    I'd like to hear an explanation of the sub-dials? I assume:
    - 3 o'clock = date?
    - 6 o'clock = hours?
    - 9 o'clock = 9 minute counter?

    Maybe 3 o'clock is a thermometer measuring in degrees celsius?

    Awful! Looks like the listing is removed now thankfully.

    Nice touch how they've cut down a 'too big' rubber strap to fit!
    Hahahahahaha.

    Hello all timepiece aficionados. My first TAG Heuer has raised more questions than answers. Mine is a LINK Automatic 200 meters. Model WJF2110. The hands and markers are not luminescent. Are they supposed to be?
    I miss that from a different watch I have. TAG Heuer website shows an authorized service center a few miles away, Benbridge Jewelers. They charge $100.00 to authenticate. I'm considering that and a service/cleaning, but thought I spend some time researching first. After quite a bit of reading, I've learned a little, but still wonder about the details, such as when it was manufactured. This was the best picture I could get after many many attempts.

    Correction, the hands are luminescent markers are not, They don't seem to glow very long. Not in California anymore, kind of cloudy in Washington State.

    Thank you very much! I sent TAG an email with the model and serial number to learn approximately when it was manufactured. They responded with 2011 to 2013. I searched quite a bit from 2009 through 2015 catalogues and couldn't find it. So again, thank you. I'm learning more about these beautiful watches, I realize they are not quartz, but would losing a minute per day prompt a trip to a watchmaker to adjust? The watchmaker who removed a link for me said a minute is not bad.

    Looks fake to me. Spacex has a white dial only I believe. Also the limited edition number on the caseback says XXXX! Not right!

    The SpaceX is a tricky one; google image Tag Heuer SpaceX and you ill get more replica image than of the original.

    The one in the previous post is the equivalent of toilet paper whorelogy.

    This is the only version ever made by TH:

    Anything you find with a flat / glossy white or black dial is fake.
    Rose gold / gold painted ones are fake.

    The original strap is medium brown with a vintage effect. All replicas are tannish brown.

    Since we're having fun, I saved this photo from an ebay listing that was removed.

    It was put by a jeweler with a host of high end watches (authentic), and priced at 4,200$.

    I think someone told the trainee to go back home.

    Here's another piece of garbage. Item 182182864182.

    Always be wary with the SpaceX; it has been imitated in various forms, shapes, and colors.
