    I got the automatic, but want to alternate between the two, any suggestions on how to get in a watch winder?

    I'm afraid that I left the TAG 45 ownership family this afternoon. Had the watch for 5 months and overall found it to be "ok" but not that special. I'm frankly glad to see the back of it even at a substantive financial loss as it's not considered a great trade in option. Not the best buying experience for me by any means with constant charging / software glitches leaving me with flats first thing in the morning on several occasions. The fact that they sold it without a charger in the first place was laughable. Google Android is not best suited to iPhone (obviously) and there is seemingly a complete apparent lack of interest from TAG in developing an iPhone app to help. Found the screen / faces ok but the thrill of installing new / third party ones very quickly wore off. Again not much support from TAG in providing regular new faces for update which was disappointing. My overall ownership experience was not special from the outset, although in fairness I did like the design which generally looked good in the wrist and attracted some compliments. Functionality was not a patch on my previous Apple Watch 1 though. I'll think twice before buying another connected watch (or TAG product) in future based on this experience.

    Put the "assembled" mechanical watch in the winder at night, while you leave the Connected module charging? That's what I would do.

    I bought extra (overpriced) lugs and bracelet so I can wear both or switch fast

    Nothing yet.

    Regarding Oreo and Android Wear in general, I've only seen this:

    What are your guy's thoughts on the Tourbillon Luxury Kit? I already have the connected 45 and recently found a dealer who has the Luxury kit and is willing to part it out and sell me everything minus the watch I already have. Is the 02T worth it? Thanks

    Nice. How do you like the Rose Gold lugs against the titanium body?

    You know what I did not even for a moment think the Rose gold lugs and the titanium body would go well together. Before I went into the shop I was ready to use the titanium lugs full-time with the 02T module or order the black ceramic ones. On arrival I popped the 02T in and to my surprise thought,"Hey this combo works!". I actually prefer it over the titanium.

    How much was it, and where did you get it? I only saw it available as a combo set with the connected 45.

    I found it at Time & Gold in Downtown Vancouver, BC. This is the combo kit. As I already have the Connected 45 watch they were willing to part it out to make a deal. Price on the kit is $21,450 CND plus taxes. Dealer took back the smartwatch module, rubber bracelet (I keep the titanium lugs and clasp), and charger for a $2100 price reduction. I already have the brown calf-skin bracelet that comes in the kit so they offered to swap it for the black calf-skin. Then I negotiated price for rest of the kit down to $17,000 CND all-in after taxes.
