    Yep, does absolutely nothing for me either. Doesn't look well balanced, more of a mish mash of styles. And too expensive. Am sure there are others who will love it, though.

    in a smaller watch I think a simple flat black dial might work. I really don’f understand what this ‘designer’ brings to the table other than hype and a name for some aficionados. He should stick to designing puffa jackets for the man bun brigade.

    I thought the Fragment Carrera was well done, just too expensive. This one I felt had some potential based on TAG Heuer's initial marketing images, but the real life photos aren't flattering at all to me. Have a feeling these will take some time to sell, way too expensive for an F1. Especially when compared to the Carrera 160 duo.

    I had a good laugh when I read this post: https://www.instagram.com/p/CC3HcrvA75J/
    "Tag Heuer Fujiwara Tofu Shop 藤原とうふ店 Initial D Limited Edition, created for the JDM boy racer in you. Stainless steel bracelet useful for making tofu or sweating during cornering. The white indices are a special off white colour blend, like Fragments of Tofu. Very well thought out edition."
    Anyone who's familiar with the Initial D Anime/Manga will get the joke. ;)

    I have no idea what I’ve just read. Sounds like the author was on some good LSD though.

    That dial really is very flat. It's an odd watch. I don't get the demographic. I like F1s a lot, but this one is strange. I'm confused by the sub dials, does it have a running second hand?

    Probably not, the runming seconds is at 6 on the H02

    Hiroshi Fujiwara is the real life uncle of Takumi Fujiwara who is a DK touge racer, and is the younger brother of Bunta Fujiwara who was a former racer and went on to establish the famous Fujiwara Tofu Shop. :thumbsup:

    The Fujiwara Clan is supremely popular I must say, even outside Japan :p

    Now that is TAG Heuer connected again to another “famous motorsports legend” ::rimshot::

    No it doesn't, just like the Viceroy Autavia H02.

    Did you just make that up? Bunta & Takumi are fictional characters. LOL.

    We could all use a good humour and some smile today :D

    BTW, I’m a big fan of the Corolla AE86 & Initial D!

    That Instagram account has a picture of this "Dato". I couldn't help but notice how strange the indexes on this one are.
    Calling out the Dato experts for authentication.

    Here's another Dato for reference. Notice the white indices on this one; they look like in the other Carreras.

    That Dato is probably OK, but the chapter ring is mad fake (and a huge eyesore)

    Yes, that's what I thought too.
