Why Tag Heuer?

Dont have a lot of experience with the brand though I am familiar with it. I don't really have interest in adding one. I have an idea of the perception of the brand. What's your feedback?

I think they have some great designs and are a great entry level luxury option. IMO much of the snobbery is unjustified

Well, I sincerely believe that they are very good watches, well built and good materials, I love Tag Heuer, I currently have 3 and I once had 5

Tag was my entry into the world of watches. I think you get a lot for your money, especially in the Carrera line. The WBN2111.FC6505 may be one of the nicest looking dress watches I've ever seen, and list price was $3k, for the quality of the product, that is really hard to beat. I recently got the CBN2A10.BA0643 as my first chronograph, and it's beautiful and incredibly well made, and again, for the price, difficult to beat. I won't say it's better than the Speedmaster or the Chronomaster Sport, I like Omega ( have the AT) and Zenith, but I think they are very comparable in terms of quality. Also if you haven't checked out the new Glassbox models, they are stunning. Just my 2 cents.

Nothing stood out in a bad way. Seemed solid.

There certainly are.

I think because they got a bit flashy/carried away with the designs at some point (they鈥檙e now reverting) and also because they鈥檝e used ETA movements for a long time on watches that were well over 2K. Maybe because they really leaned into smartwatches at some point too 馃槀

Love the green on your Tag chrono!

Well those are good ways to alienate the watch lovers lol

great brand with history that makes a lot of items that are mass market/not for enthusiasts. If they make an offering that speaks to you, go for it.
