    Nice profile of Carole Forestier-Kasapi who is TAG Heuer movement director, responsible for the Solargraph and the H02 Flyback movements.

    I'd love to see more articles that covers these movements more in-depth. There's a general perception that the Solargraph movement is basically the same as the Citizen movement. It would be good to know where TAG Heuer has added innovation and/or refinement. I'd like to also better understand what goes into making the H02 Flyback and why I should care. The Flyback function is cool, but it's not something I'd really need or use for the kinds of things I time with my chrono.

    Agree. Have you read what @Jeff Stein referenced, when he was doing his research?

    My key takeaway is that Frédéric Arnault took finding a suitable replacement for Guy Semon seriously, which led to Carole Forestier-Kasap being hired. This gives me renewed hope that we'll continue to see advances in TAG Heuer's movements and timing innovation.
