I agree that this seems to be a great looking watch . . . looking forward to seeing it in the metal. As always, the photos from Hodinkee are amazing . . . so dramatic!!
I had written about this watch, when it was first shown, in January 2020, here -- http://www.onthedash.com/lvmh-watch-week-2020-news-20jan12/
To my eye, the most dramatic elements are the thick, black needles, contrasted with the beautifully built registers, with the silver finish. I'm also a big fan of the lume, with its "fauxtina".
Seems to me that, right now, there are a lot of Heuer enthusiasts playing the waiting game. Wondering whether TAG Heuer will issue a Panda version (SN) or the reverse Panda version (NS). To my way of thinking, it's a great thing that we are realistically looking forward to such options. This will be a limited edition of 1,860 watches, with the Silver dial, but we must assume that TAG Heuer will offer a "standard" edition, perhaps with a flat white dial. From there, we can hope for the contrasting registers, etc.
I am still loving my Fragment Carrera; would be tempting to add this one to the rotation, but got to be realistic about this . . . it's that damn waiting game.
Nice change in our way of thinking that we are applauding this new LE Carrera and actually looking forward to the release of additional models and executions. .
: Such a beatiful watch, the symmetric subdials make it look even
: purer than it already is by itself.
: If I could be allowed to nit-pick, I'd have used a slightly
: "fatter" font for the Carrera moniker and the Heuer
: shield, but I know I am really being fussy here ;-).
