    I'm probably missing something REALLY obvious, but it seems both these references are quartz Kirium choronographs with blue dials... it's doing my head in! Somebody put me out of my misery please!

    Probably two different shades of blue.

    That thought crossed my mind too, but knowing that TAG Heuer make two Aquaracers in completely different shades of blue with the same number, I'm skeptical about that. Think I need to get the catalogues out!

    Could be, but we know TAG are a bit flighty about movements at the best of times.... could be a Selitta or an ETA etc.

    I meant more like a Calibre 12 instead of a Calibre 17 but obviously these would quartz movements not mechanical.

    Well the catalogues haven't given me any answers... the CL1112 is featured in several but the CL1114 isn't in any of them. And yet, if you Google CL1114 there's far too many results for it to be a mistake. I will make enquiries directly!

    Okay, I have the answer thanks to my contact at TAG, the CL1112 is a polished case, the CL1114 is a brushed case. Hmm, now I wish I had a CL1114 instead!:(

    you want a brushed rather than polished?

    And that doesn't look polished to me.

    Has the ba0701 bracelet, which is only polished down the center.

    The bezel is polished on the CL1112, brushed on the CL1114 (like the F1 Kirum - CL111A), the cases on both are brushed.... and yes the the CL1112 has polished centre links.

    Hi, I was also looking for a difference and from what I see, besides the differences mentioned above, the CL1114 has a flat blue dial whereas the CL1112 has an electric blue dial. I could not capture the differences as well as I would have hoped. Could not get the lighting right.

    Pleasure. I was not aware that there were 2 blues till last week when I acquired the CL1112. The CL1114 is beautiful, but the CL1112 is absolutely stunning in my opinion.

    Sure is... impossible to capture in a photograph though. Welcome to the forum ebmias, nice to have another Kirium enthusiast on board!

    Thank you. The Kirium has one of the most comfortable bracelets I’ve worn

    Yup, it's killer and much under appreciated.
