    Me too ... and the person I sold it to is also now selling it!
    But this is nice - any idea if the size? And at least they haven’t ruined it by sticking “Tag” on it..

    I like the direction but man, a manual wind at like 37.5mm would be worth fanboy'ing over. I shall stick with the originals, which are some of my favorite watches ever made.

    Worth to mention that you have a wrist that is fully compatible with that size ;)

    A 39mm case sits on my wrist like this one on yours. It's all about proportions ::bleh::

    Same here. Wearing a 36mm watch is a labor of love, but 39mm is perfect for me

    It’s essentially a silver Carrera Fragment then.

    Except it has dial markers, which were one of the hallmarks of the original - elegance, with read-at-a-glance sportiness. The Fragment does not

    Tag is very aggressive with constant changes with their watches styles.

    Yeah, it seems like they're trying to rectify that and bring everything in line. The Times piece is worth a read. I've been very disappointed in TAG over the years, but things sound like they're looking up

    Talked with my swiss AD yesterday and the one they should get has my name over it. Looking forward to have it in my hands, May-June the AD said, it's a very nice reedition IMO.

    I think they nailed the design of this one. And 39mm is absolutely the sweet spot for a chronograph. But that 14.5mm thickness... :thumbsdown:

    Absolutely love the looks of this one, and have one on reserve. A bit concerned about the height, but I have a few chronos in that range so hopefully won't be a dealbreaker.
