Great watch. Looks fantastic both on and off. I have had a few comments on how nice the watch is but no one seemed to know that it was a Tag Carrera. This version with the day/date (rather than just the date version of this watch) is bigger and is more classy so was worth the extra couple of hundred dollars for this version. I have small wrists but it was easy to set the size of the strap myself. Ordered from Amazon.com as was the second cheapest place to get it and at least I knew I could trust Amazon. However, it didnt come with the standard 2 year's manufacturers gaurantee which I didnt realise when buying, and only found out after when I saw the gaurantee card was missing from the box, but I guess I got it cheap enough and Amazon offer their own gaurantee. I saw this in black too but this brown is much nicer and is classy. Its a dark brown and at night or low light you cant tell its not black though. Only other thing is the Tag logo is not large enough to see properly unless you really look closely and is silver on silver so people keep asking what make it is and when you spend 2500+ dollars on a watch you need people to know - after all, in business the first thing a man looks at his business associate is his watch to see how succesful he is :) All in all happy with my purchase.

I've owned this beautiful and classic TAG Heuer Carrera Day & Date for a couple of years now and I still find myself staring at it on my wrist. I own (and have owned) many high-end watches including the Omega Planet Ocean and Seamster 300M and this Carrera stands up well with any of them. The design is a classic and in fact TAG Heuer has now incorporated this same design (minus the "day" function") into many of their new 2013 line of Carrera watches. My Carrera Day & Date receives many many compliments each time I wear it. It is a BIG watch so be sure your wrist can handle both the width (43.7mm) and thickness (16.7mm). Because of it's thin bezel, the watch wears bigger than it's size and due to its thickness it wears high on the wrist. The brown dial, bezel and strap are quite unique and very sharp looking especially with the red accents, for both casual and dress wear (not so sure about formal).
The TAG Carrera Day & Date is a classic TAG Heuer design carrying forward the Jack Heuer racing heritage of this historic watch company. I highly recommend it!

The dark brown color of this watch is very appealing. It looks a little more classy in this color, and the small dials are still very easy to read. Fairly simple to operate. The watch arrives nonworking, so you may want to wind it up a bit (self-wind or knob wind) and set the date/time before giving so that your ecstatic recipient can put it on right away. The watch comes in a very cool, nice quality, black Tag case.
The is no international warranty card with this watch. Instead, Amazon provides its own 2 year warranty. My only concern is how good of a repair place does Amazon contract with to send such a nice watch? Hopefully, the quality of the watch will far outstrip any need for repairs in the next couple years, or ever...

Ordered this watch from Amazon for a great price. I just hope its real, and I hope its new (not refurbished or something). I feel a little bit iffy about buying it from Amazon, but its awesome looking and feels great. Highly recommended watch for casual and even formal attire.

I bought this watch couple weeks ago. I like to collect watches, so far my experience in buying watches from Amazon has been quite satisfactory. TAG Carrera watch has many functions and looks very stylish. I would definitely recommend this product, not to mention 30% off the retail price. The flip side is that you get Amazon two year warranty instead of TAG warranty but still worth buying. Good Luck!!

Bought this on a Cruise, $3,900. A few hundred dollars more than what Amazon lists this watch but then again I have the peace of mind if anything goes wrong with it its covered by the warrenty. Don't know how these vendors on Amazon work but I have heard some horror stories.
Anyway what a great watch. I have another Tag (F1) for everyday and yet I can't make myself wear it anymore because it feels like a Timex compared to this one. I was going to go all in and get the Monaco but this feels so much better on my wrist. I have had it now for two months, wear it everyday, its dead accurate, and I can leave it of the auto-winder for a long time without it stopping. For me TAGs are the watches to get, especially the Carreras.
