There are too many good replicas out there, you can even fool some dealers. Insist on box, papers & original receipt .

Also, dont buy a Tag for investment purposes, but it to wear it.

The first part is not true...many of the old entry level Tags were not replicated..we have only seen copies of the 4000 series. .if it doesn't have the box or papers just get it opened...open it with the tool or you might ruin the back with terrible scratches...
Wolf Bros & Harris at Canal Walk called my Tag 1000 series fake...neither 1 had held 1 before...i embarrassed them when he opened it after i told him he hasn't got enough knowledge. But they were arrogant ..the Director of Wolf Bros apologised but Mr Harris was a wanker.

The second part is correct except for a few models of course

Gave me dad my G-shock.
Fit bits are for the unfit.

IF you are in JHB, Picot&Moss in Sandton can verify the Tag for you, they are the agents up here.

RE: Watches - The 2019 Edition.
I have always wanted a Tag Carrera Calibre 16.

[Image: CV2A1R.BA0799_760330.png?v=1504670839]

To me a beautiful watch and it is obvious that some of the Casio Ediface watches draw inspiration from the Tag so wore Edifaces for years.

But now I have a Garmin Fenix and now it really just seems middle ages to get a watch that only tells the time and date.

RE: Watches - The 2019 Edition.
Im quite a fan of the Garmin watches.

For me id still take an auto though, just something about the engineering that goes into the watch and the fact that it is running on nothing but a spring and a bit in kinetic energy.

Thats exactly what i would love to own, sadly the price(new) is a bit beyond my reach!

This is slightly below market price. It could be a ladies watch. It's a 2000 Series.
