    I liked it too, however they sold out in Australia before I got a chance to try one on.

    It's a nice watch, but a 43mm without a bezel, it is quite large.
    If you are used to the larger Carreras and other >41mm watches - it's not of a problem.

    Isn't Drive Timer what the new Carrera Heuer 01 has on the dial, the Red Bull one?

    I wasn't really aware of this watch, it's one I might have dismissed as a fake had it turned up in 'that' thread... it's quite nice though.

    I think Id be ok with the size, I wear a 44mm aquaracer a lot. Really I need to find one in stock somewhere to try on!

    No I know, I just wasn't aware of it, and it doesn't 'look' particularly TAGy.

    It doesn't look like a mutant, you mean.

    Well, no... but it would look better on a nice rubber strap.

    It looks very TAG to me. A clear, legible dial, good design and colour coordination.

    I think the Muhamad Ali edition is based on the same watch.

    Goes to tell you the Drive Timer is very underrated.

    I think so as well. At 22mm lug width, the tire pattern rubber strap of a Carrera would work well.

    The Ali watch also shows how wrong a design can go and how to ruin the original concept of the Drive Timer.

    LOL ! Exactly what i thought. Now that someone remind us of this drive time, it wasn't that bad as the Ali version (no offence to the Legend himself).
