    Yes, you're right about that. Rules are clear:

    "1.2. Only watches commercialised after March 2014 and at the latest by November 30, 2015 – are eligible to take part."

    That fits in with the date that I was given by HQ of "end of November". Perhaps the date that you have is an Australian on-sale date?

    I did notice that right away. This will certainly make it much more exclusive. Given what you guys have said, I think the official announcement will come around November, but will become generally available in 2016.

    Compare this photo

    to this photo

    And it's pretty clear that the one at the bottom is a "Phantom" version of the watch- note the titanium carbide coated horns compared to the standard titanium finish in the top photo.

    Also note the lack of the screw on the side of the horn

    And what do you notice about this photo?

    TAG Heuer is proud to present the latest haute horlogerie creation from its workshop in Switzerland...

    The first manufactured COSC tourbillon chronograph movement created with technical materials under 19’900 chf to offer an exceptional piece within its category.

    The TAG Heuer manufactured haute horlogerie timepiece with a COSC chronograph tourbillon

    Born in 1963 from the imagination of Jack Heuer, the Carrera collection was inspired by the legendary «Carrera Panamericana Mexico Road Race».

    In 2015, Tag Heuer presents a haute horlogerie timepiece with a new manufacture movement – the Tag Heuer Carrera Heuer 02 T Chronograph Tourbillon COSC.

    As per its name, it is the second manufactured movement embodying the new strategic direction of tag heuer. This timepiece is the most affordable swiss manufactured cosc movement ever created available for less than 19’900 chf.

    The Carrera Calibre Heuer 02 T Chronograph Tourbillon COSC presents a supremely clean design revealing all the technical details of this movement in which the tourbillon cage is in carbon. On the dial side, the openworked date-disc is visible. On the caseback, its red column wheel, the skeleton chronograph bridge and the back weight also draw the eye into the mechanism. The modular case built with more than 12 different components opens the creative scope of this brand new COSC tourbillon chronograph designed in a full black.

    So even the luminous material in the hands looks black? I actually like the titanium contrasts a lot more than the all blacked out vader version

    Yes, think so. Black lume, black gold hands, etc. The Vader would be a good name for it!

    I am assuming this is the "production" Heuer-02T (CAR5A8Y.FC6377)

    And this the "Black Phantom" Limited edition (CAR5A8Z.FC6377)
