    Thread keeps helping me choose watches to wear. This was my first “big” purchase. Would I spend the money I paid for it on a different piece? Sure, but I still enjoy wearing it.

    I like the racing heritage of Tag, being a bit of a car guy myself. I don’t love the overall sporty feel of the line though; just not my thing.

    Along with being automatic movement, that Calibre 1887 can be worn both casually or dressy which was part of the appeal. It’s also a tank and doesn’t feel like the Panerai or Breitling

    I think we're all on the same page. There are varying degrees of knowledge in here, and the newer peeps can benefit from mistakes of our past (see my quartz Tag Aquaracer purchase 15+ years ago). Feel like the post that spurned this conversation was someone looking for help, which I attempted to provide.

    The F1 isn't a bad looking watch... But Helios is twice the watch at 1/2 the price

    Yes, and that’s also a danger too. At X price, if I add some more, I can get Y watch brand/model. As you get closer, well, if I save X more, I can get Z brand/model instead.

    I’ve always wanted a TAG but was always too cheap. I finally broke down this weekend and got an Aquaracer 43mm chronograph. Love it.

    I don't know much about watches so been trying to watch and read to educate myself. Just learned about Doxa last week in a couple videos. These old ones are pretty cool imo.

    Just purchased an Apple Watch, Series 7
    For my wife & it still killed me. She assured me in no way would it impact her desire for a Speedy 38 or Santos De Cartier.

    Went to a watch show thing Thursday night and got to try on a lot of watches I'd otherwise never get to. Really glad I did bc it showed me how differently some watches wear. Like I really like the Daytona but it wears really small. The 40mm Sub wore much bigger to me than the 40mm Daytona. I guess it was the bulkier bezel? And I feel much better about a watch like a 44mm Deep Sea. It's big but doesn't feel like an anchor on my wrist.

    I have the 43mm SD50 and it doesn't at all wear like a 43mm to me. Wears like a 41.5mm and not too thick. That was the one concern I had when I bought that watch and it was easily dismissed upon first wear.

    The variations between brands and models is fascinating. I love trying on a watch and getting surprised by how it wears.

    There have been a lot of robberies at gunpoint for people's watches in BH and Weho lately - pretty damn scary to be honest.

    Several have been broad daylight while people are eating lunch.

    What's funny is I guarantee this happens pretty often so these idiots are risking serious jail time for a worthless watch.

    Would've been good to know before I spent most of last week walking around BH and WeHo. I actually thought at one point "maybe I should've left the watch in the room" before thinking "nah, this is LA. Shit's a dime a dozen."

    It's been a recent phenomena - also one of the attempted robbers got the shit kicked out of them on Melrose last week. They went after someone without realizing he had a squad inside.

    So definitely don't wear a nice watch in LA anytime soon - we've already had 4 armed robberies for watches/purses tonight in BH and Weho and it's 7:46 PM here.

    We have straight up organized crime doing this - happens every day/night now.
