    It really is an amazing piece. Most people who see it on me tell me they love it. I first wanted the Black Faced one, but I think I liked the blue one over time better...

    Due to the size at 41mm, it really isn't an in your face watch. I find it to be a good "tweener" watch - not too casual and not overly dressy, but somewhere in between.

    Goes great with jeans and a business casual environment.

    Its an iconic look made popular by Rolex and the design has lasted decades. thats something to be said about the overall look.

    By saying in your face, I was referring to the fact that it is certainly noticeable! Im sure that's one of the reasons Im drawn to it! Mainly I need a timepiece that has a two tone bracelet and as far as I can find out, Tag is one of a few companies that apply a 20 micron plating on there gold. I would love a Rolex Yachtmaster that looks the same, but its 4 times the price! of course, it does have solid gold links.

    I love my Aquaracer (black ceramic) but I don't like the fact that they didn't even plate the backs of the center links. Not a fan of plated two tone -- it is in your face so unlike with totally gold-tone watches (which can be quite subtle), I think you should either go solid gold or not at all. The blue stainless steel looks much better IMHO.

    Welcome to WUS.

    Crown issues were mainly prevalent on the older 500M. No issues reported on the newer version.

    TAG Heuer was a bit slow to recognize the issue, but did step up and now covers crown issues on the older 500M; under warranty. As for stopping, sporadic reports at best. If you have your heart set on any watch, I recommend researching the Hell out of it before pulling the trigger. With regards to those two issues you've mentioned, don't let them stop you from buying an Aquaracer if you really want one.
