1st Tag

This watch, Tag Heuer Aquagraph, caught my attention a while back. Waiting for a good deal on one in good condition. Finally found one, came in today.

It is 43mm, comes with the Calibre 60 movement which is an ETA 2892-2 with a Dubois Depraz 2073 chronograph module. Most interesting thing about the movement is that both the minute and second chronograph hands are on the main dial. Chrono hours at 6 o'clock, running seconds at 3, and 24HR at 9 o'clock. 500m water resistance. Signed screw down crown. Has a yellow gasket that can be seen below to let the user know the crown isn't screwed in.





Has an automatic helium valve and rubber pushers. The pushers are actually designed to be operated underwater. Unidirectional bezel that locks in place. To rotate, you have to push down on to opposite points of the bezel and rotage.



The watch still has the sticker on the back, I'll keep it there until I decide whether I'll keep it or not. Signed dual deployant clasp, diver's extension, and the bracelet tapers from 22mm to 20mm I believe. The one annoyance is user made, the previous owner had a smaller wrist than I and didn't have the extra links, so without the diver's extension, the watch doesn't fit. I'm ok with it, taken into consideration when I purchased, I'll have to buy at least one full link. No micro adjustments, but does have 2 half links. The center portion of the link is also slightly raised.





Great lume. Accuracy is great so far, but I've only been wearing it 7 hours.



Now to get me some links. So far so good. Going to give it a couple of weeks before deciding if I'll keep it. Thanks for looking.

Will do, especially once I get the extra links. So far so good though it is +5s/day so far and gets better looking the more time it spends on my wrist.
