    Nice!. I see that the design changed when compared to the Baselworld pictures.

    I prefer the contrasting tachy scale.

    This webpage says they are UK only, which would be disappointing. Can I order them from an authorized dealer outside the UK?

    http://www.thegentlemansjournal.com/favourite-watches-basel-world-2016/

    Four years ago, TAG Heuer made a Carrera to celebrate the 80th birthday of Jack Heuer, the great-grandson of the company’s founder. It was limited to 3,000 pieces and sold out in a flash. That watch’s twin-subdial ‘Panda’ design is revived this year in a special edition made only for the UK – just 250 of these will come to market later this year.

    £4,000

    Could it be possible that the Baselworld variants are still coming later this year for the global market?

    It would have been nice to have an actual panda with a white color and not silver, to depart a bit from the previous versions.

    Not sure which of the versions are final (contrasting bezel vs. matching bezel). I'll look into it, but it would sound right that these are very limited editions for only one market- same as the blue-dial version from last year.

    No, I don't think these will be rolled out globally. TAG Heuer are starting to look at watches made for only certain countries. There is a new Link Lady model that will only be sold in a few markets

    Agree. If I still owned my JH80 edition, I'd be even more miffed than I was when the anthracite and blue editions were released.

    Yes, a starburst white or a very bright silver (not cream-like) would be the one to get!

    I like the silver-dialled version (CV211E) and the contrasting Tachymetre works well, IMO.

    Any word on the availability of these models or new Heritage variants outside the UK? Thanks!

    I note that these are not Chronometers so I am surprised to see that they have the same RRP as the CV5111 and CV5110.

    Yes, I noticed that as well. Same as last year's blue.

    True, although the blue model didn't really do it for me. I prefer the mainly silver dial with blue registers (CV5111).
