    well... I bought that Aquaracer 500m ceramic a while ago, wore it for less than a couple weeks and due to other incoming watches, never had it on since.

    And I can't even sell that watch in as new condition at a price that the local used watch dealers sell old 500m Aquaracers for. The market apparently thinks they're worth nothing. Bit of a shame.
    One watch, many opinions.

    Sorry to hear that:( Yeah, I read about it but you know what. I don't care for... I wanted to have one good entry/mid luxury brand diver: Rolex, I can't afford yet; Omega, despite great quality is a bit overpriced and it seems like everybody here is raving about it. Not my cup of tea. Plus, the PO is a bit too chunky for me. TAG is recognizable but flies under the radar here. I like it that way. Definitely better value proposition than PO, at least for me... And the size is perfect, too. I'm leaning more toward slimmer profile divers.

    I bought it from a grey market seller and the discounted price was fair. I know I could have gotten it even cheaper if I waited for it to show up in f29. I'm just a bit apprehensive to buy used expensive watches sight unseen. Anyways, good luck selling yours.

    Re: AQUARACER 500M CLUB

    So today, I decided to go to the TAG boutique here in NYC to have my new Aquaracer resized rather than doing it myself... Great decision. Nice place to see, small though, very friendly staff and resizing was free. Plus, I saw, and tried on, one of my grails: Monaco;) Even tried Monza, too... Liked it even better.

    My Aquaracer fits like a glove now;) What a classy dress diver. I am absolutely flabbergasted how slim the ceramic Aquaracer 500 is for a 500m diver!!!

    Congrats on your new Tag! I don't have mine anymore, but it was certainly a looker, and mine kept amazing time. Great watch.

    Re: AQUARACER 500M CLUB

    And after about 10 days I'm surprised how great time my Aquaracer keeps. I rarely track it, only when I receive a new watch, for about a week, or two, just to get a rough idea... Actually, my TAG is better than my Shogun, has less variability, moving in the -1sec to +2secs a day range, depending how I wear it and/or rest it overnight, as opposed to my Shogun that fluctuates in a bit wider range: -3 secs to +6secs. So, all I can say, I'm a pretty HAPPY camper;)

    Re: AQUARACER 500M CLUB

    Here is my new 500m, old version I know but I prefer this to the ceramic one. I went for quartz as I need the accuracy. I want to put it on a tag rubber but the price for the FT6015 is £315 which is just silly money for a strap. Has anyone ever fitted a different tag branded rubber strap to this watch, preferably with curved ends? I was thinking about BT0712 see the pic below which is much cheaper but I don't know if it will fit??
