Arrived well packaged and brand new as advertised. Came in a wooden TAG Heuer box with numbered/signed COSC card; plastic wrapping on caseback and around the deployment clasp - a good sign that it hasn't been worn before. The serial number was intact and unaltered as well.
Now, about the watch. This model is the first automatic chronometer capable of measuring 1/10th of a second, and was awarded with the prestigious Grand Prix de I'Horlogerie de Geneve award, among many others. The movement is the Zenith El Primero, and ticks at 36,000 VPH, the second smoothest of the TAG Heuer line - right behind the Calibre 360.
Construction is excellent and the contrast between the brushed and polished stainless steel is amazing in person. The rubber strap is also softer than the ones used for the Carrera Calibre 16 line, and matches the industrial design of this piece very well - also blending in with the 44mm case and making it seem smaller than it is.
The dual-antireflective finish is very effective and seems to be a higher quality than other manufacturers', albeit keep in mind that the outer layer will eventually wear out through natural use.
Now, the not-so-good (my opinions):
- TAG Heuer should've designed the dial to be bi-compax and homologous at both the 3 and the 9'clock. The 9'clock shows the seconds and has two issues.
1) You cannot hack the second to sync it with atomic time.
2) 1-20sec is represented by a black needle, 21-40 sec again by a black needle, and 41-60 by a red needle. This makes distinguishing 1-40sec impossible. A three color combination should've been used (Example: 1-20sec black, 21-40sec yellow, 41-60 sec red).Read more ›
Tha watch in my opinion it's a work of art and one of the best pieces of tag.
I strongly recommend it
A must own if you love Tag Heuer and especially if you like me are amazed by the quality/price as well as the technology innovation (caliper balance and first watch ever capable of measuring 1/100th of a second). Well done Tag Heuer!
