This week’s best Watchbase entries

TAG Heuer Carrera 160th Anniversary

CENSORED

I stumbled upon this one whilst uploading a couple of the more classical Carrera offerings – the TAG Heuer Carrera 160th Anniversary CBN2A1D.BA0643. Building upon the template of the Carrera 02 44mm launched earlier this year, this limited edition of 1,860 pieces sports a silver ‘Panda’ style dial. Not a bad look! There’s a blue one too, in the form of ref. CBN2A1E.BA0643.

Breitling Chronomat B01 42 Japan Edition

The Breitling Chronomat B01 42 AB0134101B2 is exclusive to the Japanese market. But what’s different? The red accents on both the dial as well as the hands are now silver, making for a pure monochromatic look. The devil is in the details!

IWC Marksmen Match Thun 1995

Rare IWC’s – we’ve got a boatload of ’em in our database. One such oddity is the IW3530 ‘Marksmen Match Thun’, once available as either the IW3530-01 or IW3530-02.


This Week: TAG Heuer, Zenith - 2019/11/16 by Dale Vito


For the past two weeks I’ve mostly been working on our TAG Heuer database. It needed a lot of work – apart from a few high-profile releases I hadn’t really updated it in years, plus we had a huge amount of references still in draft, most notably watches powered by quartz movements. A few of my favorites (plus two Zenith for contrast) below;

TAG Heuer Formula 1 WAH1113.FT6025

The Formula 1 is TAG’s entry-level collection. Still, I quite like this green-on-green number. Looks like a fun watch for summer holidays. Simple, robust, and relatively inexpensive. Wear it & forget about it. MORE!

TAG Heuer Professional Sports Watch WAE1113.FT6004

Another TAG, another quartz. BUT!!!! the Professional Sports Watch – originally introduced as the Professional Golf Watch – has such a unique case, designed for optimal ergonomics while playing sports. The case serves as the buckle for the bracelet too, not unlike Piaget’s fancy Upstream watches. MORE!

TAG Heuer Formula 1 David Guetta WAZ201A.FC8195

Remember this? I almost forgot about it. I don’t care much for David Guetta but the blue-on-black makes for a strong look. That strap though! MORE!

TAG Heuer Carrera Calibre 01 CLEP CAR201J.FT6087

Carrera’s. There’s so many of them. The wild number of movements, cases, dials -and combinations of these three elements- makes it hard to really understand the collection [/rant]. Anyway, one of my favorite Heuer 01-powered Carrera’s is this CLEP limited of 100 pieces. MORE!

Zenith Defy Classic Rainbow 3.9002.670/96.R587

Yes, yes, I’ve uploaded the Phillips A386 retro pieces this week too, but by now I think we’ve seen about enough El Primero 50th Anniversary watches. So, here’s something different: the black ceramic Rainbow Defy 41, made as a Greater China (and Zenith boutiques) LE of 150 pieces. MORE!
