    I'm here to see watches not cars and beaches.

    Very nice.....

    Great to see the GO strapped on, James. Hope you're enjoying it.

    That is an amazingly beautiful watch [​IMG]

    What is the size of this watch?

    Thanks Guys. The size is 38.+mm, and I have to say it fits my small wrist very well, better than my IWC 3714.

    Been into Rolex for a while (GMT IIC, Daytona, GV) and needed something light and unique. This one is feather light and unique. Zenith El Primero movement runs SMOOTH!

    What do you guys think?

    Here is my first Tag, Link quartz chrono for a sturdy and accurate daily beater.


    You own or intend to buy more than one Tag? [​IMG]

    Hi Gazman, This is my first ever and I don't own any others. I don't intend on buying more Tag's, this purchase was somewhat linked to my earlier teenage years fascination with Link bracelets but not having the means to buy one legitimately back in those days. Admittedly, none of the current Tag's strike me as outstanding watches in way of design. There are some older Link models I like but they are no longer made and I did want a brand new one. Having browsed this thread made me realise there are so many other decent looking watches out there. It also re-kindled memories of some watches I owned in the past (my first was a Poljot wind up, and I did own a vintage Schaffhausen win up as well at one stage). For me a watch is currently about function mostly and while I appreciate the workings of a mechanical (be it wind up or automatic) I did not think I could get the same amount of accuracy within 2-3k AUD (new) price level. Yes I do care if it fluctuates 20-40 seconds per day [​IMG] Perhaps a rushed purchase as well, as I just wanted to get it and get it over with, now I realise I may have started something detrimental to my savings account [​IMG]

    Rivkin was famous for his beads, that's all.

    Wow, that Omega is fantastic. Even better that it's been passed down through the family.
