First one in the wild I think.
I dunno, there's something off with this thing.... I thought I was gonna love it, but it ain't working for me so far.
No mate...a friend in NJ.
That's my man Doug.
They’re just arriving in Boutiques and ADs as of Tuesday. I got hands-on:
It’s pretty cool, the DLC case is as nice as it is on the Night Diver. The bezel effect looks better in person too
So what’s the overall opinion?
Considering a purchase or underwhelmed?
First set pic above pics left me feeling disappointed, but latest pics turned my opinion around somewhat.
It looks cool but I aint no fan of solar power, electric watches, especially not in this pricepoint. I want low precision mechanical good ol shit
I do not wear quartz watches, so the Solargraph is unfortunately disqualified. But if it were a mechanical 40mm, I very well might buy it, I really liked the way it felt and wore. Plus, according to the TAG site, the bezel is lumed:
My verdict is it's really cool but too bad it's quartz.
I’m really looking forward to trying this on, I love quartz for the accuracy and toughness, this looks like the perfect daily beater.
I have nothing against quartz. But I don't really care for the swirly look on the carbon bezel, that's the only negative for me. Overall I think it's cool.
If they ever make one in Night Diver form, it would definitely have my attention.
I don't like the swirly carbon when it's used for the case like with so many other forged carbon watches, but I think it works nicely for the bezel insert here.
I actually really like the bezel, especially as every one will be different. The carbon element means more to me as I am a keen cyclist, so value the material. Titanium for the same reason too.
I only have one mechanical watch, being new to this, but don’t have any intention to grow a huge collection. I just want a small mix of colour, tech and complications to have a variation.
This is certainly one I am intrigued with, as something fresh, and don’t have to risk the calibre 5 to get the Aquaracer fix I am destined to get at some point.
So you want solar powered mechanical? Eh???
So I visited a TAG boutique today and tried on the rabbit and the red Porsche, I asked about the Solargraph and they basically said 'If you want to give us a deposit then we can get one in for you but otherwise we ain't getting one.' I guess we shouldn't complain too much since we're not having 'display only' watches in the windows, but this kind of thing is getting a little annoying. I might want one, but I won't know until I see the damned thing!
It's not a LE though, is it? Maybe they'll just show up once preorders are filled.
how did the Porsche wear? Did they say If they have any stock left of the blue?
Blue is all gone, red was nice... seemed very small to me, but then I was wearing my 47mm SLR. I actually checked with them that the rabbit Carrera was 44mm cos I couldn't believe it. I'm still not sure I believe it. Doesn't seem as chunky as I remember the Sports Carreras.
£20,000 for the Porsche Carrera gold though.... it's way too much. It also gives off a more vintage vibe than I thought it would.
^ 20k for the gold/red Carrera Porsche.
Rabbit is 7k US
