Re: How to spot a fake Tag
In Response To: How to spot a fake Tag ()

: Are there any tell tale signs, visibly, to spot
: a fake Tag watch?

The problem is, there are so many different fakes, so many different real TAG (or any other major brand) model variations and some fakes that are staggeringly close that there is no simple list of signs that will assure you that you can tell every possible fake you might encounter.

The best things you can do to protect yourself from fakes are:

  • Shop only at an authorized or otherwise well known and highly reputable dealers.

  • Don't be so cheap with your money that you shop at shady or questionable sources -- it is sheer stupidity to blow all your money trying to save a few bucks on an expensive purchase.
