    Gentlemen,

    Social media and online forums are becoming platforms for watch brands to reach their core targets.
    We've seen a series of special collaboration in the past few years, most with notable success.

    To name a few, the Omega #speedytuesday, and recently the Hodinkee Zenith and Vacheron Constantin.
    I believe there has been other brands that did collaborations with watchuseek and other watch portals.

    The people demand a Tag Heuer Calibre 11 edition. And we have the perfect starting base.

    The color scheme is perfect.
    The design is timeless.

    What say you? And what would be your suggestions?

    Oh, and it would come in a special box, with an extra rubber strap, and Nato one.

    I doubt there's enough demand in the WIS community or on this forum to make a Tag equivalent of the Speedy Tuesday worthwhile.

    For me to be interested, though, it would have to be a reissue style Carrera or Autavia, with a smaller diameter and thickness than the current offerings. Maybe not as small as the 36mm Carerra reissue, but 40mm or under.

    39 seems like a sweet spot.
    Sorry, can't be an Autavia, they are just releasing one.

    Now, to justify production considering the small quantity, it has to be an existing case, and can only think of the 1887 41mm.

    Telemeter case? But without the glassbox crystal?

    I would definitely support calibre11 edition of heuer watch.
    I think it should be monaco though.
    Because i dont think there will be any monaco release this year (i might be wrong).
    But anyway, its a great idea, whatever the watch in the end finally

    I think you're on to something, something really good.

    But you've just recently had a Monaco release.

    I do like the idea of using the Telemeter case, a smaller (thinner!) classic carrera woud be great

    Using the Telemeter case, would imply a two sub-register dial.

    While I'm not super sure we need to create the 90,703,506th "Limited Edition" TAG Heuer (see thread: https://forums.calibre11.com/threads/limited-editions-tag-heuers.18621/) I would be enthusiastic about it only in the case of a chronograph with dimensions of <14mm case thickness and <41mm diameter. Not negotiable. Oh, and "Carreras" with external bezels need not apply either.

    Any preferences for pushers? I am a sucker for the 1887 / JH80 ones.
