TAG (as posted above) vs. C65 Chrono - Apples and Pears.
60's inspired Dive watch vs. contemporary Motorsport watch.
One is three times the price of the other.
Interestingly Guy which is the CW in your response?
The CW has dive aspects (bezel, 150WR) and motorsport aspects (tachymetre) so is it a 60's inspired dive watch or a motorsport watch? (or even usable as a yachting watch as some have mentioned?)
This is part of it's problem
and why some people consider it a mess or overdone with lines, measurements and too many design features.
Sure the TAG is 3xprice of the CW which was actually the point I was making. CW at £1800 or TAG at £4895 for white on blue chronographs?
Is the CW already pushing beyond the brand value barrier for many people to consider buying or is it a cheap acceptable alternative to similarly configured and coloured TAG, Seamaster, Speedmaster, Zenith etc?
Personally I consider the deign of the TAG and others to be clearer and less "full" than the CW but, as I pointed out and you confirmed, they cost way more than the CW at £1800. Similar initial appearances but not similar prices.
