    Help :) Tag Heuer Carrera Men's CAR2A80.FC6237 vs TAG Heuer Men's CV2A81.FC6237

    So here is another dilemma let me help choose one topic.
    Which one of these models you like better and why?

    They look pretty much the same?! besides
    movement cal16 vs 1887
    hands thicker vs thinner
    day option vs no day option
    Also 1887 looks less shinier than the 16. Is that so or just angle of the picture? But then i`ve seen a lot of pictures of both; still 1887 seems less shiny unless it is in my brain :o
    Are Arabic numbers on 1887 smaller?

    Is there anything i can`t see from the pictures?
    Do you think one would keep the value more over another?
    If they were priced the same or very close; cal 1887 being $250 more than the cal16 only

    Which one would you choose and why?

    I have to make a choice on Wednesday. And i am leaning towards 1887. I guess 1887 version seems tidier. cal16 looks it has a lot of stuff on top of each other like an untidy desktop lol.

    I am not educated with carrera`s i only know about F1 models so i need all your input.

    The important and relevant question is which one do YOU like? You're the one buying the watch after all.

    The bottom one for contrast, but overall neither - PVD.

    1887 for me, firstly its a nicely decorated coloum wheel chronograph, technically a superior movement, although nothing wrong with the cal 16, which will be easier and cheaper to service. I do like the date only vs day date so that tips it for me. Both nice though, go with the one you like best.

    I would go with the 1887; the date window is more subtle.

    The 1887 movement is the more interesting movement and would be my choice if it were my coin.

    I'd pick the 1887. I'm not a fan of day complications on chronographs.

    That said, the only important opinion is yours, since you will be wearing it.

    Both are great and a bit heavy. PVD I am not too sure about.
