This beautiful watch was my first piece of expensive jewellery and a gift for my 21st. This isn't the type of watch you can buy yourself every year to keep up with the times and also you wouldn't need to as its a timeless classic. It is expensive but worth every penny.
I have had my watch for 6 years and replaced the battery after 5 years. To replace the battery the price varies depending on which jeweller you go to but its generally about £80.00 and it takes 1-2 weeks to get it back. They have to send it to Tag so as it can be opened under a pressurised system so as it remains waterproof. I do like the feeling you get from sending it off, it further verifies you've a good piece of jewellery on your wrist and you almost feel proud to be wearing it. I certainly do and so much so I recently bought another Tag for more fancier occasions.
This style watch comes with different coloured faces so there are options however I love my mother of pearl.
When buying this product the jeweller will make sure it fits and they will take out links if its too big. I recommend keeping those links in the original box with the guarantee for both insurance purposes or if you decide to sell it on. You never know you may need the links one day also.
The bezel is something I like to fiddle with but it is sturdy and hard wearing, I've yet to scratch the stainless steel or glass face and I wear it alongside bracelets.
The clasp to close it is strong and safe so you don't need to worry about it becoming loose and falling off. I never got used to keeping my watch on all the time so take it off daily and the clasp is still strong. My sister however keeps it on at all times (sleeps and showers with it) so sometimes sends it off to get cleaned professionally as dirt can get stuck between the links in the bracelet.
The mechanism to change the time and date is as with most watches I believe. You screw it anti-clockwise to open it and then pull it out twice. The first click will be to change the date and the second click (furthest away from the watch face) is to adjust the time). Then you push it back in and push it in as you screw it. Be careful to really push and screw it in tight until it doesn't move any more as if you don't you're essentially leaving room for water to leak inside and this can break the watch. Repairing these watches isn't cheap and you have to make sure it goes to a genuine Tag Heuer repair company.
The beauty of this watch is that it always looks new, doesn't fade in colour and can be worn with any fashion as it doesn't date.
