There's an interesting new model coming this week.
...but don't empty your wallet out entirely, because you'll need it again in the next couple of months

So many great models this year is starting to merit this meme...
What if they are already empty?
That's why I thought I'd give you a few days notice. #begborrowsteal
Hooray ! Can't wait !
I'll give one clue (and no more because I'll get in trouble). It's not a Carrera, Autavia, Monaco, Grand Carrera, Aquaracer, Formula 1, Monza, Link or Connected.
I'm so poor right now, but I'm excited anyway Awesome clue...I'm hoping for A Chronosplit re-edition!
Ooh, Goodwood FOS is in two week's time. Possible tie-in?
Hmm... what could it be then? Silverstone? Skipper? Camaro? I'm intrigued now. Key question for me, though - can you tell us if it'll be more or less than 42mm?!
EDIT: Good point about Goodwood, Adam. Silverstone then?
I am relieved it is not a Carrera. Theft no longer required.
Please not a 20mm thick "Camaro".... Please not a 20mm thick "Camaro".... Please not a 20mm thick "Camaro"....
Well they DO have the tooling for the last Monza.
Same case in stainless + fresh dial = 'Camaro'
As I read this, watching the 24 Hours of Le Mans coverage I noticed an ugly Camaro-looking thing on Justin Bell's wrist....
Justin Bell has often been photographed wearing a TAG Monaco, for the past couple of years, so a change is fairly momentous. A leak of the new model on the wrist of a possible ambassador?
Thank God, no - it's an "Omologato" Derek Bell model watch. Up-close from the front the case looks like a not-half-bad Camaro tribute though; unfortunately they took a page from TAG's book for the dial and put some silly stripes across it.
Much of the appeal of the Camaro is in its slim profile - unlike the Monaco (which has its own charms!) the squared-off case design almost disappears onto your wrist, as if it's a part of you.
The Monza is cool from the front but is unfortunately slab-sided and feels huge, and I highly doubt TAG's modern tuna-can design philosophy would translate well to the Camaro shape.
Some of the Omologato schemes are nice but they are all based on the same small movement and the sub-dials end up 'pinched' in the centre of the dial.
Ah yeah I've just had a look at the website (never actually heard of them before) and they're a little gross. Quartz too so it doesn't really matter how they look.... I will say that on closer inspection, the Camaro style case is quite nicely done though
The only thing left is Alec Monopoly.
That thought went through my mind too.
Could be a stopwatch. It's been a couple of light years since they did any, and you need one for the hill climb.
