    Stopwatch for next week, possibly.
    And the summer release.........the softly-whispered 'Forum Collaboration' Special???

    The Jack Heuer 85th Birthday Autavia was shown at Baselworld. This is something else.

    I thought it was still officially un-released? We saw images of it in a dealer catalogue, but that was quickly embargoed. Haven't seen any official mention of it yet

    There was also that watch with a new movement that was spotted on Biver's wrist at some event a few weeks ago, but I think it was billed as a Carrera so I suppose that would disqualify it from this particular mystery

    It was outed by a few publications like MonochromeWatches. While it hasn't been promoted or advertised by TAG Heuer yet, it was included in their Autavia book:

    From what has been discussed about that new movement, it doesn't look like it would be this year.

    I'd say stopwatch. Maybe a new version of a rally timer (Autavia dash) or something like that.

    This sounds like the Calibre11 special. Am interested to know what this could be....

    Don't know. I am also in the dark on this one as well.

    That said, I fall on the Camaro camp of hopefuls.

    I was referring to David's second post for what is coming later, not next week.

    Regardless, that apparently is not it either.

    Me too ! Camaro hopefuls !

    But if the thickness matter then it wont be our in-house movement i guess.

    Perhaps the part that makes me hard to pull the trigger on the autavia is the thickness.

    Have you tried it on? The thickness is not so bad, just like the bezel width is not as it seems in the photographs.

    I tried it on. Its feels a bit thick for me. Not that its a deal breaker. But definitely not a plus point for me.

    I tend to bump into things when using thicker case watch.
