    TAG is constantly coming out with new Carrera versions. For some reason the finish on this does not look right and the subdial positions also do not. If you want absolute peace of mind, you should consider an Authorized Dealer, or at least a very reputable reseller. It will pay, in my opinion.

    Thank You for Your reply. I probably gonna request more pictures of this particular one and send it straight away to Tag Heuer to get their opinion. Price of this one is like 600$ less then usual price of Carrera so it is not kind of 'once-in-a-lifetime-offer".

    But still, thank You again for your help!

    First of all, I'm pretty new here at this forum and no expert, but there are a lot of strange things here...
    - The plastic wrap around the bracelet. Never seen that on an authentic Tag Heuer before. I guess that could just be the seller trying to prevent scratches...
    - The sub-dials, as previously mentioned, are positioned very close to the center. I'm assuming this should be a 41mm watch, and if so, the sub-dials should be positioned further out from the center. They just look cramped and awkward on this watch.
    - Also, what's up with the numbering on the sub-dials? You'd think this would be a regular cal. 16 watch, with small seconds at 9, minutes at 12 and hours at 6. Instead, the small seconds dial goes up to a value of 7...? The minute dial goes to 12 and the hour dial goes to 24? Shouldn't a normal cal. 16 Carrera have 30 minute and 12 hours sub-dials, respectively?
    - Finally, the date doesn't seem to really fill out the date window, which I believe it should do. I.e., the numbers are a bit on the small side.

    Just my 2 cents, and my first attempt at dissecting pictures of a Tag :)

    Looks real but movement pics would help confirm...
    "Forever is composed of nows." - Emily Dickinson

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    New Purchase, have some questions

    Hey all,

    I bought this the other night online without box and papers. I haven't had a chance to take it into my jeweler and have him take a look at it yet. I was curious if anyone has access to a list of serial numbers for the CT2111 model? I'm just trying to verify its authenticity. I've had other TAG's and it passes all my visual tests without cracking the back open, but this is the first watch I've ever bought used, let alone without papers so I'm trying to set my mind at ease. Any help that any of you might be able to offer would be greatly appreciated.
