    Hi, long time lurker, first time poster.

    I went to five authorized dealer stores here in California looking for Carrera 41mm models, such as the Calibre 1887 CAR2110 or the Calibre 16 CV2010. However, none of the stores had them. These stores were major retail chains.

    The only Carreras available were 43mm, such as the rose-gold Calibre 1887 CAR2014 and the Calibre 16 CV2A10.

    Tag Heuer's catalog website still shows all the 41mm models, but its online shopping site (https://shop-us.tagheuer.com/) has only one 41mm Carrera, the super-expensive CAR2141.

    Does anyone know what happened to the 41mm models? One guy at a store vaguely said that he hadn't seen a 41mm watch come into his inventory for several months.

    By the way, the 43mm Calibre 1887 CAR2014 was marked with a permanent price reduction from over $6000 to $4800.

    I still see them in boutiques in this part of the world; NOS perhaps?

    There are also abundantly available on Chrono24 and the the bay by business sellers.

    Thank you. I would like to know if they are discontinuing the 41mm watches (which would be a shame), or are they releasing new versions in the near future.

    If they are discontinuing them, I'll go ahead and buy from a grey-market seller like Amazon. If they're releasing new ones, I can hold off and buy from a local authorized dealer.
