For Those Who Don't Like the Words on the Dial

The new Carrera has "Heuer 02" and "80 Hours" printed on the bottom of the dial.

Some have objected to having these words on the dial.

Someone in the Hodinkee comments asks whether this is better --

    Oyster Perpetual
    1000 ft = 300 m
    Superlative Chronometer
    Officially certified

He makes a good point!!



: TAG Heuer has redesigned its flagship Carrera chronograph . . .
: and I think it looks fantastic!! To my eye, an excellent
: combination of elements from the classic Carreras from the
: 1960s, and the features of a modern watch. Maybe this is a
: modern Carrera that the vintage enthusiasts will actually
: enjoy!!

: Here is my posting, introducing the Carrera Sport Chronograph, and
: offering some initial impressions --

: Will be interested to hear any reactions from the community of
: vintage collectors.
