purchase experience. My only concern is the fact that the watch was shipped with no signature required, since it falls below Amazon's dollar amount of $700. Not a good policy on a valuable item such as this.
One improvement that I'd make is to make the hands more visible. Under certain conditions, usually interior lighting, they really blend in with the face forcing you to twist your wrist around until the right angle reveals the location of the hands. While you'll do better with a black face in this department, the silver face and black bezel, in my opinion, is still sharper in appearance.
As for authenticity, I compared the watch and its packaging (box, protective stickers) to that of the department store's and I feel confident about its origin. However, while I found all of the stickers to be intact, I noticed a few small strands of hair stuck on the inside of the band which indicated to me that the watch didn't come straight from Tag untouched. I decided to live with this as had I bought this from a department store, they'd likely have sold me a piece from the case tried on by numerous customers anyway.
In all fairness I haven't used it diving yet but I don't see any reason this watch wouldn't meet it's 200 meter rating as long as the screw-in crown is properly secured.
So I reset it to the correct time. I waited another full day and checked it against the speaking clock and it was running 5 mins slow.
I took it into a Tag dealership and they tested it, without opening it.
They came to the conclusion that the circuit is not Tag, but an American equivalent.
They could replace the circuit, but it would still lose 5-6 secs a day.
I have recently returned the watch for a refund. Disappointed to have paid that money for
supposedly an accurate time piece.
