Is Tag Heuer an esteemed brand? I’ve read many opinions in several forums endorsing the quality and value of watches from Hamilton, Oris, and Stowa (and others) but have seen a fair number of snarky comments regarding Tag Heuer. They’re popular (maybe that’s part of the problem), have one of the busiest forums on this site, use the same movements as the fore mentioned brands in many models, and I think have a decent reputation for quality. What is Tag Heuer doing to earn a bit more contempt than most other brands that are given serious consideration here?
I ask this because I’m considering purchasing an Aquaracer Automatic to fill my overwhelming need for a blue face/blue bezel dive watch. I know there are other options beginning with the Bond Seamaster, but I love this site and would like to know if others have an opinion on this.
