Following on from the discussion in the CBK221B thread (the one where we discussed that the Heuer 01 Carrera and the Autavia Calibre 5 should have been given 'new' names, not shoe-horned to fit into an existing range that isn't really suitable) I wondered what was the last watch model that TAG Heuer made from scratch. I'm not counting the Aquaracer, because that was simply a name change to the 2000 range, indeed we had the 2000 Aquagraph and 2000 Aquaracer, which became the Aqugraph and Aquracer, so that's inarguable. So I thought about it and I reckoned it was possibly the Microtimer, but that was 2002, surely they haven't been sitting on their hands since then? So I looked back through the catalogues and it seems like the last time they made a new watch was either the SLR or the Golf, sometime around the mid-2000s. For a company that prides itself on being modernist and Avant Garde doesn't this seem slightly strange? And do they really think the way to appeal to the young (as they keep on telling us they must) is to keep on banging the 'historical' drum in this way?
