    thanks for the information.

    Do you know when Tag Heuer released the 2nd gen Formula 1 WAC/CAC series and then the 3rd gen WAH/CAH? Wondering if this was in the late 90's or after 2000. thanks.

    I know for sure the CAC Series came out after 2000, I think it was 2003. I remember the Macys had a big sale/promos and I bought a few to sell.

    The vintage F1 was retired in 2000. WA and CA model numbers.

    The CAH I want to say 2005 or 6... They are being replaced by the F1 Grande Line.

    Is there any way you can tell me when thes95-123k was discontinued. I was thinking of purchasing for about $300 and the seller states that it was manufactured after 2000. Any help ?
