Re: The Carrera Got Its Bezel in 2005

Again, my issue is why it's called "Carrera" simply because that's the name that sells. The design of this watch works in the general sense - it's not as bad as the other Hublorreras we've gotten. But a Carrera this is not, and does not need to be in order to succeed. It's not just the size either - the 1887 Carreras were enormous, but still held onto the elegant design the Carrera name used to stand for.

I suppose they couldn't give it any other name though - it definitely, positively, absolutely does not resemble any other Heuer from the past. No sir!
