    I guess. But it seems backwards to me. But I guess it's no different than the Carrera Montreal...

    Payback for all the modern Carreras and Monacos I suppose - hahaha.

    Wow this one looks great! Too bad about the cheap looking sand blasted titanium, it doesn't add up in me brain when TAG charges more for a watch that looks and feels cheaper :D

    I’m fine with modern watches like the carrera elegants, modern interpretations of classic watches like the skeleton monacos and vintage inspired watches like the bb58 and ranger….provided they are done well.

    This, like the 844 tribute before, is a half-assed wave of the vintage stick over a current design and some narrative modification to make it fit with an imaginary history.

    Bruh I am a huge fan of the cyclops on mine, it works really well and looks great being "integrated" under/in the crystal

    To me, progression is the natural course, making a 'retro' version of a watch that came out in 2004 is just.... bizarre. If it even looked a little bit like a 1000 then okay, like if they still made Aquaracers with round bezels then it wouldn't be so jarring.

    Then again, is the LHD Pelagos any different?

    Hence I’d far prefer a 1000 tribute as a totally separate model, like the Pelagos and Black Bay. Allow the aquaracer to be a modern dive watch and the 1000 to be properly vintage slanted, far closer to the original 1000.

    Yes this would make sense and no doubt sell well to forum members

    On the other hand you can find water damaged 3000s that kinda look like this...

    Tribute to the 3000 would make a whole lot more sense

    Isn’t that basically the 40mm aquaracer with round markers?

    Kinda shot myself in the foot there eh. Hahaha. But of course there's no value in a tribute to the 3000, so we'll just pretend it's a tribute to the 1000...:rolleyes:

    Could definitely sell three or four 3000 tributes!

    It’s probably best Frederic is in charge not us

    Definitely.

    TAG would have 6 models, all based on 1960s Carreras and would go bust in a week.
