In Japan for a few days and went to the local Tag Store.
Found something I wasn't expecting.
I had forgotten that this watch was in a Japan only Tag Heuer owners magazine
back in May when I was last here.

When I saw it , i loved it.
On putting it on, the love diminished a bit.
It is very understated. I don't mind that normally but for a watch with a face like this, it really didn't suit the
bullhead configuration I thought.
The subdials were very small for the size of the face and the numerals were really hard to see.
Ok if you don't use your watch to tell the time -:)
Just one mans point of view.
What do you think.

It's limited to 200 pieces.
Same price as the Jack Heuer bullhead version.

I enjoyed trying it on though.

Impressions

Cheers

Sushi :)

Don't think it's as nicely designed as the Jack Heuer version imo. As you say the subdials looks a bit small and contrast with the dial too heavily. The font for the numerals doesn't work either. The quality is clearly there but the whole design has a slight whiff of "bad fake of the Jack Heuer version" about it :)

Wisconsin, I have to agree with you 100%.
Ive noticed recently that the AD's are keeping the plastic wrapping on more and more watches.
Not a great look i must agree.

I think the subdials are the same size as the regular bullhead. What throws it off is that it's just the main dial and subdials, where we have that silver layer in between. Plays tricks on your eyes.
