    Re: The Formula 1 Club

    Do a google image search for "replica TAG Heuer Formula One" and you'll get an idea of what the fake ones look like. In general, the logo, and lettering on the dial looks "off." The logo on the clasp is usually smaller and the clasp is of a different design. And the casebacks don't look the same as the authentic ones.

    I have two authentic F1s, and all of the above aspects I listed above are identical to the one you referenced with your pics.

    Joining the club with my Formula 1 Chronograph. She was my first TAG and I've had her for over 4 years. I'm thinking of changing the look with a black rubber Formula 1 strap. She just got a new Carrera Day Date Calibre 16 for a sister, but I'll never forget about her.

    Re: The Formula 1 Club

    Ante Nin,

    I had a conversation with a watch dealer last month about this issue. He said that no matter how water resistant a watch is, you should never shower with it. The steam from the shower is what is causing the water vapor to collect inside the watch. The case and the seals keep out liquid water, even at great depths, but the water vapor in steam is able to slip through the crown threads and the seals in the watch. You can wash your hands, jump in the pool or go for a dive in the ocean with your watch, but a shower, jacuzzi or steam room is a no-no. Try leaving the watch on the bathroom counter instead of taking it into the shower, or just leave it outside the bathroom altogether.

    Cheers.

    Re: The Formula 1 Club

    When I first bought my 2000 classic automatic 13 years ago, during the first 2 years, I did not take the watch off my wrist at all. I did use to practice swimming, in saunas, showers, day and night, beaches, anything. Never had an issue. There is obviously something wrong with this watch and the company or store should take care of it.

    Specially considering it is not a generic product. It is a TAG HEUER. A name the sells dreams, desires and excellence. This is my opinion. Again, no money is better spent by a company, than on customer care. Infinitely better than spending on ambassadors.
