    Anyone care to guess how much (in £) it would cost to buy one of everything on the TAG Heuer website?

    Hmm. There are about 270 watches by my count, but some are cheap and then there are a handful of tourbillons in the mix. I'm going to guess it's less than £1m. Let's say £750k?

    One thing is for certain. Buy the time someone documents and calculates the answer the prices or catalogue will have changed!

    Besides I’m quite sure that transaction would be much leas than the website might suggest. I bet any AD would bite your hand off. So take at least 30% off the ‘total’ :D

    I take it for granted that Rob has done the math and will present us with the answer soon

    £783,510, so Imagwai was pretty close. I reckon you could actually get them all for £400k if you asked...

    Nope... as it happens, I am in the process of creating a July 2020 TAG Heuer price list for my blog. Since TAG don't seem to be issuing proper catalogues anymore and since the website is 'transient', I figure how the hell will we know what was for sale when in the future? All the info from 2015-2020 is pretty much lost, but if I start now I can keep a record going forward. The initial workload was high, but then in six months it will just be a case of checking what's come and what's gone and making sure the prices haven't changed. Personally I refer to the catalogues on Calibre11 a lot (even though I have physical copies of most of them), it seems a shame to think that opportunity won't be there in the future, all the newer catalogues feature about 20% of the actual range.

    Which is a shame but at the same time I guess it makes sense not to make them thick as a phonebook

    Good work. Sounds like TAG Heuer should hire you too!

    It's understandable, for TH the aim is to sell watches, not document the life cycle of their range... and the website is a much better tool for that. Especially these days when there's so many special editions that wouldn't last as long as a physical catalogue. It's funny, going through the current range so meticulously has brought a few things home to me, like for instance there are only 5 men's Link watches in the current range!

    So I guess the next question would be, would you have one of everything for £783k, or would you have one high end Richard Mille?

    But you could sell all the ones you didn't want and buy something you did...

    That would be an inefficient use of funds.
