    I'm not much for this #savethecarrera nonsense, but on this occasion I have to concur.

    one of the manager here showed it to me last week as someone special ordered it. It looks way nicer in person. Im talking about the all black model. The red devil printing is actually way nicer in person and abit embossed.

    I held one in my hand about 2 weeks ago. What can i say ? I like the black and red combination. But i am not much of a Man Utd fan. Plus i dont think the indices are red lume. It would be cool if it was red lume.

    EDIT: I checked the website again and it was clearly stated red lume indices. I certainly cannot see it when in store. So if anyone decided to purchase this model, your red lume photo are highly appreciated. Thanks

    Ask him if he can get you the leather strap. Hopefully this model's will be cheaper than the one from the Heuer-02t.

    I did tried. Unfortunately this one is a limited edition to xxx/1000 according to the picture that my friend sent me after their TH meeting. So definitely TH office said its not available for order. So I donno what's going to happen if you own this watch and you accidentally damaged the strap. Maybe its a different approach if you own one.

    I tried to order the black rubber and alligator strap with red stitching, FC6400, from LVMH service division in New Jersey for my CAR2A1Z while it was being serviced but was told that strap was not available for purchase for my Heuer 01 as it was exclusive to the Manchester United Heuer 01. They did however kindly offer to sell me the either the black, red or white rubber straps as well as the steel bracelet. This was in May 2017. It looks like the brown calfskin may also be offered on the original Heuer 01 from the recent TAG Heuer picture.

    If you can get someone to go the extra mile for you and make an exception and order the strap you want, that is terrific. I am not being critical but I do wish that you could order any strap you want for a Heuer 01/02, etc. as long as it fits, much like you can with the Connected Modular 45 watches.

    I would get a Carrera but not the Man U one.
