In an earlier post I mentioned that there had been several versions of the Calibre 360 for sale over the last few months. In May a Swiss seller offered the PVD version for a Buy-it-now price of €13,900.From looking at the auction it looks as though the watch sold, although perhaps below this price.
The watch itself is probably the rarest of all modern TAG Heuers- only 10 were made. Can anyone think of another model that has had such a limited production run? I recall that there was a very limited production run of a platinum Tag 6000 series in the early 1990’s, but that’s all I could think of that comes close in terms of rarity.
Even putting rarity aside, it’s a great looking watch- the detailing on the dial and the contrast between the red, black and silver make this really stand out. The closest to this look that TAG offer today is the Grand Carrera RS2 and the upcoming Carrera 36 RS2 Caliper Ti. Both great watches, but are not quite as elegant as the Calibre 360.
If you like your watches black and rare, here is a link to several other watches from Tempus, an event held by a The Hour Glass in Singapore
