    Just bought the Car2a10.ba0799 Tag 1887. Thinking about returning and grabbing the new Tag Heuer Flyback. Anybody have any thoughts or reviews. I appreciate any feedback.

    If you are referring to the Calibre 36 flyback (car2b10 for example); it is not a new piece. But, I do like it. I'm a fan of the El Primero movement. It is after all, the world's fastest integrated chronograph. And with regards to retail price, I believe you can buy the Cal 36 at a TAG Outlet for a decent discount. Also, I love the look of a 2 register chrono.

    I'd go for the Cal 36, but then I'm a massive fan of anything with an El Primero movement in it so that's not surprising :)

    It's a beautiful movement- all depends on the premium. I hear that the Calibre 36 models have been a little slower to sell given the premium pricing.

    The styling is pretty similar- see below

    They are having trouble selling them, even at the Outlet level where it's discounted. I'm not sure if this is because even at a markdown they're relatively higher priced than the other Outlet pieces, or just because it's not what the Outlet shoppers are looking for...

    Last time I bought a watch in an outlet I was looking for the contact details of tag watch servicing, works both ways!

    Could be tempted with that calibre 36, looks very good.
