    I've seen this picture in several IG stories yesterday and decided to investigate a bit further about the new model to come. From this picture, I must admit this reedition looks very good. Looking forward to know more about the technical details and price.

    If this is being priced right, I think it can be a serious home run from TAG Heuer. What do you guys think?

    Looks really nice. The proper way to reissue a vintage watch.

    I really like this one and I may well look to add it to the collection once I get to see it first hand.
    The Carrera, Monza and Monaco range has always brought out the best in Tag Heuer and sometimes they produce a classic design that will stand the test of time, an example imo would be my 300 SLR.

    Oh no that faux :eek::eek::eek::eek:

    :rolleyes:

    (just being a sarcastic tease)

    I think it looks fantastic. I would love to know what would be powering this (and I would love to know if they keep the exact proportions (i.e. I always found it was a bit too thick in respect to the case size and sat oddly on my wrist, hence selling my CS3110))...

    I really like this. I had one of the 1964 Re-editions that got stolen. It was one of my favourite pieces. If this is priced right, I could be tempted.

    Clean looking watch, but I'm afraid legibility might be a concern similar to the FOIS.

    A moment of weakness or madness?

    I see size as being the only negative with the original Carreras. If the size suits yours taste then they’re pretty much perfectly designed.

    Edit to add: Regarding the re-issue, I read comments somewhere that worried about the thickness, and I’d agree that if it’s too tall it would be a shame.

    Interesting NYT articles via that link in the first post. Let's see what stuff Heuer and others come up with.

    Is it me or that index at 10 is not aligned to the outer scale and the index at 6 looks a bit off counter clockwise. ::confused2::

    I assume this pic is not a photograph but a digital rendering, they could have at least checked this kind of details... or does it have to do with that 30cm distance QC rule? ::yawn::

    Several of the indices look ever so slightly off (or the lume dot not centered on the baton) and the 9 looks to me as having the same skew.

    There's some misalignment going on. Isn't this a drawing btw ? I know that many of the official watch photos are actually graphic art and not the actual watch...

    Good for them.
    But the only thing that interests me is : where is the Autavia Isographe ???

    39mm, Heuer-02 movement, $6450. I've already got one reserved.

    IMO this is much more interesting than a 1:1 reedition of the 105.003. I seriously can't wait to see this one in the metal, and how the classic design works at a 39mm scale.

    The question will be how large and thick will it be. Tag constantly screws this up going way too large

    Production issues caused them to be recalled. The Autavia line has been re-released with a Calibre 5 (ETA 2892)

    Have you tried on a Hodinkee Skipper, Fragment Carrera or the Telemetre model? It's that case
