This watch is normally £900, and is still £900 at Goldsmiths. So this is a good saving if you are after this watch. There are other sources like Swiss Watches Direct who have this at £745. So its still a good deal.

Possible further savings (not sure if it will work with sale items) .
10% extra saving when signing upto Earnest Jones emails.
Cash back upto 10% with Quidco.

The description on the site says Stainless steal strap, however this comes with the Nato style fabric strap.

I did see that, but not sure if it was available with sale items. I'll put it in the heading as a possible further reduction, but won't change the price.

Obviously you can buy a Quartz watch for under a £10, and if thats your price bracket thats not a problem. You will find some OK - Good looking watches. However this is a higher priced manufacture hence the higher price. I know I've bought Quartz watches at double this price.

From this dealer the same model with the stainless steel strap is £1000.

You could always buy an after market strap, and still save money. Plus when you come to re-sell the watch the original strap will be unmarked.

Yet people are changing Stainless steel and titanium straps for Nato's, I prefer a stainless steel strap too.

Jenna Jameson does.
I guess this is meant to be a retro looking strap? Probably best in buying a used Tag as the mass produced ones seem to half in value pretty quickly. Better of buying a special edition limited run Seiko for half the money.

If your going for Seiko, go for the Grand Seiko.

Watches like this one..is why people watch collectors have issues with Tag.

Poorly designed, quartz for automatic price...and kind of tacky.

Not to say Tag don't make some classics... Monaco etc. but this isnt nice.

Many better alternatives even at the reduced price... Hamilton, Tissot, Seiko etc

If you're in for this model, then it's a good deal regardless of taste.

If you buy this you are a mug. luxury (or expensive) watches should have a mechanical movement. That is why they are expensive. Lots of moving parts, hand built etc... it goes some way to justifying the cost. This is a £5 movement (it will be a Japanese Miyota in all likelihood) and you’re paying for a case and an idiot tax. If you want a better quartz watch buy a Seiko
Quartz makes it a cheap watch? Patek Phillipe make quartz watches. And quartz is far more accurate than an automatic.
I'm not a Tag fan but this is decent value for the brand if you're in the market for one.

The issue is... it’s far cheaper to produce a quartz movement than it is to produce an automatic movement, therefore when you see a relatively standard watch with a quartz movement costed at £900 RRP - people question the value.
A formula 1 watch ?? Next they'll be making F1 engines

You talk absolute nonsense! This does not have a Japanese movement, it CANNOT have anything but a Swiss movement, as the watch is labeled 'Swiss Made'. It would be breaking Swiss law if it contained a Miyota.

The movement is likely a Swiss Ronda. This will be far more accurate than a Chinese, or even Japanese movement. My 16yr old Tag F1 gains a couple of seconds a year, my casios gain several a month.

Also there is much more to a quality watch besides the movement, case finishing, dial work, quality of materials etc. You can buy £50-60 Seikos with auto movements...the attention to detail won't be as good as this Tag, I know I own both.

I wouldn't say that it is a poorly designed watch although I'd agree that a quartz watch at this price is ridiculous. Almost as ridiculous as an Omega quartz at 3 times that price.

The 10% email discount can’t be used on ANY Tag’s, Omega’s, Breitling’s etc even if they are full priced items.
That is the ugliest Tag I ever seen.

It's a bit of a scam. I bought a £3400 Omega watch from them a couple of months ago, thinking the code would take off 10% (the item was not already on sale), but got a message at checkout: "This code is not valid on this item.".

It seems they pick and choose!

Really? I think it's a rather handsome classic diver style, the blue dial and bezel sit well with the orange flourishes. If I would change anything, it would be the nato, something with a little orange in it would play off the dial better.


What's ugly about it?
Gross. Looks like a Flik Flak.
£630? Think I'll pass.

You can get mech, even auto, on eBay for 15quid I've seen. I guess people pay for brand and build quality - yes even that case and face. Also quartz pretty hassle free with generally no gummed up lube.

its just whatever pleases you.I don't like the strap,the face any of it really.I like inner dials chrono etc on my watches.Also for me ithas to be a black or a white face.Just my opinion
Nice. I love a blue watch and Tag Heuer but just got a Hamilton Pan Europ.
I like blue faced watches , problem with Tag is everyone thinks they are fakes . I can get an extra 10% off but I really don't need another watch ! Do I ?

The ad says stainless steel strap , I wonder if I ordered it I could complain that it was not as advertised and get an stainless steel strap ?
Just an omega seamaster want to be
