    Tag Heuer or Omega

    Been thinking about advancing to the next price level of watches but can't decide which route to go. Do I get a Tag Heuer or an Omega for my first watch over 1k.

    Not trying to start a flame war by any means. I really like the Carerra Day Date Caliber 16 for TAG and the Speedmaster '57 Co-Axial Chronograph for Omega.

    Looking for opinions, experiences for each brand. Do you feel Tag is classier than Omega? Vice versa? Does one make a mechanically superior timepiece to the other?

    Re: Tag Heuer or Omega

    I own both brands and IMHO Omega is the hands down winner. Brand recognition and prestige aside, omega is just a better built watch.

    Take the pieces in your example. The cal 16 is a tired movement it's a base 7750 with little more than a Tag rotor. Some say workhorse I say meh. The 9300 on the other hand is def a level up from Tag's "workhorse" chrono movement.

    Lastly I don't think your comparing apples to apples here, the price difference is nearly 2x when it comes to street pricing. Maybe a Tag cal 1887 vs the Omega 9300 but even that matchup wouldn't be very fair.

    This is an unfair comparison as the omega costs 3x what the tag does. The omega is the better watch for sure. What is your budget?

    Omega is a better watch than Heuer, but IMHO they are both in the same arena

    10000x Omega. Please do yourself a favor and do not get a Tag. A nice JDM Seiko would be a better option than a Tag. If you're getting Omega, never pay retail unless it's impossible to find for a sane price otherwise (such as for a Silver Snoopy Speedmaster)

    I own one tag and used to own another tag model but never caught the Omega fever but they do seem a lot more well built than tags but I find the tag designs nicer. Not sure if that helps.

    I have had 2 tag F1s over the years (but have been sold off), my favorite watch is a 7 year old aquaracer auto with a 2824-2, I have a SMP chrono and an SMP quartz. buy what you like. I love my aquaracer, but none of the newer TAGs do much for me except the Monaco. and I just don't want to pay that much for a TAG when the same $ could get a Tudor. I personally think marathons are more watch for the $ than the TAGs, but it is your hard earned $ and you should buy what speaks to you. That being said, Tag as of late doesn't seem to be fond of honoring their warrantys. I can say that my quartz omega is my best time keeper, and the detail on my omega chronograph is pretty sweet. but I also love the simplity of my old aquaracer. t

    In general, I would opt for Omega over Tag. That said, the Tag 1887 line delivers a lot of bang for the buck.

    Omega IMHO, but, you can ease into it with a Tag for less $$...I am a fan of the Carrera and Monaco and may pick up one or both one day even though I have pricier watches.

    I'd go with whichever one keeps better (meaning most reliable) time. Not familiar with either movement but I've heard good things about the Omega co-axial
