Re: I Suppose There's No Accounting for Taste

I really wonder how TAG Heuer can accept, tolerate or even encourage those "customizations", especially on their rather tasteful heritage models. Does TAG Heuer monitor or approve each customized watch by Bamford before production, or can I simply order what I want, no matter how ugly it is?

In my humble opinion this rather undermines the value of the brand itself and disregards the development process, which lead to the original design of this Autavia.

For some reason, this dial reminds me of the cheap Easy Rider Chronographs of the 70s.
