    Have been trolling eBay in search of a good deal on the long-lost favorite watch of my youth: the Tag F1 with an orange face and an orange strap. I'm seeing a handful of possible listings that are all "orange," but look like quite different shades (see below). Is this just my monitor, or did Tag make more than one shade of orange F1?
    Thank you!

    Colours do fade depending on how much exposure to the sun they've had. Particularly noticeable with bright colours like this.

    Depending on the seller, and the camera used to take the listing photos.

    A different exposure or contrast setup on an image editing software will you a plethora of hues.

    Agree. It will be the same colour Orange...or at least would have been when they were new. Most of the difference is the photo above looks to be the light

    Thanks to you all for your speedy and helpful responses. I guess if I want the deep orange of my youth, I should buy a new band and a separate watch. The past is a foreign country.
    Thank you!
