    Question Replacement TAG Heuer bezel spring, locating pin, and bezel holder?

    I have a TAG SEL watch that I got from my uncle and I took off the bezel because it was loose and had no clicking noise (I know I shouldn't do that but oh well...) to find that all I have is the actual bezel with the numbers on it.
    There is nothing else underneath the bezel.

    Sorry for bad focus on the bottom...

    This was all that was on the watch. Would it be hard/expensive to fix? Could I just get some kind of generic parts off of ebay to fit it?
    Should I just take it to a jewelers.

    Take it to a jeweler who has a watchmaker or to a watchmaker directly. I suspect the parts are pretty generic but a real watchmaker will tell you if only TAG has the parts.

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

    It looks as though the bezel spring is missing. You might struggle getting a generic part for replacement. It's very simple to install once you have the part. There should be a locating hole on the case where the spring inserts and you simple press and twist the bezel on with the palm of your hand. A watchmaker will be able to order the part from TAG Heuer or simply send it to TAG Heuer themselves. The part is very cheap so if you can find it yourself I would.

    TAG will want to overhaul and is not likely to do a one-point repair. Nor will they sell parts outside their sales/repair network. A watchmaker can make a spring if they have to...

    That does not look like the back of an S/el bezel. To be sure please provide the following.

    The model number from the caseback of the watch
    Pictures of the watch face and bezel front.

    Happy to help once you post.

    Cheers,

    David

    Yeah, it turns out it was a fake...Oh well.
    I bet it would still be easy to repair it, huh?

    Easy? Maybe. Worth it? Probably not.

    You could probably buy a real Seiko for the cost of repair. If money is the problem, I'd do that.
