    Well, it's Christmas morning down here in Australia and NZ, so while the kids are basking in the post present opening euphoria, a quick message to everyone here to wish you a great Christmas with your family and friends.

    Also, a big thanks to everyone here on the forum for making this such a great place to talk about watches. This has been our first full year and it's been a busy one...let me give you a couple of examples.

    - RedBull TAG Heuer- did you know that this forum was the first English media outlet to talk about the new F1 deal? There was an article that was published in German, but no-one picked it up. @rage2 did read it and posted here, which I then reposted on the Autosport Forum. From there, they called Red Bull, got official confirmation and then posted the story that was picked up around the world.

    - New Autavia, new Monza and CH80: regular readers already know some of the cool things coming down the line in 2016 and 2017, thanks to the first of what are planned to be a regular check-in with JC Biver on the latest news from TAG Heuer.

    So what's coming in 2016? Well, a new website to start things off. This will be the first total rebuild in about 5 years and I think it's coming along really nicely. There are a couple of features there that I think will be totally unique and give even better information to collectors on their watches. There should also be a forum upgrade too, even though I think we already have the best platform in the business.

    And none of this would matter without the great people who take their time to contribute to the forum. Many thanks for your passion and enthusiasm, and I promise you that this will be an even better place to hang out next year than it has been this year. Onwards!!

    David

    Among the other great things to be thankful at calibre11, is the wonderful community it has brought together and camaraderie among watch lovers it has nurtured.

    Happy holidays to you all, and May the Force be with you, always.
