Well the one I bought had a slight style change. I don't believe it's yearly, but there is definitely two slightly different versions.

Anyway, this is a Tag Link Caliber 16.

OIC, nice (and I say that despite not being a TAG fan, finding their range a bit same 'ol same 'ol).

I agree, I'm not a fan of most of their watches, but this one I actually liked, and it was a good bit cheaper than the next cheapest watch I liked (One of the Seamaster 300Ms)

Well I happened to ask about certain Tag frames in the spectacles thread, which you gave some pointers to. (Anyway those frames that I've been looking for were no longer in sale by the time I checked :()

Do you have any recommended merchants for watches you like?


i usually... okay, i only buy pre-owned. i have a few NY/NJ-based dealers i use regularly since i studied there when i was younger.

they find you what you want, hopefully within your budget and offer a return policy if you're unhappy. you pony up for return shipping.

i bought an older used but serviced seamaster (with warranty card, COSC certificate and extract of archives) for a friend recently for US$1.1k including shipping and insurance.

a 15 year old watch and running +1s after a week! awesome.

if you like new, near new, or like new watches, you can try davidsw on rolexforums dot com - i think he's a grey dealer (great inventory and prices and nice service) from... somewhere in central florida.

i've seen some watches nicely priced on amazon but i never bit. watchrecon is another interesting resource if you know which (reputable) seller to buy from.
