My error Jeff, I couldn’t find the info on how limited the run. Shame they didn’t number them.
Still I’d rather spend my Euros on a 2447.
The new Carrera by Fragment Design will be limited to 500
: pieces, worldwide.
: And about the price -- if the original price for a Hodinkee or
: Revolution limited edition of the two register Carrera / Skipper
: is around $6,000 [with Selita based movement], then why not a
: premium of $2,000 for the in-house Heuer 02 movement? The Heuer
: 02 is an in-house movement; three registers; chronometer grade.
: It is difficult to compare the supply / demand dynamics of 125
: pieces from Hodinkee [which now sell in the after-market at 2X
: the original price] versus 500 pieces from Fragment Design, but
: I believe that there is some consistency to the pricing.
: Another way of looking at it -- the Autavias powered by the Heuer
: 02 movement were originally priced at $5,000 (for the standard
: model) or $6,000 for the Limited Editions . . . these are 42
: millimeter models, with the world complaining about the size. so
: I'll take a flyer on this 39 millimeter Carrera, with the $2,000
: premium price. If it proves to be more "wearable",
: then I will be a satisfied customer.
