    front of watch marked: Tag Heuer Link Automatic Tiger Woods & autographed Yoshikatsu Kawaguchi in red

    back of watch marked: Swiss Made, Tag Heuer, CN111B.BA0337, Limited Edition 1996/2000, Yoshikatsu Kawaguchi, June 2002, and autographed by Yoshikatsu Kawaguchi in the middle

    Clasp is marked: Stainless Steel

    Crown is marked: Heuer

    Dials on the watch glow in the dark

    How can you tell if it's authentic? It's a beautiful watch. Nothing on it looks fake. A friend is wanting to sell it.

    A serial number that starts with "C" is a chronometer and a "W" is a watch

    That watch has a serial of
    CN111B, and it is not a chronometer, so I would call it a fake

    edit: and by
    chronometer i mean chronograph ....

    Surprisingly, the guy in this forum has the same watch, 1996/2000.

    How do you know if it is a chronometer watch? No I don't know alot about watches but I googled it and found Omega chronometer watches made just like this with numbers around it.

    And how do you know, just because someone else has a watch with the same markings, that it would make this watch fake, a fake watch replicated from an authenic, may show the same markings, right?

    I found an authenic Tag Heuer watch online with this same exact band my watch has.

    Not convinced yet. How much do jewelers charge to authenicate a watch?

    I thought the C stood for Chronograph and that is certainly not a chronograph.
    A Chronometer means that the movement is within COSC specs.
    Usually fakes all have the same #s its alot cheaper to make.

    I think it is definitely a fake because of the bracelet. Those links use pins to hold the links, on a real link bracelet there are no pushpins except on the link closest to the clasp.

    Couldn't the links have just been adjusted for size? You can add/remove links if needed, right? These pins are not in all of the links, just at the front of the watch, and several at the back where the clasp is.

    Here's a pic of an authentic Tag watch I found online, the papers are with it, and if you look closely toward the right, you will see that the pins are in three of the links on that side by the clasp, just like mine. Sorry but your wrong about that. Name:  aaaa.jpg

    one thing I read online to prove authencity is to see if the watch glows in the dark after holding it up to a light for a minute or two, and if it holds it's glow. this watch holds it's glow.

    another thing I found is that if it is authentic, it will state Swiss made.

    I also found where the fakes will state japanese made or such on them, this watch doesn't have no such marking.

    the guy that had this watch originally said he paid $1600 for it. and they are swaring it is authentic. uh guess we just bought it for $250 (dumbo didn't let me find out first if it's authentic for sure). oh well.
