Bezel: Fine-brushed steel with black aluminium ring, Uni-directional measures time limits and is an essential safety feature. Any accidental movement of the bezel can only reduce the indicated remaining time
Markers: Large Luminescent markers are easily legible in the dark or underwater
Movement: Automatic - TAG Heuer Calibre 5 Swiss Made
Water resistance: 30 ATM/300 meters/1000 feet
Case measurements: 41 mm wide x 13 mm thick
Band measurements: 19 mm wide x 8 inches
All measurements are approximate and may vary slightly from the listed dimensions.
Men's watch bands can be sized to fit 7.5-inch to 8.5-inch wrists.
A screw-down crown (knob) creates a water-resistant seal. To unscrew the crown, turn counter-clockwise and pull/push into position to set time, date, and other functions. To close the crown, press it against the case and turn clockwise.
This watch is powered by automatic movement which means the winding of the spring occurs automatically when the wearer moves his/her arm. However, it is recommended that you manually wind the watch at least once every two weeks. It is also important to adjust the time once a month as automatic movement can gain or lose a few minutes per month.
Please note: This watch is not returnable if the security tag is removed.
This is an absolutely marvelous diver watch. Prior to purchasing, I had considered the Omega Seamaster and Tissot PRS-516, both of which were excellent (though the Tissot wasn't really in the same league). The TAG Heuer simply has the most appealing lines to my eye.
The dial is a flat piano black, with a subtle circle just inside the hour markers. The black bezel has large, easy to read numbers and markers, is unidirectional, and moves into place with a reassuring "click" that exudes quality. The screw-down crown is easy to use and pops into setting positions solidly. The bracelet and clasp are stainless steel, with a foldover clasp lock featuring the TAG Heuer logo. The crystal is an anti-reflective, scratch resistant sapphire, which is excellent.
I believe the movement, which TAG calls the "Calibre 5", is based on the ETA 2824-2 with some TAG modifications. In my ownership of the watch thus far, the movement has been very reliable, accurate to within a few seconds per week, and with plenty of power reserve to run overnight without the need for a winding box. Interestingly, the 2824-2 is the same movement in my Tissot Le Locle Automatic, and the TAG is much more accurate, leading me to think that the TAG modifications are more than just cosmetic, though this is somewhat speculative on my part.
Overall, this is by far the best watch I have owned. It outperforms every automatic I have, and has a timeless (no pun intended) diver style that will look current for decades.

This is a very nice automatic Tag at a reasonable price. The watch is versatile; it is very comfortable as a daily-wear and looks elegant with formal-wear. The dial is legible and the hour markers have nice illumination at nighttime. The automatic movement has been pretty precise thus far; I have worn the watch since its arrival without winding it again ... and I have not noticed any loss in time.
I would recommend this watch, and Tag Heuer.
Overstock.com was commendable in their service, too. I received a call from the staff upon purchase to confirm that I was the buyer. Once that was confirmed, the watch shipped out with UPS (signature confirmation) and arrived on time.

My husband is very picky and hard to shop for. He loves this watch. It is nice enough for dressy occasions and casual enough to wear daily. It looks great on him! Thanks, overstock for the great price on this great watch. I highly recommend this purchase....I shopped for months to find the perfect watch.
I have owned a Tag or the last 12 years. The original one is still running great after changing batteries every two-three years. I wanted a updated face and size so naturally I went to a new Tag. This watch looks and feels great. It has the look of watches costing $1000.00's more. My only complaint is that if you do not wear it for a few days you have to reset it as it will go dead due to self winding. I still would by this agin.
I don't believe they are. I don't know who overstockcustomercare1 is but Tag Heuer doesn't recognize them as an authorized dealer. I could be wrong, but I'm fairly sure. I called Tag and asked them so maybe the person I talked to had wrong information. There are actually very few authorized dealers and she said Macy's and Jared's.John on Dec 14, 2014
However, I purchased the watch. The price is excellent and I don't think being an authorized dealer is all that important unless you happen to have problems. Which I think is unlikely with a great watch company like Tag.John on Dec 14, 2014
