Hi all, I just bought my first TAG Heuer watch yesterday -- an S/el, model WG111A, which I have found in the 1997 catalog. It is the plain blue-faced quartz watch with date, and an all-stainless appearance. Band is BA0423-GO, which seems to be a uniformly semi-matte finish stainless. I can't see any distinction among the links with regard to finish -- possibly the finish has simply been worn off with age, but truly nothing looks exactly polished, and nothing looks exactly brushed. The case looks somewhat more matte than the band, but the band certainly isn't shiny-polished. My watch is well-used, but not abused. All of the links are in good shape, don't seem too loose. It fits my wrist well -- a bit on the tight side, but not to a restrictive degree. The only notable flaws (aside from normal wear and tear) are visible deterioration/darkening of the luminous parts of the dial. The hands, fortunately, do not show any of this darkening and are in great shape. All in all, I am very happy with how it looks -- very classic and not at all dated like a gold/stainless model would be. I also think that I prefer the blue face to any others, with the possible exception of the white. I purchased this watch at a pawnshop for only $250 with tax. I am very happy about this -- I have wanted a TAG for a long time, but have never been able to justify it (I hadn't worn a watch in many years until I got an Apple Watch about 6 months ago -- which I wear regularly, mostly for fitness tracking reasons). This TAG will mostly just be brought out for occasions where I want to dress up. Really I am glad to have it simply as a relief of the pressure of wanting one for so long. Occasionally I would debate buying one at a store or pawnshop or whatever, but they are pretty expensive for something that I won't really use much. At just $250, this purchase was a no-brainer, and now I finally have one, so the temptation won't be there the next time I find a "steal" at $500 or whatever. So I doubt I will be collecting many more, but I am glad to finally be a member of the club and to own a TAG Heuer. I will probably send it off for a cleaning/overhaul sometime in the next year or so. Interestingly, the watch was made in the late 1990's (20 years ago) which was when I was in high school. I had a Fossil watch at the time (model AM-3111) which had a very similar blue face and a very similar stainless case and band. (Also a very functional LCD at the bottom part of the face, which could be used for alarms, date/day, stopwatch, etc.) Mostly I just wanted to post in order to say "Thank You" to you guys for posting all of the information on these watches. I was seriously surprised to see the low price and thought for sure it must be a fake. Thanks to the information I found on this forum, I was convinced that it was real and to go ahead and buy it. I have attached some photos although I know this is a pretty lame watch compared to most owned in this forum.
