Calibre 11- First Anniversary

Posted by: David Chalmers   |   18 July 2010   |   16 Comments  

This weekend marks the first anniversary of Calibre 11, the first post being a simple photo of my Monaco 1133B.

Since that first post, a further 107 stories have followed, drawing more than 500 of your comments and more than 200,000 hits recorded on the site.

More important than these numbers, writing Calibre 11 has been a real joy and pleasure and been a great way to meet fellow collectors, writers and enthusiasts. A big part of the motivation to “keep going” has been the great feedback and support from all of you.

Thanks also to everyone who has provided ideas and encouragement, especially Jeff Stein from OnTheDash, Ernie and the team at WatchuSeek, Rob from Topper’s and the TAG Heuer team in Switzerland, China and Hong Kong.

Looking forward, there will be much more to come, including a re-design of the website that will hopefully make stories easier to find. Onwards and Upwards!

    Very many congratulations on reaching this milestone. You've created a terrific website and I for one check it daily for updates – its just about the most useful resource on what Tag Heuer is up to and for thoughts and opinions on the entire Heuer universe. Best of luck and best wishes for the future.

    In addition to placing my kudos among the rest you so richly deserve here, of course I want to recognize your part in making history with the first real identifications of the Heuer / TAG Heuer watches worn by Timothy Dalton as James Bond in "The Living Daylights." Top marks!

    Congratulations! I've enjoyed everyone of your 107 (that many?) stories. You've done a brilliant job with this site!

    I wish you a great second year!

    Great site. Congratulations.

    I bought my first high-end watch this year for my 40th (calibre 12 Monaco), and your site especially (along with a few others) has really driven my interest in vintage Heuer watches. I can see a very expensive past time ahead of me!

    Keep up the good work.
