A place holder for when the post goes live in the future ...
Created placeholder thread for David's article ^.
This looks like the least interesting of the five really. I know we've all made rash decisions off of the poor quality renders, but there seems to be a better render out there now and it looks pretty basic. Don't think it's going to inspire emotions like the other three so far and the super dark last one...
The countdown is on.
Word is that you could have manually adjusted the date on your phone to much later in the year and seen the official releases for all five watches.... I think the above is a fix to that - not actually 90 odd days away.... I wish I had of seen the next ones before this happened. I spent a whole morning in Australia trying to refresh they grey/blue into existence on my phone!
Way tooo long!
Wow, that is long! The next launch will be about mid Oct if my math is correct. With the previous launches coming back to back in May, June, & July, this big gap to #4 takes away the momentum that was being established.
Also, if the rumor that @heuer1860 heard from the TH Ginza Tokyo boutique was correct and the next launch is in Japan, I wonder what the event will be? By my quick estimate, the launch will be after the Japanese F1 GP race weekend. But the TH Ginza boutique was also saying Sept and that's not correct, so who knows if it will really be launched in Japan...
Yeah, this could be a placeholder timer. Yesterday the countdown was overlapping with 10 and 12 days. Let's hope we don't have to wait till OCT.
Yes, this #4 launch is 7 days after the F1 GP in Suzuka...
Aha aha just got of a plane and a bit jet lagged.
Commented on @Hubert link to the timer before I saw all this comment above.
With the way the timer has been going of late and the comments above, I’m just gonna say who the Fxxk knows when it’s gonna be released.
Hi, can someone point me in the direction of the renders if they still exist?
Can't seem to find them anywhere. Thank you.
Just search for the product code with the letter Y.
Thanks Hubert, appreciate it.
I suspect the designers of watch 4 may have gotten some inspiration from these Bamford designs.
^ You could argue there are similarities on most of them, except the 70s edition.
Similar to the 80s
Similar to the 90s
Similar to the 00s
Similar to 10s
The majority of the Bamfords look cool (IMHO), like this one for example.
Watch #4 was the least interesting to me based on the leaked pic. But if the actual reveal exceeds these Bamford designs, it could very well be another pleasant surprise. Such a long wait to the next reveal though!
#4 is the safe choice. It's the most conservative. I think it will age well.
IMHO #2 > #3 > #4 > #1 > #5
From the leaked renders, #4 looks naff to me with lots of overlapping elements.
#5 looks to be the most conservative. I'll e interested to see what colour the subdials really are as they look like a sort of smoked silver.
My order of preference is currently: #3, #2, #5, #1 and last #4.
^We have similar taste, that's my current order too based on what I think 4 & 5 will look like. But who knows, after seeing the real reveal photos the order could easily change.
If you look hard enough on the Internet gents you can see the official Tag Heuer releases for 4 or 5 - there was a time hack to do with the countdown and it revealed all 5 in official release. Spoiler alert - 4 is boring AF.
