    Hello abderrahim,
    Oh, I absolutely do have an idea or two, but I would advice you to visit the nearest TAG Heuer dealer, or if you are not able to do so go to a watchmaker that you trust your work to. They can remove the dust spickles for you. Personally myself I hate it too, but it does make your watch unique, doesn't it :)

    I once was so bored of playing Tetris in an airplane that I tapped the glass of my watch that I was wearing (I think it was a 1500) for an hour with my fingernail until I moved a spickle into the corner of the glass. Mission accomplished :D

    ^ Interesting to know you travel with scotch tape :)

    ^ Haha, always handy to have with you, but I mean tapping with your nail on the crystal, not taping. Like tap..tap..tap...on the crystal glass under a hook. Although the tapping might not be the wisest thing to do with a watch that has an outside AR coated crystal though.

    Could be many things, but certainly worth getting fixed. The issue isn't the dust itself, but more how it got in there- could be a sign that the seals need replacing
