Hi everyone,

I've been buying and selling watches lately. Currently mainly Tag Heuer and Omega. I am new to this market and like it a lot. I have 2 questions and I hope you can help me.

1: It strikes me that a lot of full set Tag Heuers are sold by private individuals. I often doubt the authenticity of the watches. The warranty cards are always included. Do you know how this could be? I'm just curious.

2: I am about to buy an automatic Tag Heuer, I can buy it very cheap and doubt its authenticity. Can you take a look and say what you think?

Thanks for your help in advance!

Greetings, Steve

1) Actually, I'm not a TAGHeuer fan, so I'm not aware of what a "full set" watch is.
2) Is the site of the sale reputable (eBay, Sotheby's, the NAWCC)?
3) Does the seller have a good or a shady reputation? Does he have good "feedback"?
4) Is the price of the watch suspiciously low or unreasonably high?

As to the watch in the pictures, I can say that I'm absolutely certain there's a 50% chance it is legit!
I'm sorry, but your photos are useless. If the pics aren't large, well illuminated, and in focus, there's no way even an expert can ascertain legitimacy. And on top of all that, the critical photo is not here: THE MOVEMENT!
Entry-level TAGs have a movement made by ETA, and you will find the serial number machine engraved on the movement. And although the photo is of an Omega movement, it gives you a good idea of what to look for to locate the serial #.:
