I purchased the watch and after about a month it had condensation in the crystal after three months. I sent it into the swinford repair center and they sent it back. It worked for a month then started running very slow. Then it stopped. I sent it in again and they returned it. It worked until I tried the stop watch, then that stopped, followed by the watch. AGAIN sent it in. It was returned and was working. It worked for another two months then stopped altogether. So, right now it is at the repair shop again. At this point, I just want another watch. So, do yourself a favor and don't buy it. My advise.
The dials are a bit difficult to read because it is white on white. However, of all the Tag Carrera models I have seen, this was still the nicest. Just wish it was slightly thinner in width.
The watch has several high-polished bits that can make scuffing an issue. I would not recommend this for casual/everyday wear.
The watch delivered from Amazon came scratched 4 days before Christmas and Amazon's response to the issue was not sufficient and frankly outright cold & indifferent.
If you are in the market for a $1000+ watch, I suggest you save yourself much heartache & grief and purchase from an authorized dealer. At least you know you're getting a top-notch product, free of defects, and the item will be covered by a true warranty.
I've learned my lesson that you pay a little extra to get all the extra perks, like getting quality, friendly service; something you just cannot get from a numbers-centric online retailer.
My mini impression:
- This is true yet totally deceiving. Due to the long flared lugs and a good 17mm case thickness, the Carrera looks and wears like a 45mm watch in every way. I would not even consider this model for smaller wrists at all (unless you like bigger watches). Due to the thin bezel, the dial opening is big and the domed sapphire only adds to the large appearance of the watch .
-Very fine machined brushed bracelet with mixed polished/brushed links. The polished links in the center are actually separate pieces so indirectly, it's a 5 link bracelet. Machined and stamped dual opening clasp. Very nice and right up there with Omega bracelets (I don't own Omega but handled it many many times at my local ADs)
- AR coating on both sides (some argue this but personally, I love it). Even at angles, the dial stands out with the whole "crystal-less" look.
Movement (Caliber 16):
- Tag uses the well known v7750 and applies their own touch (decorated and movement parts are more polished than stock and apparently, Tag fine-tunes the Caliber movements for accuracy as well).
This is the simple reason why I got attracted to the Carrera when I first saw it in a TV commercial. The overall dial is not really silver but a shade of silverish white.Read more ›
I could not be happier. The watch is way overpriced...but, hey, you know that going in. I wanted a Tag and decided it was worth the money. I wanted an upscale watch brand.
Last thought, I saw this particular model being sold on Ebay USED and it went for almost $2,000. Why would anyone not buy a BRAND NEW watch from Amazon for roughly $350 more with a warranty?
Recently took a trip to Aruba, 3 days into the trip, I've starting to notice the condensation/haze to form again and this time it's really bad, day after day more and more condensation/haze are building up, it becomes like vapor formed underneath the entire crystal, it's so foggy that its pretty difficult to tell the time. Again never took in to the pool, nor got in contact with salt water, I guess it's something about the humid and hot environment.
Bottom line, very disappointed to experience such problem on a so called "luxury watch". Never expected 2 same watch having the same problem, and Amazon is not taking any responsibility other than referring to their 2 year warranty.
