    I note that Nicholas Biebuyck has been appointed as Heritage Director at TAG Heuer, I imagine replacing Catherine Eberlé-Devaux, who was at TAG Heuer a long time and was incredibly helpful with information.

    Nicholas was at the online publication Blackbird Watch Manual, and also worked at Bonhams as a senior watch specialist

    While I hope this was a positive move for Catherine, I want to raise a glass full-of-optimism that we'll get more faithful vintage re-editions in the future.

    Going through his IG and I think there's a good match. Motorsports, classic cars and watches. Plenty of vintage Heuer posts dating years back :thumbsup:

    I wonder if he had to buy from a scalper or got it direct from TAG. I was told that it wouldn't be sold outside the US and Japan. :)

    Whatever, he has had the good sense to put it on a black rally strap, so the man obvious does have taste.

    I believe this is the standard strap outside of the US, where alligator isn't allowed.

    I don't believe so. The strap they shipped outside of the US didn't have rally holes - this one looks like it does.

    Not sure, George Bamford had this same strap on his on IG a while back.

    OK, maybe it's the extra Hodinkee strap they bundled in that case? The official TAG branded strap was definitely a plain black leather, though.

    Yes might be, I heard there were two straps included.

    Catherine will be joining Bulgari as Head of Communications for Watches- of course, lots of former TAG Heuer people at Bulgari.

    Catherine was hugely passionate about Heuer and TAG Heuer and was a real help behind the scenes in confirming stories, or providing help with research...she'll do a great job with Bulgari, and look forward to seeing what Nick brings to the job.

    Biebuyck is a Heuer nut. High hopes.

    Does this mean that TAG might now be prepared to service/maintain old models faithfully?

    I'm hoping to get across to Switzerland later this year and be able to discuss with the new team....can assure that it's not a lack of interest/ desire at my end, it's whether TAG Heuer will do it!
