    They are just reusing them from the existing McQueen model.

    Possibly. If they are, that shows a lack of thought around the design which generally isn't something TAG Heuer gets wrong with their heritage/classic models.

    I agree with you that having black subdials and white/orange accents would have been optimal. However I won't dismiss this new one just because of their absence.

    Small update:

    This is a US-only edition given the restrictions on the licensing of the Gulf logo and brand.

    Reference is CAW211R.FC640

    Ah well. With the red and orange colours clashing, it is unlikely I would have bought one anyway.

    That is good news for me. Tired of UK exclusive Carreras. Any word on the availability timeframe? Is it still September?

    No update on timing, but the September date came from a US dealer, so I reckon that will be pretty close to the mark.

    Surely the red/ orange will be resolved before it's launched

    It could be a pre production offering before final sign off? The model hitting the ADs may have all the niggles cured.

    Two questions:

    Is this worth getting if you already have steve mcqueen edition ?

    Is this worth getting if you havent got steve mcqueen edition ?

    Cheers

    Does it make your heart flutter?
    Yes? Then yes.
    No? Then no.
    I don't think McQ ownership is relevant. Watch purchases should be about heart, not head.

    It has to be love at first sight, or even lust?
