Coverage at ABlogToWatch:
Oh my, I guess I totally missed it but just realized that the bezel is not ceramic! At this price point and no ceramic, definitely a show stopper for me.
BTW, here is a look at the JH LE:
That's the one for me!
Monochrome-Watches might have outed it prematurely. Here's the back from their article:
Yeah, I thought these were under Embargo...Monochrome are good guys, so perhaps they had clearance. I'll leave the photos here for the moment.
Wow that bracelet has more bling than Mr Monopoly!
This is so much better. One of my biggest problems with the Autavia is the huge numbers on the bezel, and this looks a million times less 'vintage'.
Ha ha... I like both, but to me the JH85 looks better too. It takes from my choice during the AutaviaCup.
Of course we all know the real reason the Heueristas have a problem with the Autavia.... it says TAG on the rotor!
But seriously, this looks so much better. Glass back and a rubber strap and we'd be in business!
Are you familiar with Gshock?
Pah,horrible nasty cheap things...
Okay, I was joking about the rubber strap.
Posted a new thread on featuring an homage to Jack Heuer by Patrick Dempsey featuring the new Autavia
The man, the myth, the legend
Between Autavia, the JH85 is the one to get. IMHO.
TAG Heuer's webpage for the new Autavia says that it's available in March. Is this true? Is the watch available right now?
I pre-ordered mine a few weeks ago from my Authorized Dealer, so I notified them yesterday that the TH website indicates its availability is in "March".
As of today, they haven't provided me with an arrival estimate, but they did confirm it has been "ordered".
It's the new "See now, buy now" philosophy.
Makes sense really, I had to wait six months to see the Heuer 01. Creating a buzz and then saying it will be available next year might work for some companies admittedly.
