    Hi there. Was just re-reading the article (http://www.calibre11.com/2016-tag-heuer-carrera-heuer-01-collection/) on the new Baselworld releases of the Heuer 01 and noticed that you mentioned the Black Phantom model is the first time TAG Heuer have used ceramic outside of the ladies' collections. What about the Calibre 1887 ref: CAR2C90? This is termed 'Carbon Matrix Composite'. Would you deem that material to be different from ceramic or just a fancy name for ceramic? I notice both references use '9' for the case material.

    On another note, the rose gold/black bezel model could not look more like a Hublot if it tried. the similarities are uncanny.

    Thanks for the informative and detailed articles. They are what I really enjoy about Calibre 11 and are the source of much of my knowledge :).

    Hi Mr. Orange, yes, I thought of the CMC when I wrote that- the CMC is mainly carbon fibre rather than ceramic, but they're both composites..
