Re: Completely uninspired bordering on cynical

: TAG really should have put some effort into this, since this
: partnership has such great potential. Instead, it's like they
: harbor active contempt for their customer base, and think
: "Eh, we'll just slap 'Porsche' on the bezel and call it a
: day, they'll buy it anyway"

: So, nothing but a light paint job, for $300 extra over the standard
: 44mm Carrera. Do TAG have anyone at all at their decision-making
: level, who actually cares about what they do?

^Couldn't agree more. Where are the people at Tag Heuer that produced the 160th Carrera? I understand they are sort of marketing the TAG products to maybe a different end user bigger, bolder, trendier etc. That said, aside from the fabulous movement this watch looks like 10 other Carreras on the market now. The association with Porsche is massive and I could think of a half dozen ways they could have drawn on their motorsports relationship/heritage with Porsche. Very disappointed.
