The reissued TAG-made timers don't really fit with the aesthetic of the Singer though. I think the clock on the Singer dash is quite cool looking, actually. But they are going to rue the day they slapped that Heuer decal on there. If LVMH sicks their lawyers on Singer, the scene is going to get ugly. I agree with Jeff that the fact that the subregisters don't work is super stupid. But from a purely aesthetic POV I love the look. It would be a shame if Singer gets put out of business by LVMH over a silly decal...But it could happen.
: You are absolutely correct, that TAG Heuer has done re-issues of
: several of the dashboard timers in recent years -- Master Time,
: Monte Carlo and Autavia. Any of these re-issued Heuers would
: have been an interesting choice for the re-done Porsches, but
: technical aspects (mechanical versus electronic), aesthetic
: issues and the pricing probably make the genuine Heuers an
: unlikely choice.
