    @DocDave Bought it new in mid-2017 from an AD, so I'm assuming it's a 2017 production?

    New pick-up this week. TAG Heuer Aquaracer quartz.





    As spring has been peeking out from under all the snow I've been looking for a "fun" summer watch that is also appropriate to get beat up during fun summer activities. I knew I wanted something quartz to wear on rubber, and was somewhat influenced by the look of the PP Aquanaut/AP Royal Oak in terms of being drawn toward dark dials/brushed steel bezels/integrated rubber straps. I looked a lot at the Seamaster 2264.50/2262.50 (the quartz version of the sword-hands Seamaster Vicious posted above) but thought it was absurd to pay $2,000+ for a used quartz watch.

    I know TAG quartz is pretty much the textbook definition of overpriced name-brand yuppie garbage but I am actually really pleased with the watch. I like that it is modern and chunky and geometric and almost a bit toy-like.

    Bought it for summer wear with shorts and t-shirt but I'm also enjoying the no-fucks-given aspect of wearing it with a suit.

    What watch I wore today

    It was rattly due to hollow end links but that didn't bother me. It was actually a very comfortable bracelet due to the links being so small.

    Thanks. This is me today.



    That's most of what I own at the moment. I have 2 DJ's I need to sell (a new blue dial and an older 1601 silver dial) since they don't get worn much. And I'm waiting for a GO Panoreserve to arrive next week and a Seiko I have on preorder.

    Nice! I've always liked those TAGs. I actually have the 2264.50 and got quartz for the reason that it's low maintenance and I won't mind banging it around as much. I got mine for around $1000-$1200 (can't remember the exact price now).

    Yeah, I don't know why they are so expensive now except I guess that they must be getting harder to find in decent condition. When I was looking at them first a few years ago they were mostly going for $1300. Now they are up to $2500 at places like Crown and Caliber. I passed on the 36mm model for $1700 recently because the photos weren't very good and it was hard to tell the condition.

    I was speaking to Exelonman recently because I was thinking of picking up a 2221 and he was saying the prices of all of those old wave dials have gone up in the last 6 months. I got lucky that I snagged mine at the very beginning of the year for a good price. It has a small dent on the case/bezel near 9 oclock that the guy didn't tell me about but that makes it easier for me to use it as a weekend watch and not worry about it.

    Newly arrived Nodus Retrospect II. Will post some additional photos when lighting is better. Very impressed so far!

    Ooooh that's some nice lume! That's the one with inward sloping bezel, correct?
