    Both reputable brands, both use ETA movements, both make a good product. Buy the one you like more. To my eye the Tag is sportier, the Baume dressier. FWIW, I own two B&Ms and a Tag, love them all. I don't know if they are rated to different water resistance, but if that's a factor you might want to see which one is less likely to die if you wear it into the pool.

    This is getting pretty technical, but here is some info on the two movements in the two watches. The Tag is a 7750, the B&M a 7753.

    Best to go see both in person and then pick one. They should be pretty comparable overall, so i’d base the decision on which one looks/fits better.

    You’re new here, but I don’t want to be presumptive and assume you’re new to watch collecting. However, if you are new, I’d hang out on the forum a bit, maybe make a new thread and share your criteria of what you’re looking for in a watch, budget range, etc and look at some alternative options. At roughly $2k, I can think of a few other watches I’d much rather have. But again, my criteria is not yours and I have no idea if this will be your first watch or an addition to your collection etc.

    From the answer above, it seems to me they both have really similar movement and identical functions. Personally, I prefer the Capeland, a bit more classic. The F1 is a bit more sporty, probably you should compare the Capeland to the Carrera.

    I'd go Capeland Chrono , I feel like the F1s have lost the unique and fun style they use to have in the past only to look more like a Carrera lite these days.

    I'd go with the TAG F1. There's just something very 1970s about it.

    B&M for me. Also, I'd try on those watches if you haven't already. The Valjoux 7750 base movement is a beefy one.
