    For me this is more like a family/subfamily indication than a unique reference number.

    Just my two cents.
    The 4th number is the unique reference, so in your example you would have CAC111X, where X could be 0-9 for 10 different models.

    Ideas?
    The bolded text, above, is your unique serial number and is not part of the reference.

    I can't understand the use of '0', 'A' and 'B' for the size, when they are all used for 43mm diameter watches except for the new Heuer 01 which uses 'A' and is 45mm. Where's the freaking logic people??? lol!

    Otherwise, 'C' seems to be 45mm diameter.
    I can add that a '7' in the first number position, for movement, represents the electro-mechanical Calibre S.

    Re: can somebody explain the codes for tags please?

    Mystery of the hyphen after model number comes to an end, stumbled upon it while reading an article on the new HEUER 01 movement.

    "The TAG Heuer Calibre Heuer-01 is a development of the Calibre 1887. We know that TAG Heuer has continued to evolve and improve the 1887 since it’s launch in 2010, and we’re now on the 4th generation of the Carrera 1887 (denoted by the “-4” suffix on the model reference). The key dimensions of the movement are unchanged (still 39 jewels; still 50 hours power reserve), but we do have some cosmetic changes, such as the Red column wheel, a new skeleton weight and chronograph bridge."

    Here is the article for anyone interested:
