I have the older model with exposed case back. I ran into the crown screw down issue. It got less and less turns to close then one day wouldn't catch at all. It was just a couple of months after the 2 year warranty. When it noticed more then a whole turn less I did bring it to the original AD and they said it was fine. I should of pressed the issue then. After it finally broke completely I went to another local AD.
Like I said this is a couple of months afer the 2 year warranty. TAG would not sell parts to AD. Its at TAG now and going to cost me 450 plus shipping so 500 USD. Now they are going to replace springs and seal beside the new crown tube and such but still. So if your older model 500M even just starts to have even a fraction less rotations on the crown screw down get it back to AD and tell them to demand TAG fixes free of charge.
To me this should be treated as a recall. I think the threads are either too fine or not deep enough. Once it starts its going to fail completely in time. Other than that, I absolutely love mine. And tough as nails. Must have shot hundreds of rounds of skeet and trap with it. Wrenching with it. And most recently it accompanied me on a near fatal motorcycle accident. Broke my back in several places and most my ribs but the TAG kept right on ticking and not a mark on it! BTW I am just as good as new, I bounce back too just not as tough as a TAG ;)

This is my Tag Heuer. It's been sent off today to Tag to rectify an issue I have with the watch's power reserve which once fully wound, is only 12hrs or so. Can anyone tell me how long it's likely to be until I get the watch back please? Incidentally I'm in the UK. Many thanks in advance.
