I'm guessing that you've already done a quick Google search but http://www.watchuseek.com might be a good source to find out who the 'reputable' dealers are versus the shady ones. You obviously need to be a member to post a question but not to just search the forum.

most major Swiss watch companies do not want their products sold via internet, so I would be very careful when looking into it. Go to watch forums, but the best places to buy from are those with an actual brick-and-mortar building that you can return the watch to if something is wrong. If you can, the best place is just to purchase them in person from a jewelry store.

I know the online sites of various department stores (Bloomingdale's, Nordstrom, etc) sell Tag watches. You can purchase from there and then inquire in-store as lenahan suggested if there are any problems.

John, may I ask why you would want such a watch?

First, don't buy a "nice" watch online. It's considered a gray market and you won't get a real warranty.

Second, Tag is barely a "nice" watch. It's considered a mall watch. I'd recommend saving up for something a little more refined.

I like tags. I put it on par with Omega...but this is my opinion of course.

Authenticwatches.com seems to have a good selection and decent prices.
Also check timezone.com's sales forum periodically. There are always great deals there on all watches.

jomashop and authentic watches are both good sources...

But I will re-iterate the above: why a Tag? There a very few worth owning.

I have a tag that I like. Price was reasonable and I view it as a good intro to nicer watches. Yes it's no Patek but it's way above the normal mall watches most people wear.

What's wrong with a Tag? It seems to fulfill the basic requirements of a nice watch. Sure, it's no patek, rolex, or bretiling, but it's a well built watch that will last you for years. I would say it's the Allen Edmonds of watches. People don't compare AE to EG, just like people don't compare EG to bespoke John Lobb.

Spending 5 figures plus on a watch isn't viable for me...

As a recent entry into the 'word of watches', I can attest to the fact that it really is a maze of advice and choice. My 2c would be, unless you are wedded to a Tag Monaco, have a look at some of the forums ( http://www.watchuseek.com, http://www.pmwf.com, http://www.timezone.com) and get an idea of what your max price would be and what you want in a watch (Quartz/Auto, Dive/Dress, etc, etc). For me, I have always wanted an Omega and recently picked up a Seamaster 2254 used for a good price. Just remember that if you don't mind a previously worn watch it greatly increases your potential budget. There's nothing wrong with a Tag (I'm saving for an Aquaracer for my fiancÃ

e) but there are many brands out there and some may give you more bang for the buck. Enjoy the hunt - it's a bit of a rabbit hole once you get hooked.

As I write this, I am wearing a quartz Tag that I purchased pre-watchuseek. This is now my watch for working on my car etc. Buy a real watch with real mechanical movements and not an overpriced Tag quartz.

I purchased a solid gold 1950s Le Coultre in mint condition, serviced it, and purchased a nice gator strap for it for under $1,500. There are many cheaper options, but I wanted a gold watch that wouldn't flake.

Tag and used to make good watches back in the day. Now Tag Heuer makes overpriced mall watches and I would have not spent the $1k or so that I spent on this one if I had known better. Tag is essentually the rubber-soled, square-toed watch of watches.
