Thanks for the link
No problem. You know the saying, "Without photographs, it never happened!"
Is there any non "high end" watch with micro rotor? By that I mean below 5 000 USD...?
I really have no idea what might come out to be honest, last year I predicted (somewhat tongue in cheek) a Monaco Heuer02 Tourbillon in a 24 case. Didn't happen, maybe this year?
Surely we'll get some new Aquaracers to replace the blue/green camo ones?
Keep an eye on Watches TV who also cover the shows for videos.

I really like the high production quality of Watches TV
Absolutely, they don't cover TAG much, but they aren't sniffy about them either...
In addition to Heuer-02 expanding to Carreras and Link, let's not forget that we will probably see the introduction of the new Heuer-03 XT movement in a Carrera.
Another contributing factor to thickness in modern watches is that the display case back's sapphire glass can be quite thick. Omega in particular have watches where the back glass adds 1mm to 2mm in thickness.
Display casebacks is such a terrible feature on many watches. Wow, I can look at my low grade mass produced eta movement without decoration
Glass half empty!!
But a nicely engraved solid caseback is so much nicer, just my opinion bro
Only got one display back, but I like it (Heuer01)
Do you think we will see that Hubert? The 03-XT in a Carrera? I'm not sure. It will happen, but will it happen yet? Won't they want to keep that for Zenith for a little while longer?
I'll try and take a semi-decent shot of the back of my Calibre 36 .
And that makes sense because that movement is a lot more pleasing to look at than the standard eta 2824 where the manufacturer often just adds their own rotor.
Again with that one I am also guessing that the movement is a lot more pleasing to the eye?
I definitely agree with you! The Heuer 01/02 are a lot prettier than some standard ETA which barely has been modified or finished. I don't really get why they have glass back on those "lower end" movements...
Calibre 36 is TAG's name for the movement used in the Zenith El Primero. Definitely a cool movement, but what I missed when I was looking into buying my first "good" watch was actually what I perceived as a lack of finishing on the El Primero.
Speaking of something completely different: Will we see the new generation of the Connected at SIHH, or is it more likely that TH will have a separate event for that like last year?
The rumor was that this movement would also debut in a TAG Heuer in 2018, so hopefully we will see it at Baselword. Otherwise, maybe later.
Feels like too early for a new generation? Perhaps the smaller version of the modular.
