Awesome, sporty watch to have..,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: TAG Heuer Men's CV2A10.FC6235 Carrera Automatic Chronograph Day-Date Watch (Watch)
I recently purchased this watch and I fell in love with it as soon as I opened up the case. The sporty style it portrays, the quality of material, and attention to detail put on making this watch makes every penny spent on it worth it! The leather strap on this watch is of high quality.. if you try to look for imperfections (as I did) you will hardly find any I guess.
I have Baume & Mercier 8591 Classima Chronograph which I bought a little over a year ago; it is gorgeous too but too classy (nothing bad), I get plenty of compliments from the more mature audience. However, for a young guy like me attending university, I can wear this TAG daily while dressing sporty. The Capeland line from B&M is a strong competitor to this watch but fell for this one due to the special pricing held this weekend. Still, I may get the Capeland next!
In short, if you are in the market looking for a sports watch, this is it. Nothing negative to say about this watch (yet) and with 2 years warranty service on it, I don't think I can complaint -so I hope- as Amazon's customer service is superb.
Update 10/24/2012 -5 Months after purchase-
This watch is the bomb! Lot's of compliments and no mechanical failures whatsoever so far. The only thing I have noticed is that the watch gains a minute every 2 or 3 weeks, so I have to adjust the time monthly (if you happen to be picky as I am in regards time keeping).
I am eying its big brother (Tag Heuer Men's CAR2111.FC6266 Carrera Silver Dial Dress Watch) next or one of the Baume&Mercier Capeland line.
Nice grown up watch to have!

I've had mine for about 1 1/2 yrs. ... it gained about 6 sec. per day. Had it serviced, told the 'smith it was gaining 6 sec per day, and he calibrated the watch for me .. he said this was normal and now it either it keeps perfect time! .... pretty impressive for a mechanical automatic chronograph!
