Re: Tag vs Heuer
In Response To: Tag vs Heuer ()

Something in Jim's post just tripped a rusty switch in my head.

"the character of Heuer is shown and expressed by the earlier Heuer models".

I whole heartedly agree and I don't think I could have phrased the sentiment better. BUT (you knew this was coming) does anyone else feel a change in the wind blowing from out of TAG?

Starting with the line of Classic reissue models and continuing into the new models with Zenith movements I am starting to gain some respect for TAG.

I admit to being a diehard Omega/Rolex guy who wouldn't waste a match to burn all the TAG trash I've seen but I like to think that they are now on the path to regaining the respect of the fine watch world.

Am I overly optimistic and this is just a ploy to sell more discount/department store quartz junk or do the folks at TAG finally understand what made Jack Heuer's watches so wonderful?

Is there a chance TAG can exhibit some of this "character" Jim pointed out?

Thanks for the post Jim, it made me think, and I enjoy that once in a while.
