I love mine! Wish they still made them. But TAG can't get the movement's from Lemania/Swatch Group any more. TAG/LVMH could make another re-edition of the Carrera with a manual wind Zenith movement, but so far they have not done so.
The Lemania 1873 is generally considered to be a better movement than the Valjoux 72 the original Carrera sported, and the Re-Editions were and are well thought of.
