    Just curious which you would say is better and why.
    Is it just a styling question between the two, (one aimed to sporty look, and the other aimed for the elegant look)? One reason I ask is seeing a Carrera pictured on here that was a Calibre 16 Day/Date and the styling looks almost the same as a Link Calibre 16 Day/Date. I own a Link, but some of the Carreras I have seen pictured on here have me wanting one of those as well.
    Anyway...I was just curious.

    I made a type-o in my previous post. It should have read: "I wouldn't say one is better".

    To me the Link are more comfortable to wear due to the shorter lugs. The Carrera temds to have long, straight lugs and sits high and extends out. You will find that the 43mm day/date seems larger than other 43mm watches and definitely wears larger than the Link.

    My first Carrera, bought on impulse, but certainly not my last. Very happy so far, both in terms of looks and time-keeping.

    Thanks! I agree, the white dial one is a beauty too. It was a tough choice. Should have just bought them both... :)
    Btw, just put on a leather strap, and I have to say I think it looks even better now.

    Re: The Carrera Club

    hello.. i am new to this forum and i am interested with carrera 16. Before i decided to buy this watch, there are still a few Question that bothers me. Are all models of Carrera 16 have clear sapphire back case? Or is there any special edition of carrera 16? And what is the significant characteristic of this watch that i can see if it is genuine or not? I am very afraid of end up with buying a fake watch.. Could somebody who expert with carrera 16 explain? sorry for my bad english.. I am from Malaysia.. thank you very much! :)

    Visit and buy from an authorized TAG dealer to ensure getting an authentic watch.

    Re: The Carrera Club

    I have the Carrera Calibre 16 Day/Date Automatic. Does any one else notice the day of the week change at around 11:35pm and the date changing properly at 12? Mine does this and I was just curious. Nothing major. Just wondering.
