Isn't it lovely to see Tag placing the registers back in the traditional 9 & 6 positions !!
This version of the Carrera ticks many of the right boxes in my view. Internal tachy looks right in place, date window down where it should be & nice ridged markers.
Many of Mark's points are "spot on". The red Heuer sheild & tachy scale are features owners will grow to love BUT i'm not a fan of the red tips on the small register hands.
But my one overwhelming observation is that the registers should be a little further apart. Does anyone else think this Carrera looks a little "cross-eyed" ?
