@Hubert as a telemeter owner, your thoughts on the use of this case?
Fantastic watch. I'm guessing Japan only?
Nice! Would be perfect without the Pikachu logo on top and the word Fragment down to the right
Spot on review!
I hear you. It does nothing for me. I haver never liked the Telemeter.
I only have the recent reissue Tele 18. But quite welcome TH making further use of the case. There are aspects of this new design I’m not keen on (the branding logonon the top) the nonsense fragment label etc. But the use of the telemeter case itself is certainly not one of those aspects.
As to previous point about the tele case being chunky - i’d have to politely disagree. It is the daintiest watch I own and in fact that was my complaint after purchase was that it seemed flimsy and tiny. There is no heft to it. But aesthetically I find it a really handsome piece. I just wish it had a better quality build.
Hope they put a half decent strap on this one and that the job lot of old times straps has been depleted
I would have preferred the use of a 41mm case; rather than the Telemeter's. However, I am tentatively optimistic / hopeful that this model won't carry over some of the Telemeter's weak points, since it doesn't have the curved edged dial of its predecessor and since it has three subdials, I hope their sizes are a bit smaller. The glassbox dome is tall, but there not much we can do about that.
Yes, I'm with you on this too.
As of now, I am planning to order one.... although my wallet suggests otherwise.
I like it a lot. With new designs like these, TH is going to end my photoshop crusade quickly.
It looks nice and it's a huge step in the right direction for the Carrera as it stands now. But, details make the watch.... and the details sink this one. Get rid of the logo at 12 (which reminds me of the Waffen SS logo more than anything else anyway) and the "FRAGMENT" eyesore on the dial. Put that nonsense on the caseback.
The "Carrera Heuer 02 GMT" sounds like it could be interesting, putting that into the Autavia could fool me into buying another TAG
No. It will be available in some countries. However, it will be pretty limited.
If you don't like this one, then you possibly might consider another release that should be coming soon for the US market (not a Carrera).
We need a Watchmaker version of this ASAP.

One might say whatever about details of the design. Despite that, I am really glad to see new usage of the 02 movement and this is a sign of many good things to come I hope!
@Hubert you tease
I'll repeat my earlier question because I haven't seen anything yet, but does anybody know if there is somewhere we can sign up for news or to be notified when this is released for purchase?
Dream come true.
So cool that they got the Heuer 02 movement to fit into a 39mm case.
Didn't seem possible based on how swollen the modern Autavia looks. Looking forward to more information on this. Gives me hope for more heritage aligned designs in 2019 from TH.
Really good info. I wonder if they’ll improve the straps? TH are certainly moving in the right direction with improvements. The strap is one area I’d like to see them sort out.
And here we have it Ladies and Gentlemen; the Calibre11 post of the year!
I quite liked the first look of the watch, but that logo and the text on the side destroys a bit of the overall feeling of the watch. Looks like some kind of Bamford and I have to admit that the proportions of the dial don't fit my taste. However, super cool that we see the Cal. 02 movement in more watches and especially the some more "classic" looking watches.
Please note that I don't say anything regarding the strap. My parents always said that "if you don't have anything nice to say it's better to say nothing at all"...
