Re: Newbie question on automatic Tag

: Hi,

: I know this forum is for vintage pieces but I
: could not find any other forum that dealt
: with Tag watches. I just purchased the
: latest model Link Automatic and it does not
: do a very good job of keeping time. I lose
: about 30 - 40 seconds a day. I wear it all
: day and while my day is not active 100% I am
: not just sitting around so I believe that I
: am moving my wrist enough? I have done some
: research and I found that it is not uncommon
: for an automatic watch to lose 5 seconds a
: day but more than 10 could mean a problem. I
: only take the watch off at night before
: going to bed (about 10:00 pm) and I put it
: on right after I get in the shower (about
: 5:45am). I see that there is a repar center
: in New Jersey but I have only been able to
: find an address. Does anybody have an email
: contact/phone number where I can call? I
: bought the watch in St. Thomas at a store
: called Little Switzerland which is owned by
: Tiffany & Co. so it is under warranty
: and I have all of the required info. Any
: help/suggestions/info would be greatly
: appreciated. It is a little frustrating to
: spend this kind of money on a watch and have
: to reset the time every 2-3 days.

: Thanks

: Kevin Pope


TAG Heuer quote the accuracy of their automatic movements as -10 to +20 seconds daily. If your Link is outside of this I'd have it looked at under warranty.
