    My personal opinion on the new tudor bb chronograph between panda vs reverse panda.

    The panda one seems to be more "blant". Can't blame it since the hour marker are all in white as well.

    I have to say the white dial (panda) is looking pretty good in this video. Back on the fence again.
    The video is entirely in German, I don't speak a word, but it has nice close ups of live wrist shots.

    I would expect a panda Carrera next, given this is Jack Heuers favourite, he’ll turn 90 next year and we just had the Dato. I’d be surprised if TH would issue a reverse panda in the coming two years.

    Good find...
    I didn't realise the Crown and Pushers seem quite bulky. Compared to my Tags they look oversized. But I absolutely love this model.

    $7k AUD is pretty good.
    My Carrera Elegant 42mm is listed at $7.2k
    And I class the Tudor above the Tag in Quality.

    Here's another video. This one by Jenni Elle, the German gal who does her reviews in English.

    I agree, it's a good value. I've asked my local AD to put me on the list so I can see them in person. My BB58 and Rolex Sub are both black dials and have a similar look. So if I end up getting this watch, I'll probably go with the white dial panda to have something different.

    Famous for her clickbait video 'The TAG Heuer situation'.... where she stands scrunching her face up like she's been bitten by a wasp.

    Dear Tudor.
    Next time just release your watch as a panda, you would have saved yourself so much grief.

    What is the Tag Heuer situation? Declining due to rising prices pushing the brand out of reach of their core market, while releasing a string of products that are un-competitive at the new price point?

    Time will tell but it sure will be interesting to see how far they can push prices up without improving the product. Marketing and brand does eventually reach a limit in its perceived value in the market. At some point prices might get too high and customers will go to other brands.

    In my three years on this forum, the Swedish retail price for a ceramic calibre 5 Aquaracer has increased 50%. The exact same product but 50% more expensive. And now with the new line prices will increase even further, still with no actual improvements of the product.

    Edit: I did the actual numbers and it is "only" 42% in three years :rolleyes:

    Only 42%? So what are you complaining about?
