: Thanks to all of you for your quick responses,
: a great forum for me to decide to post on.
: Some great advice and indepth knowledge about
: the watches especially from Chuck, I thought
: from your articles that you would probably
: reply with some good feedback.
: I did try on both watches yesterday, though it
: was the new TAG Heuer Carrera, not the
: Re-Edition, but was still undecided as they
: both felt good, but in the back of my mind I
: think I have always fancied the Carrera, and
: I you have helped me decide. So I think I
: will go for a silver face, Carrera
: Re-Edition with a perforated strap.
: I have spoken to someone at the Bicester TAG
: outlet shop and they have one of the
: Carrera's for £975, official retail was
: £1475 I think, so a reasonable deal, I have
: seen a few used Re-Editions for a similar
: price, other than one on eBay at the moment
: which is up at about £700, plus import into
: the UK probably on top of that. So I think a
: trip to Bicester at the weekend will be in
: order (and not too far for me, about 45 mins
: drive, I knew there was an outlet shop in
: Gretna but not Bicester).
: Which is good because it is sort of as a
: present for my 30th birthday which is on
: Saturday, and partly from my recent
: marriage, my wife had an expensive
: engagement ring, so I can have a watch that
: I have so long looked at in jewellers
: I'll probably try and ring round a few other
: TAG dealers to see if they can do a deal, as
: as you say it is now discontinued.
: Thanks once again to all of you, and any other
: comments still welcome.
I didn't know they had an outlet in Bichester either! That's a good price that will probably be unbeatable through "official" channels.
