This deal is for some people who can afford expensive watches, but obviously it is not for some people who want to wear Timex.
I am pretty sure some post like this "my timex is better, cheaper and lasts longer than this tag heuer" will be here.
So, the deal is hot for some and cold for others. It is up to you to buy the cheap watch or the expensive watch. Expensive watch doesn't mean that it is a bad deal. Different people might have different opinion. Otherwise, there won't be rich and poor.

For the most part, the words "high end" and "battery" shouldn't go together, IMO
Well, no. There are quite a few high-end quartz watches out there. Google "High Accuracy Quartz" (or HAQ) watches. For example, Breitling's Superquartz or Grand Seiko Quartz. These watches maintain absurd accuracy, something like +/- 10sec/yr or better, often incorporating complicated features like active thermal compensation.

Honestly I don't really understand the market for those watches - my $50 atomic G-Shock does a better job maintaining accuracy then the best HAQ. I'm merely pointing out that these pieces exist, and they do have a following.

There are also plenty of high end quartzes that don't even qualify as "HAQ". If you don't believe me, the Omega X-33 would like a word with you.

No I'm not saying that.. but many believe they are buying a quality watch when they spend $1000+ on a Tag Heuer, when in reality they are buying jewelry with a $20 movement in it. If you know what you're buying and are happy, all the better for you Smilie
But that's exactly the point I'm trying to make. What, in your mind, negates the "quality" of a watch based solely on the movement? In other words, why can't a watch with a $20 movement be a "quality watch"? The core function of a watch is not the sole component in it's value. You can spend $2500 on an Omega Seamaster with a quartz movement in it. A year after you buy it, it's still worth almost as much. It's not as though anyone is "ripped off". Style and design matters. And I'd argue that with Tag, the quality of the case matters substantially, since many use it as a diving watch.

I hate threads like these. I am so happy for the sale, but I hate the people that come in here and mock those of us that want to buy a Tag or other high end watch. This is not the thread for you. Leave and go find a deal on a timex for $15 and be happy.

That being said, I hope that they have the Calibre 16 at a good price, I have been wanting it for about 7 months now, but didn't want to pay the price at a local retailer.

I guess we're looking at it from different perspectives. I don't really care about the "value", I chose the watch I have because I wanted something aesthetically pleasing but also something well-engineered and, for me, that meant automatic or manual.

Hence my saying "For the most part" Wink

I've just re-read the thread and I can't see anyone mocking anyone for wanting to buy a high end watch?

i honestly just picked up my rolex about 6 days ago, i thought I had to manually wind it up because the crown on it pulls out for you to wind in position 1, I need to not wind it up for a couple days to see if it winds itself.

I agree with this.

I'd definitely spring for a low-end Omega over this watch. Even one without the co-axial movement.

If you want great value for your watches, you should honestly spring for a Rolex. The market for rolex parts is actually quite small, making parts very expensive. A rolex genuine movement probably costs 2K, which is 40% of the watch cost right there.

IWC's are also like that. Breitling not so much....just my two cents. If something goes wrong with my Breitling, I buy the part I need off ebay and then get it repaired at a local place.

I have watches for that too. I own a Seamaster that's an automatic and when I was shopping the fact that it was an automatic was very important to me, I wanted nothing to do with the quartz models. But that doesn't mean that every watch I own, or every watch I spend decent money on, HAS to be an automatic. I own 6 watches now, 2 of them are automatics.

Possibly more depending in the functions. I tried to find a price for the 4130 movement but that info isn't easy to find online. Someone I know in the watch industry once floated around a figure of $6000 but I don't know how accurate that is.

You're kind of all over the place here. First of all, you're spring for a low end Rolex over WHICH watch? ALL Tag Heuers? That's certainly an overstatement, since Tags do make automatics. Further, you're arguing Buicks and Cadilacs. Even a low end new Omega goes for like $1800. And it'll be a quartz anyway, the autos have a lower entry point. The low end Tags will go for about $600 with this sale. Yea, you're getting more but you're also paying 3x more. If you're going to talk about alternatives, price matters. I spent about $400 on my Tag, second hand. Telling me that I should've opted for a $1800 Omega that still goes for 4 digits secondhand just shows a lack of understanding for basic shopping technique. Budget is a factor. At least put forth an alternative in the same ballpark.

I'm still not sure why the cost of movement is what is driving your perceived value of the brand. If value retention is important to you, shouldn't the OVERALL depreciation be what you're looking at? Why focus on just the movement? I'd concede that Tags lose value quicker than other top brands, but that doesn't mean that they're suddenly worth the same as Fossil watches the moment you take the plastic off.

tag automatics uses off the shelf ETA movements (perhaps modified in house)

Weird thing about this was that the prices and also watches available fluctuated very frequently.


I was only keeping a close eye on any of the grand carrera's they made available and they were typically between $1000-$2000 off "retail" price. For example, if the retail price of a watch was $4000, you may have seen it for $2100 or something.


I think I remember seeing the grand carrera calibre 17 for like $3000 or something like that.

Speaking of Omega, anyone know of a good way to buy new without being charged marked up prices from authorized sellers?
