I'll preface this review by admitting that I'm a little strange. I generally don't buy things for myself, and have also been told on more than one occasion that I'm difficult to buy presents for.
I really like a nice watch, so every once in a blue moon I indulge myself with a watch. When I say once in a blue moon, my last watch purchase (also a TAG) was about 15 years ago.
Recently I was in Switzerland on a business trip, and learned that watch stores are EVERYWHERE there.....so I ended up looking in multitudes of watch store windows and of course drooling. As the watches were all made there in Switzerland, I thought I might indulge myself there with a bargain, but all the decent watches (including this one) were priced at $2,000 and up.
So I looked in the duty free store, and made pretty much the same discovery.
Having seen both the Longines collection as well as the TAG's, I was bitten by the bug, and was on a mission to find a new watch. I did a bunch of web searching, and after hours on the web ended up........here on Amazon. Which made me feel pretty stupid, as I'm a Prime member and shop here regularly, so was kicking myself for not just coming here in the first place.
Which brings me (finally, I know....) to the point of this review.
I'm a little bit of a watch snob, but one who is on at least a bit of a budget. This is a beautiful watch, that feels and performs as one would expect of a high end Swiss watch -- but for around a thousand less than I could find anywhere else.
Two thumbs up for this one.
I'll most likely wait another 15 years before adding to my collection -- and in the meantime will enjoy this one thoroughly.
