    A modern classic. And minty fresh too.
    Looking forward to seeing on some bespoke leather.

    How many carrera(s) you have in your collection now ? Seems a lot. But you can never have too much :thumbsup:

    I was craving a black dial, and looking for a v2 or perhaps the 3rd vintage reedition with the elephant Tag Heuer logo.
    I stumbled on this one - and you know how it goes when you really feel like getting a new watch but the banks says NO, and the only remedy is to flip one from the stable.

    Not that much, or at least, not too much. 6, most of them part of the permanent collection.

    Is it wise to purchase anything a couple of weeks ahead of Baselworld?

    Depends. If it is a good choice then yes.

    Now that we have Baselworld behind our back, I get back to my issue.

    Well, I didn't wait for the Baselworld releases and took the plunge.
    I found a NOS Calibre 16 Juan Manuel Fangio limited edition and grabbed it instantly.
    I couldn't let it go; price was discounted. Used ones fetched more.

    This one is one of my favorite 41mm Carreras in Calibre 16 guise.
    Custom strap of course, as it came with a bracelet.

    Congrats !

    You changed the strap, taking it into whole new level IMHO.

    The hands and pushers are definetely my favorite for this line.
