    Hey everyone,

    New to the Tag forums (been posting more over on OF lately). Thought I'd share one of my Tag acquisitions.

    This one I picked up via eBay for a pretty good deal (came with box/papers/original purchase history).

    I was originally looking into the Calibre 5 Day-Date, but when I went into my local AD to try it on, I found it to be a bit too dressy for something I wanted to wear everyday.

    I ended up purchasing this particular one (Ref. WAZ2011.BA0842) without seeing it in person (no dealers near me had one in stock), but the anthracite dial looked stunning in photos, and thought I'd take the chance.

    The clasp and band both had their share of scratches (it was pre-owned), but I recently found out about the red scotch-brite trick and Cape Cod cloths...and I must say, they did wonders!

    The watch itself is subtle enough to wear casually, but I also wore it to a wedding this past weekend and looked great!

    Here's some eye candy - enjoy!

    -Kenneth

    Thank you so much! :)

    Haha possibly a bit sporty! But kind of dressed it down!

    It was purchased new earlier this year in March, so still fairly new! I wound it fully and kept it running for a couple of days, and looks like it gained a little under 10 seconds.
