    Hi all,

    Has anyone else had this issue?

    I bought the watch late 2016,
    After a few weeks I noticed that the watch main face had steamed up on general use.

    The watch was sent back and repaired by Tag under warranty and the warranty was extended.

    Since the repair I've been hesitant about wearing the watch which I shouldn't do. I have 3 other Tag watches that have been fine.

    Today I've worn the watch for the day and now had the same issue.

    I'm beyond disappointed with the watch and brand this isn't painting a good picture

    Condensation points to a sealing issue, either in the gaskets for the crown and pushers, or for the crystal. Definitely take it back to TAG and explain the problem. Of course, before being returned to you it should have been pressure tested, but it's possible something just went wrong afterwards.

    While you wait to bring it back in, place the watch on a soft cloth crystal down with the crown pulled out - you'll keep the moisture from condensing and getting into the movement.

    I recently had a similar problem with my carrera(not 1887), it went to the AD who removed the back and mechanism a to entirely dry it out, rebuilt it and once pressure tested (passed)and back in my hands, or, on my wrist, no further problems.
