    my AD? what's an AD? The site itself cannot be ordered through. There's ONE STORE that purportedly carries connected gear, but they're always out and inside the airport...I think I can get them to order things in...but it takes less time/effort for me to just take a bus to NYC LOL (which, as you know, has the only ACTUAL tag store in the entire eastern seaboard).

    (P.S: MOST of the time, when i try, which I do every few months, they tell me there's a waiting list or some such and they can't even order it in and some even telling me that they simply CANNOT order in stuff from the connected line).

    :thumbsdown: It's a shame you have such a bad distribution of the TAG Heuer Connected Modular line in your area... Come to Barcelona on vacation and buy it here! ;)

    I guess your other option is ebay. Try this seller in Spain. I bought some of my straps, bracelets, buckles, and lugs to him. Everything brand new and at very good price:

    I generally get horrible flashbacks whenever I think about buying stuff from outside of the country tbh, i've had some really bad experiences with Import and Duty. Between exchange rate and duty costs it'll actually cost me LESS money to have the NYC 5th Avenue store order the stuff in, and take a train/bus trip down there to collect it, lol.

    And yea, it IS sad...ALTHOUGH I suppose my wallet is a bit thankful. God knows i'd have spent thousands of dollars if say the store near my house had all the stuff in stock...LOL.

    Nice!! :thumbsup:
    I think you didn’t consider your Modular collection completed until the arrival of the gold lugs! ;)

    I was able to score a used calf leather strap and black buckle for a very good price.

    I washed my brown calfskin strap yesterday with Moussel Aloe Vera gel and water, brushing the stitching with an old toothbrush, and it looks like new again (just wait for the strap to be completely dry)... maybe you could try the same :thumbsup:

    Updated picture of my “TH Modular collection” after three additional arrivals: yellow rubber strap, white rubber strap with TAG Heuer logos, and white leather strap with green stitching from the Golf Edition :)

    And this is probably the last updated picture of my “Modular Collection” after last two arrivals (green and electric blue rubber straps), because there are not more different straps in the TH catalogue! :D

    5EA1635A-FDC8-43A2-A094-2DE3E0CFE381.jpeg

    Still looking for the Red Bull Racing Edition strap (blue calfskin with red stitching, not sold separately), but with no luck up to now...

    I eventually found the strap of the Red Bull Racing Special Edition, so this is the last updated picture of my Modular collection, including this last arrival! :)

    So it now includes the four exclusive leather straps from the different Connected Modular Special Editions made. These straps are not sold separately, so they were hard to find (from left to right):

    Kingsman
    Red Bull Racing
    Manchester United
    Golf Edition

    So is there anything remaining on your wish list or have you collected them all?

    My collection already includes all the available straps and bracelets from the TH CM45 accessories catalogue, and also the four leather straps from the Special Editions (not sold separately), three of the four types of lugs (I’m not going to buy the lugs with diamonds!), and also two of the three existing mechanical modules... because the third one is the Heuer 02 Tourbillon, and it’s too expensive for me!

    So this Tourbillon module will be probably forever in my wishlist, unless I win some kind of lottery! ;)

    The blue calfskin strap from the Red Bull Racing Special Edition was the last one I really had in my wishlist, so I should consider the collection is finished... although there are still three straps that could have place in my collection if I find them ;): the orange rubber strap with TH logos (only available in USA), the pink rubber strap with TH logos (from the Giro d’Italia Special Edition), and the white and painted rubber strap from the Alec Monopoly Special Edition:

    I used to have the pink strap with big logo and i also used to have a rather unique one being red with the big logo from the BMC cycling team. If i would have known they were so rare, i would have kept them :unsure:
