam - I like it very much.

    2. TAG H. Thursday by Hubert - Not bad at all.

    3. #savethecarrera by Elbeik - On Saturday OR Sunday ?

    4. Carrera Christmas by Big Adam - totally do-able, given how many carrera(s) are out there.

    5. Unfair accussation of cheesy marketing by Drunken Monkey - I am totally feeling you bro !

    I don't care what day it is we just need to #savethecarrera.

    Bar the blue, 43mm Heuer 01 (which I still don't like enough to buy) I am very turned off by all the recent TAG Heuer releases and developments.

    I want to see the Heuer 01 or 02 in some classic Carreras and not these Hublot-esque efforts that are gushing out of Chaux-le-Fonds.

    Nah, it's not the accusation, it's the hypocrisy (and blinkers) that gets up my arse.

    "boohoo, company x is just marketing and hot air for show offs"
    "oh yeah, check out my man on the moon Speedy for SpeedyTuesday!"
    So, what's the difference?

    And before I get misunderstood as some grumpy old man who has trouble sitting...
    I have nothing against things like SpeedyTuesday. It started rather innocently and developed organically and that's how I think it should be.

    FYI.
    I tend to wear my Carrera on a Monday. No real reason other than because I'm mostly in the office that day so big exposed crystal isn't in danger of meeting the many dangers of a building site.

    Here's a thought.
    The 11th of each month is Heuer/Tag Heuer day.

    Nope. That was probably worse than the 45mm skeletonised model.

    #speedytuesday works because it was organic. I blame myself for not claiming a day of the week back when it wouldn't have looked like a blatant copy :cool:
