    Watches with Orange and (Light) Blue Dials?

    I recently discovered this Limited Edition Tag Heuer and immediately fell in love with everything except it's ~$10,000 price tag...

    The aspects that I like most, though, are the orange and light blue accents. If a similar watch has a black case and is square, great, but I'm looking for other options.

    I believe that color combo is an homage to the Gulf livery of racing:


    I absolutely love that combination.

    Here are some for half that price.

    edit: Here are some I've found:

    Lots of blue and orange out there, just not the right blue.

    Also, vintage Monaco/Mcqueen/Gulf combo

    Yeah, Tag actually makes a Monaco that's very similar to the one that I posted earlier, which is a direct homage to those cars - which is about half the price of the watch I posted initially.

    IIRC Debaufre made similar watches with the racing stripe dials, just no Gulf logo.

    Nice, Griff!



    They are currently unavailable, but Debaufre says they are working on a new model. Perhaps with a PVD case??

    Sorry to get off topic just a bit...... I know many of you are auto racing fans. Give yourself a treat and rent "Le Mans". It's a great look into the past and racing scenes are fantastic (for that time). The cars and racers were real and they did not mess up the movie with too much dialog. I don't think there is more than 50 sentences spoken in the entire film.

    Here are a couple more with the same theme:

    Are Steinhart and Debaufre made my the same folks?

    If they aren't, the may want to chat a bit about their product development departments......

    Debaufre was the US distributor for Steinhart. They split, but both carried on some of the same product lines.
