I personally have a Citizen Eco-Drive Satellite Wave that my parents bought me in the Caribbean. It's quite nice.I guess I won't feel like such a rebel anymore for supporting a competing watch maker.
Not sure about this Tag-Heuer being the first official Gran Turismi timekeeper... I remember in GT1/GT2 results screen, there was SEIKO labelee as the official timekeeper.
Furthermore, Tag-Heuer was also the official timekeeper of some of the old F1 games in the 90s.
That's why it says "first official watch", not "first official timekeeper" in my articleNot sure about this Tag-Heuer being the first official Gran Turismi timekeeper... I remember in GT1/GT2 results screen, there was SEIKO labelee as the official timekeeper.
That one you can take up with TAG Heuer:Furthermore, Tag-Heuer was also the official timekeeper of some of the old F1 games in the 90s.
Not really, no.I don't understand the difference - are you referring to that GT Sport smartwatch?
Well, the connection is the precision engineering behind such high-end watches and race cars. Plus, of course, there was a time before digital timing.Always found it weird watch sponsors sell high end analog watches but the sports they sponsor always show a digital clock.
I understand it's a target demographic thing but I never saw the connection between sports timekeeping and expensive watches.
I believe Heuer, Omega, Rolex are all big time motorsport watch brands but its just a marketting excerise really.
Dont be that sad. Sponsorship come and go. That's how most sponsorship term works, it's tied with some time window.Sad if you ask me.
I remember my indifference when Tag Heuer was announced as the 'official watch and time keeper'.
As a GT fan of over fifteen years, it's becoming a bit depressing to follow the gtplanet news articles, especially since they started covering other racing games. Perhaps it's my 'grass is greener' mindset, but whilst other games seem to release the latest and most sought after cars, and incorporate interesting and innovative game mechanics such as the season cycle in Forza Horizon, PD appears to be stuck trying to tie down the best 'official watch and time keeper, or official FIA accreditation. News articles relating to GT Sport tend to be about updated time trials, updated daily races, gtplanet photo or livery competitions, or random corporate partnerships that have no bearing on content or gameplay, and that's going right from its release. We were all excited about the mileage store, but it feels like they gave up on doing anything interesting with that practically from the moment the game was released.
It doesn't feel as if their heart is in creating the most exciting game any more.
