Hello all...I am new to the forum. My years of hunting, buying, selling, watches has become an addiction. Recently I sold my entire collection of mistakes to start over. It was only 12 watches...nothing worth even mentioning. Basically none of the watches were really grabbing me anymore.
So my first watch out of the hole was a Tag Heuer Carrera Twin Time Calibre 7. I was able to purchase the watch for a good deal brand new at $1950.00 so I dont think I am under water.....yet. :)
One of the reasons for joining the forum was because I need help making better decisions to eliminate all of the buying and selling of mistakes. Since I have purchased my Tag I have unfortunately come across some of the negativity about the brand on the internet. Now I know the angle of....its all about if I like it.....etc. But this is the most money I have ever spent on a watch and it is my dress up piece so i would like to be proud of it vs ashamed of it due to its bad wrap.
So give it to me straight.....I can take it. Is this a quality time piece or a piece of junk? Can anyone explain to me why Tag is getting shunned in the community??? I am a novice so I dont really understand the movements and their intricacies. Yes I checked out the Carrera Club with many proud owners....and yes that gave me some confidence. But I want to hear from the folks that arent in the Carrera club....to find out maybe why they arent in the club :) ....
Its not a big deal...if it turns out that my watch is not a respected time piece I will just sell it and with the help of this forum I will get me a respected time piece!
Thanks in advance.
