    Help with Tag Grand Carrera Calibre 8RS second mine a replica??

    Hi everyone, I've cut and pasted my original question below into this forum on the advice of some members (originally posted in the wrong forum) - would really appreciate some help from anyone who knows their scheisse when it comes to TAGs
    Many thanks


    I would really appreciate some help from the learned readers of this forum! I have just bought a pre-owned WAV5113 online, looked great when I received it, but I can't set the second time no matter what I do. I read a separate thread on this forum that said you need to pull the crown out all the way and that you turn clockwise for the main time and anti-clockwise for the second time disc, but mine doesn't seem to work this way. The disc simply follows the main time whichever way I turn the crown, I can't seem to make one turn independently of the other.

    Does this suggest the watch is a replica, or does the 8 RS have some secret I'm not aware of.
    I paid with Paypal so hopefully can raise a dispute if its a replica.

    Many thanks

    PS I've posted a few pics if it helps

    From the photographs it would appear to be genuine.

    If this watch works the same way as my Carrera Twin-Time, you need to pull the crown out to the first stop, not all the way out. At the first stop, turning it one way will change the date and turning it the other will alter the second time zone. Give that method a try.

    Pulling the crown out to the second stop (all the way) is how you adjust the main time and the second time zone will just follow it round at whatever offset it is set to.

    Your watch looks real to me.
