Love this concept Carrera made by our friend @Ara inspired by the vintage Heuer red box
I would buy one in a heart beat!
Reminds me of the TinTin Speedy but I’d surely get one of these first I like it even more than the Carrera Montreal
I'd love to see them come in a similar box, rather than have it printed on the dial.
I'm afraid the glassbox would ruin the peripheral checked design.
Gotcha! I knew you’d say that But I can pass it off, this design speaks “racing” to me, especially the with red accents and chequered flag which is equvalent in spanish as “Carrera”
We can have @Ara produce it with a plexi crystal.
Carrera Calibre 11 Edition! Let’s GO @Calibre11 @Hubert
Hubert! Let a guy dream!
DC, you’re too kind. Didn’t check C11 all day and just saw this. You guys are the best.
Here are some C11 exclusives.
Just kidding, but here are a couple of progressive behind the scenes components I played with before getting to the final version for posting.
Love the design sir @Ara I’m good with the white dial and black registers The leather strap is spot on!
@Ara I think it looks better with the black subregisters.
When compared to the silver picture, did you have to reduce the size of the registers to fit the checkered flag on the white dial?
I agree, and maybe it looks better without the white markers on the red ring.
@connected1976 made this Ara concept dial for the TH Connected, and I did some minor changes to it.
@Ara , what is your choice between these two versions?
Ummm wow. #2 please. The simplicity on the outer red ring looks better clean and lacking the white markers.
That’s super cool and am pretty shocked how quickly you guys put that together. I absolutely love it.
I agree with you: I think it looks better without the white markers on the outer red ring
So this is how this #2 dial looks on the TH Connected Modular 45, also on the black leather strap with red stitching . I love it! It’s easier to make it happen in the Connected world
White faces on the connected never seem WHITE, that one looks vaguely pink, maybe just the pictures.
I prefer the white dots on the red ring or it needs bigger lume markers to make the hour stand out, or maybe set in a black dot.
I'd be curious to see how that looks as a reverse panda, black face & white registers.
Yes. Had to fiddle a bit but I can’t remember how much I reduced the dial and usually want to go from inspiration to idea as fast as possible. The picture by @vintage_heuer that DC reposted was so good that I couldn't stop thinking about it. Looked like a magazine cover.
Woke up early today and got the subdials and ring proportions to match the 160th Carrera Montreal. Also moved the lime plots to the red ring like @Pitfitter446 suggested -- also gone is the date.
Want to see the all black version? I have that right now.
The first one I did was full red but it was way too intense.
