    Thanks, guys . . . When I woke up this morning, I didn't expect to be buying a watch today. 10 minutes after wake-up, I saw this thread . . . during the afternoon, I contacted a friend at WOS . . . and now, I have ordered the watch and done the check-out. Hoping to receive it by Monday, although shipping does get crazy this time of year.

    I opted for the bracelet, on the theory that I can always buy an after-market leather strap (or even the TAG Heuer original), sometime down the road.

    So, thanks guys . . . couldn't have done it without you . . . and I'm hoping that no new releases will be part of tomorrow's wake-up.

    Jeff

    Congrats on the purchase.
    125 pieces is quite Limited and a great piece.

    I have been a big fan of the 42 mm Carrera, and really like all the dials currently used in the watch . . . gray, blue, black, white / silver / etc.. But when I saw that "Panda", I was suddenly a buyer.

    Just realised from that photo Maxine sent that the hour markers aren't lumed...

    I think they are, but very subtle as the plots are the same colour as the dial

    Oh right, yes the crappy lume around the edge that's hardly worth it..

    Surely having the hands lumed, is OK?

    It is nice, best 42mm so far imo. I'm only holding out because of the expected panda glassbox ::popcorn::::facepalm1::

    More like a lack of strategy, methinks… Why would you launch such a nice, well-balanced and timeless model as a distributor LE in selected markets only :thumbsdown:

    Knowing TH, I’m pretty sure that if this one sells out quickly, there will be additional panda variants… ;)

    No lume on the hour markers.

    Here's how it compares with the Porsche.

    Another one. You can definitely tell the WoS dial is off-white (antique white), when compared to the crisp white of the Porsche's.

    Yes, it's very nice. I would have preferred a flat-white dial, over the antique-white, but it's fine.
