    So 2020 is the 160th Anniversary of the 'Heuer Watch Co', what do we expect by way of celebrations?

    I'm guessing a Carrera, another Carrera and some more Carreras....

    But I'm hopeful we might see a 35th Anniversary 'TAG Heuer' Formula 1.

    Nah, just kidding.... that's not going to happen, but it will be 35 years of the F1 next year.

    Just sayin'.

    Hopefully they celebrate by changing all dials to the proper Tag Heuer logo :whistling:

    This is like preferring the The Phantom Menace over The Empire Strikes Back.

    Amazing as in another Calibre 17 Carrera or amazing as in 'Haute Horlogerie'?

    I would like to see something 'classic' from TAG Heuer, but I doubt it... it doesn't really fit the brand image, also it would require a bespoke case and everything else, so it would be prohibitive.

    Suspenseful. ::stirthepot::
    Do you know something again, that most of us don't know? Would you advice Heuer fans with a somewhat smaller wallet to hold back in watch investments until the official announcements?:cautious:

    By curious coincidence, I happen to be reading a QP magazine from 2010, which heralded the launch of the 150 Anniversary pieces... 2 x Silverstones (1860 pieces each) and a box set containing an orange Grand Carrera Chrono and a Meredist mobile phone! One would assume the 160th Anniversary would be 'less' of a big deal than the 150th... and presumably the 170th doesn't really get celebrated and it's held over for 175 years...? Except Omega who celebrate EVERYTHING obviously!

    Yes. I'd suggest holding any other your purchases. Official news expected this month.
