Are TAG Heuer good watches?

Hi guys this is my first time posting in the watch section because i am starting to have more of a interest to start collecting. I have a Rolex Oyster Perpetual GMT Master but am looking for a different color for some variety with my wardrobes or different occasions. I am also looking at something versatile and almost everyday.

I thought i'd post here to ask the more knowledgeable guys. Would you guys recommend TAG's Aquaracers, Formula 1, or Carreras ?

Here's the Rolex

My humble opinion, there are much better watches for the money than any tag, better built, more fashionable, hold their value better. breitling, hamilton, low end rolex, etc.

Nice rootbeer! If you have your heart set on a Tag, buy it used on TZ, as they it takes a pretty significant hit. I do agree with FEAR though...

Have a peruse at Watch Time (Ebner Publishing), Dec 2010, Last Minute, Page 194

It appears that an "in-house" Carrera Calibre 1887 (with SII patent) is coming out next spring.

I agree in general with most comments above. Having said that, I do like a couple of Tags, and if I were buying one today, it would be a Carrera.

Tags in my opinion look great but i guess they dont hold their value too well. Thats too bad. I looking into Omega's as well.

Tag have some great watches visually and their new in house movement with certification is quite good too. Visually I think that Tag have better looking pieces than Omega but in terms of respect and status Omega wins. Depending on your budget I think you should perhaps look at some Omegas like a Planet Ocean or even some IWC.

I have a Tag Carrera (It was my first watch that I bought for myself about 4 years ago) and it's still in great condition and haven't had any issues *touch wood*. It's a great looking watch and looks good for casual wear but also with a suit etc as it really captures the light with the stainless case and black face.

Like I said, it depends on your budget and your taste. Yes Tag are good watches and they are quite popular so they are recognised but do some research, make sure if you want an in house movement that you get a Carrera. Talk to some dealers to get an idea of what's out there in the same price range.

I hope this helps a bit.

Excellent watches and never have any issues with my Formula 1 and have owned it for over 6yrs. I am not gentle with my watches either ! Also owned a aqua racer that was great for couple of yrs but lost it surfing but if your collecting its great to try them all

Great rootbeer GMT! Love Rolex GMT's.

I have 2 Tags and have never had any isses with them. I have a Carrera that is a few years old and a Tag F1 Chrono PVD black 44mm that is a quartz.

I am selling off my Tag Carrera possibly if you are interested. I have the rubber and the steel bracelet for it. Let me know if you like it.

Thanks for sharing pics of your Tag's. I like the Carrera but like someone posted that for the price of a Carrera you can find something better. If i do get a Tag i'm looking into the Aquaracer Calibre S or Formula 1 (for casual everyday use)

What do you guys think?

We've got a few of them. As others have mentioned, they don't hold their value as well as some others, but they are available for a decent price. We've never had an issue with any of them and get tons of compliments on the looks.

If this was going to be my everyday go to watch I would pick up the pre owned submariner Gil has right now on his site and he is also one of the sponsors. If you do decide to go with the Tag Overstock.com usually has them heavily discounted.

I have had Tag Carrera Chronograph in silver for 5+ years and it still holds time perfect. I've beat the crap out of it too. Always gets compliments wherever I go.

I think the Tag Carreras look alot better than Omega's. Tag's seem to be most compared to Omega's and I compared them when making the purchase and went with the TAG. All personal preference though.
