    That's what I thought also.
    However, at 39mm, it is about the size of the Speedmaster Redcued. This watch may not float everyone's boat as this the smallest Carrera against the current line-up (~41-44mm).

    Are you sure it's 39mm?

    You are referring to the Speedmaster Reduced or my Carrera?

    I was responding to your quote that the Carrera is 39mm. I assumed you are saying the Carrera is 39mm like the Speedy.

    "However, at 39mm, it is about the size of the Speedmaster Redcued"

    Looking at the watch, it seems to have the proportions of the 41mm chrono case. Can you measure it to make sure?

    Oh...I did measure with a set of digital calipers that I normally use for my RC cars.. :)
    From 3 to 9 o'clock, excluding the crown, the diameter is ~39.25mm. Ditto approximately the same from 12 to 6.

    The product code for this is CAR2210. The 2nd digit I believe is supposed to indicate this is a midsize watch....so it seems to be inline with the measurement.

    Re: The Carrera Club

    I would buy this in a heartbeat if I ever come across it in person.
    Wonder how much this would cost on the secondary market - with its unique history/origin, I imagine quite a fortune....

    A final parting shot of the watch. :)

    Re: The Carrera Club

    Gents,

    Just to confirm I have just purchased the same "Outlet Special" Carrera (CAR2210) from Tag Heuer - Cheshire Oaks in the North West.

    There are two available variants, Black with White detail or White with Blue Detail.

    £1440 after discount.

    Re: The Carrera Club

    Thanks very much, I couldn't agree more with your statement. I like the military/aviation theme of the Alpnach (top of the range model too), the hamilton's are cool but the Tag has the brand prestige and I love the "motoring" theme. Decisions Decisions!
