Picked up my Tag Heuer, Classic 2000 blue face today at Diamonds and Dials on west 34 street in Manhattan.Thanks to the information on this site I knew just what to look for to spot the "Genuine Article" and at last I had my watch.
The bracelet needed some links removed so I went to Macys across the street,to pass the time.When I returned the watch fitted perfectly and I had the warranty card stamped and in my sweaty little hand.
I left the shop and quickly checked the box,no warranty registration papers....returned to shop and was told it was not with the newer Tags..it was all done online.....stepped outside and checked the watch again,NO SERIAL NUMBER, I could swear I had checked this when I went in.
Back inside I went where I was assured it was a genuine Tag and the warranty from Tag was valid,argued over and back for 25 minutes and they suddenly produce an identical Tag with serial number intact from behind the counter(mine was a special order, where did this come from!).........I refused that and insisted on a full refund which it took a further 20 minutes of arguing to get.
I wish to thank Derek and Herb for steering me in the right direction and also the owners of this website,I was saved ($865) from an expensive lesson.
