Re: It's Here -- TAG Heuer x Porsche Carrera


I think it is a beautiful watch, although not much a departure from the modern standard, and much better than TAG has come up with lately. I do have one beef with it. I remember, a while ago, discussing the vintage Breitling 809 Cosmonaute with you. You said, and this is just from my admittedly addled memory, that you had a hard time wearing a 24hr dial watch because you didn't like going through the conversion in your head...too much work.

Is this dial a bit of the same thing? I know it is still has 12 markers but will people go for the total concentration on timing function over the timekeeping function? I sort of don't get it.
Again, I like it and I am not the demographic TAG is after.

Yours in vintage

Little Johnny
