    Let’s just use the official name of the color from TAG Heuer website whether “white” is more of silver OR “silver” is more of white. It’s the hues and lighting angle which makes the difference ;)

    Historical revisionism :rolleyes: It’s something very common nowadays with the advent of social media. People have forgotten to look, read and verify info at the books. Instant information without verification. And the world is run by “fake news”, “trolls” and “memes” :confused:

    When you thought the world has advanced with all the technology today, still alot of people haven’t. :cautious:

    Another white dial, also available in Heuer. I'm sure this isn't what they meant by a screw down bezel...

    Have been to London today and tried on even more things! Chopard Alpine Eagle, Aquaracer 844, Aquaracer blue tortoiseshell bezel, Carrera Porsche, Dato 45 Blue dial L/E (that is absolutely stunning). Also saw these:

    What’s this one? Do you mean the blue 45mm tourbillon?

    Indeed. Wasn't the Carrera already 'sport'? I mean the name is from a car race which is sport!

    One of the Chopard watches my wife tried on today, she thought it was £15,000 turns out it was £58,000!

    By the way, if anyone's interested, Harrods also have that blue dial Calibre 5 Carrera limited edition with the red second hand that came out a few months ago...

    That's the least hideous thing that has been posted for a while (side stare at carrera sport), do the colours look that good in the metal?

    Yes, it was quite pretty! If I had more time I would have tried it on...

    Very colourful. But you'd need to have Lewis Hamilton's dress sense to carry it off.

    I was pretty disappointed in the Hublot section of Selfridges, everything looked exactly as I remembered from two years ago..

    But AP was worse. The Wonder Room is basically a 'department store' for watches, with each brand getting say two sides of a square. AP had maybe ten feet of cabinets, they had IIRC 6 watches and they were ALL Code 11:59. Not a single Royal Oak of any kind. The Code 11:59 doesn't look any 'better' in real life, so if you didn't like it in the photos then you're probably not going to like it at all.

    Sounds typical for these hype brands. "Oh you want to see and try our watches? Sure thing, here are the models no one likes"

    I did see a black Ferrari Enzo parked in Bond Street, wish I'd taken a photo of it now....
