    Please let me know! Thanks :)

    It was worth more than $1K when new. I've never seen that dial but a movement pic would make me feel better saying it is worth about $1 now... and not much more. But I might be wrong. (I, for sure, wouldn't buy it.)

    It's ugly ... must be a fake . Some of these fakes are completely unlike any real TAG. Maybe others will know more.

    Movement looks like a real deal. Don't worry about the plastic stuff, it's a movement holder.

    I saw this posted on Ebay

    TAG Heuer Watch Unisex | eBay

    I am assuming that this is a fake (not the Monaco 24 that the seller claims) - so why would anyone bid anything (currently at more than $500) for this?

    Could anyone tell:
    Always thought that, the absence of reference number or serial number on a back case or bracelet is the sign of fake.
    So, it's not right?

    The movement looks to be genuine, the plastic ring is quite normal in these watches also. The case back however should have the watch model number and serial number printed below the word 'Sapphire'. Reasons for this not being there could be that the watch has at some point been refurbished and thus worn away, the case back has been replaced at some point and has not had the numbers replaced or it has intentionally been removed for some reason.

    Overall all I'm pretty sure it is real.
