As In "DayMontErona" or "Camarerra"
In Response To: It's a "TagaMarchairuzaHeuer". ()

why bother with "Links", "Monacos" and "Monzas" when these far more exotic (and rare) models are available, often at much more reasonable prices? Why just a few days ago, I spotted a unique ViceRerra -- Viceroy hands on a Carrera. Or would that be a CarreRoy??



: Well, in fact there are probably many meanings
: but, the most famous comes from the word
: Marchairuz which is a famous mountain town
: in Switzerland. It has a really high
: elevation on the order of 1419 meters(see
: watch dial face). Now this presented some
: awesome opportunities for both skiing and
: autoracing hillclimb events. All true.

: So Lemania, being in the area, decided to
: commemorate a watch to this famous area. At
: least that's my story and I'm sticking to
: it.

: See for yourself with a quick Google or Yahoo
: search.

: Now if Lemania had only put on that 24 hour sub
: dial I love so much, Michael's watch would
: interest me. It does have a nice clean look
: to it though with that nice outer bezel.

: So, in honor of this famous town having
: inspired a new model TagHeuer which we think
: is a fake, I suggest we name it a
: "TagaMarchairuzaHeuer". Say that
: three times fast. LOL
