    That’s a Daytona, Speedy and probably Carrera ;)

    I thought the one to the right was Omega as well :unsure:instantly took my thoughts to Seamaster 300 ( but movement probably looks nothing like it)

    The TAG x Porsche partnership has me reminiscing about the 2017 Porsche Club of America Omega Speedmaster. As I'm a long time PCA member, this watch was available to me, but since it was limited to 99 pieces, not sure if I could've gotten one if I had wanted. However, at a price of $12,911, it was just too expensive for me to consider.

    How do you guys think it compares to the new TAG Heuer Carrera Porsche?

    The TAG Heuer PCA Monaco looks way much better. ;) The Omega PCA Speedmaster just looks like a black and yellow version of the original. Nothing really different that’s geared towards a PCA or Porsche from the outset. I like the TAG Heuer Carrera Porsche Chronograph way better :thumbsup: Much more authentic :thumbsup:

    The Omega feels like a very lazy design that has even fewer ties to Porsche. Yellow accents cause some Porsches have yellow break disks... is there a connection between space traveling and Porsche or why does it have 'grey side of the moon' engraved on the caseback?

    Yes, you can tell the left one is a Daytona due to the screw-down pushers. The right one looks like a Carrera due to the Carrera extended lugs.

    They pop up every now and then, usually with a hefty marked up asking price. Here's one for sale, asking $16.5K USD.

    Agree. I was very excited when the PCA 55 Monaco was released in 2010. However, the Monaco Gulf Grey had also just been released and I was dead set on trying to get the Gulf. Couldn't get both, as the PCA 55 was too similar, plus I had gotten the C11 Monaco Vintage Grey just shortly before.

    The Omega Dark Side of the Moon series has technology that is superior to the TAG Heuer Carrera. But it never really interested me much. This PCA Grey Side of the Moon had my attention though, it was quite different from anything in my collection, I liked the PCA connection & use of yellow. But ultimately it was just too expensive. So I never considered it seriously. I do like the looks of the new Carrera Porsche better as well, but the Omega is the technically superior watch and much more rare at 99 pieces.

    No, don't think there's a connection. The Speedmaster was originally designed to be a racing chrono, before it ever went to space. I suppose they chose the Side of the Moon, because it's one of Omega's most technologically advanced. But your point is taken, "moon" and Porsche don't really go hand in hand.

    LOL. I'd be surprised if that was the reason, I don't think it was. But who knows...

    Just making things interesting :D

    Atleast TAG Heuer didn’t made the pricing of the new Carrera Porsche Chronograph absurd up to the moon :confused:

    I sent a mail enquiry end of 2017 to PCA for availability but declined to purchase $ 12911 + 130 shipping to NL as I was on the fence between this one and the upcoming Apollo 11 50th anniversary. Also import duties and tax would have made it a hefty total bill.

    Where is NL? Didn't think that the PCA would sell this watch to non-PCA members, let alone outside the US.

    I liked the look of the watch, especially wrist shots like this one. But just couldn't get over the price, plus its a little larger than I prefer.
