    I'm in love - TAG Heuer Carrera 1887 SpaceX



    I find this classy as fuck,

    Any reccomendations on a similar watch for about 5-10% of the cost? Thanks

    I absolutely love it as well. I love it so much that I would not want something that looks like it, but would rather save my pennies to one day buy the real thing. The SpaceX or the JH 80th will be my next watch. Both have surpassed the Monaco on my wish list.


    A suggestion: Keep an eye on the watchuseek.com classified for used models. This is how I bought my first Formula 1.

      Nice watch. I am over my expensive watch phase so I won't be buying it, especially not at $5800. Tags usually depreciate pretty quickly on the secondary market so you might be able to pick it up around $3000 a year from now.

        I'm reminded of the Kenneth Cole chronograph that Joe has posted before.





        Not a perfect match, but a similar design aesthetic.

            More and more:


            Junkers (pretty pricey but still less than 10% of the $5000+ TAG):





            A couple more Junkers:

              The Longines Master collection has some watches that are somewhat similar to the Tag. Although with their last price increase, they'll run you about $2800 so still not much of a bargain.

                Thanks for the suggestions, I just cant stop looking at it.


                Maybe I'll try pairing one of these w/ a different band until I've saved enough in a few years...

                  The strap on that Tag is fantastic too.

                    @tdig I think it's actually the strap that makes the watch! You could take one of the Junkers posted above, put that strap on it, and make it look insanely better.
