No. No they don't.

Wish I had a few hundred to spare. Some great looking watches

I bought a nice TISSOT in the jan sales which I was told by someone in the industry that they use the innards as Tag.

I wonder if I can finally convince my wife to get my engagement present!

They both use ETA movements, like many watch makers. However it also depends on how much they modify them.

greenun

No. No they don't.



No, poor people don't.

I have a watch worth over 1000

Where it when hitting the town or goin nice places

Comes out on special days

tags dont sell well, hence suppossed "savings" to attract customers.

poor quality too

get an omega or rollie

My 2p

If one wants 'swiss' movt and swiss quality, go for a tissot ETA
if one wants to show off, go for a Rolex

these Tags, Rado s and Longines are not worth the money IMHO.

Good deal for somebody wanting a TAG though, voted HOT.

No, poor people don't.



Lol. So you've just proved me right, not every man needs a very expensive watch.

Don't be daft lad.

Yeah, Omega are better quality, but that doesn't mean Tag are "poor quality". Tag are made to a fantastic spec.

I have this, and I've never been so glad to see it's not in the sale :

Saying that, it's a few years old now. If you can buy a good watch it can also be an investment, my tag F1 has probably went up in value since I bought it (Family friend is a jeweler)

I see Tissot mentioned (I've a Moto GP Tissot watch, I'm a motorsport fan, can you tell?), I do believe they are linked to Swatch rather than Tag although don't quote me. I used to collect Swatch watches also (In fact wearing one now) and for value for money I can't recommend them enough. As for Tag they're priced by demand and have always been popular. I had this argument before someone saying the're 50 quids worth, they're not though, they're worth what people are willing to pay for them (_;)

Edit : In fact looks like Swatch are linked to Tissot, Omega, Tag Heuer and a whole lot more

I agree but why on earth would you waste it on a tag? Really watches are available for this money, not a pseudo luxury brand that sold it soul years ago.

No they are not. Tag are notorious for poor quality bezels and dials and to compound matters their customer service is abysmal. They make a few decent pieces in the 4k+ Grand Carrera range but the rest of their stuff is rebadged, ETA tat sold to the ignorant consumer as "luxury". In fact you would not struggle to get 30% by just asking in most AD's.

They have no modern pedigree and they persistently refer to their achievements of yesteryear. Both Rolex and Omega can be considered genuine luxury brand - they makes some fantastic, if not exclusive - watches. The Sea Dweller / speed master Professional for example are both head and shoulders above anything made by Tag.

Save your money, if your in the market for a luxury watch do yourself a favour and do some homework first and skip the consumer tat.

I don't disagree that are are better makes with superior quality, but generic statements don't help anyone.

Any designer's entry level (cost) items are poor quality if made in modern times, such with reducing cost of components and increasing price of item.

But to pigeon hole an entire brand doesn't help anyone.

I did acknowledge the Grand Carrera stuff :). But honestly that's just about where the quality ends. I have had 5-6 Tag's during my 20's (in my ignorant youth) and they have all moved on - and four of them had problems - one even had a movement failure. Common stuff like the numbers falling off for example (a common problem if you Google it) and bezels not lining up - problems that have no right to be evident in a 1-2k sport watch.

In my old age have moved towards Omega, Ulysses Nardin and even some vintage Seiko diver stuff (which by the way is some are some best value watches available today!). If you want a Tag great - and this is probably the cheap way to get one (new) - but just be aware of what you are getting for you money - style over substance.

Well I had an Omega Seamaster myself which had a couple of problems, but I believe every brand has their issues.

No I understand what you're saying, and if people are thinking of saving up (or smashing the credit card in half) for a high end watch, then go the whole hog and get something decent!

For balance....

- You can get 20% off Omega RRP at most ADs. 30% off Tag RRP without too much hassle.
- Expect your watch to be worth 20-25% less than you paid 2nd hand if it's an Omega or Tag Heuer.
- Quality on both brands is excellent, I say that as an owner of an Omega (wearing as I type this) and 4 Tag Heuers, even the cheapest Tag Heuer (F1 models) is leagues ahead of the likes of Tissot for quality.
- Of my friends who own similar timepieces the only issue that has cropped up is a collegues Planet Ocean failed within 12 months of ownership. I've had no issues on any of my more expensive watches, it's the cheaper 'beater' Seikos that suffer in my experience, Citizen seem much more better for a cheap watch, I refuse to buy Seiko nowadays.
- Many high end watches use the same ETA supplied movements, some are customised more than others. You can buy a Chris Ward watch for £600 that's the same basic internals as many very high end watches, and the likes of Bell & Ross don't even bother to customise internals. Heck even some IWC watches use ETA movements that you'll find in watches half the price.

If you want to invest in a watch buy a classic style Rolex, because the price of those only ever goes up, and they are geniunely quality items with custom designed internal movements - that's why they're so expensive.

PS - hold off buying any watches until the sales start, they're always reduced, and beaverbrooks have a habit of reducing their stock further from about Jan 13th onwards. HTH.

I agreed with just about everything you said right up to the Rolex comment..... I have a CW C60 Trident on atm as my daily watch, its great and as you say is basically a £2k watch for £550.

I also have a Rolex Daytona in gold. Its a bling appeal watch for special occasions and cost me about the same as a new family car (which I consider a bargain for the record / haters) however it is not super high quality, in fact its no better than a couple of my omega's - its image however is - and that is what you pay for ultimately.

IWC, JLC, Patek, Ulysses Nardin, Glasshutte original, Blancpain, Chopard are all well above Rolex in terms of desirability and quality they will also have a greater future value. If your serious about a really good watch look to them and you cannot really go wrong with any of them

If I was spending over £5k on a watch I'd want an in-house movement, not an ETA movement. Some of those brands you mention use ETA and unlike the Rolex movements they're not bullet proof like the Rolex - when I say Rolex I mean Rolexs you can buy new today, as Rolex has in it's history used a zenith movement on the Daytona.

So for me, in-house would be the way forward, and that would probably mean Rolex, unless I could stump up for a Jaeger-LeCoultre master compressor :-)

This is the only TAG I am interested in:

Cold, Tags suck, they're just a Tissot with good marketing. Get a Baume & Mercier or an Omega if you have £3000

You buy an expensive watch when you have nothing left to buy

If the build quality of these watches are so called great how come they all seem to have had faults. I have had regular £100-£200 watches and only fault I got is new battery ?
