    Looks like a Blue Strap/ Blue detail version of the new Carrera Heuer-01 on Tom Brady's wrist

    I actually quite like the blue version. Not sure I'd ever wear a watch of this type personally, though. Perhaps if I was a TV pundit on the F1 circuit. It's the sort of thing I can see David Coulthard or Johnny Herbert wearing.

    The strap reminds me of the Bell&Ross BR-01 series. This will dwarf those of us whom have small wrists.

    Looks like the blue strap version has blue hands and batton highlights ;)

    Blue, Orange & Red. Reminds me of the huge choice of straps on the 6000 Series

    As I've said before, not my style, but this has turned out much better than expected.

    I'll be the bad guy.

    The original photos showcased a modern skeleton TH going upscale.

    Now I feel like looking at an ICE watch stand.

    I'd like to see the blue model on a black strap- reckon that would look the business

    I agree; maybe an alternative material to rubber. Canvas? Or something similar to the limited editions that resembles carbon fiber?

    i'm assuming here that they're going after a new segment for the brand with the skeleton alone but those straps....wow. Skeleton watches aren't really my taste, yet i'm OK with this particular face as I think it's pretty sharp. but those straps!

    I concur. I'm also not a fan of skeleton watches. Yet, over time, the Heuer-01 design was starting to become less of a departure to me and have been warming up to it.

    Bottom line, I suspect these straps were also designed to be an option for the Connected watch, since they are shared components.

    I just cant get past the skeleton dial. Its overly complicated and IMO is not a direction that is recognized as TAG heuer
