    Ok I trust your opinion it seems like you really know what your doing and if 8 isn't common its got to be a 3. That would make the most sense....the side of it probably rubbed out. Thank you so much!

    Do a Google Image search for 'tag heuer wj131a' and you'll see plenty of pictures that look like your watch.

    Yes it brings up my watch (It brings up other watches as well)

    But I did find another sold watch on ebay and it is identical to mine and has the same model #.

    Spent the last few days scouring the TAG catalogues and I'm astonished how many watches TAG have made, but also how repetitive the numbering is. Also how often they use combinations of the same numbers for straps, which must lead to ordering errors (I have first hand experience of this).
    Also the numbering in the early nineties catalogues doesn't seem to follow the same pattern as the later codes, I see earlier in the thread there was an explanation of the 'size' code, do we know what the other codes mean? For example:

    165.306/416/M/416/C

    What that set of codes mean is as follows.
    - The watch head is reference 165.306 (165 tells us it's an automatic 2000 Chronopgraph; 3 is the dial colour and 06 is the size)
    - It comes with either a bracelet- code 416/ M
    - ...or a leather (C= "Cuir"- French for leather) strap code 416/ C

    That's why the numbers are re-used...because TAG Heuer offered the same bracelet/ strap on several different watches.

    Hi - new to the forum and TAG ownership although have long admired them. Recently I purchased a lovely Monaco calibre 6 Ww2111 that needs a little TLC, nothing major just some polishing and the strap is a little tatty. I want to replace it, and bring the watch back to its original specs and former glory. Usually I see the ww2111 Touted with the fc6204 suffix on the net, although this does not appear anywhere on my watch. From the info in this thread, and others, this would be a Monaco calibre 6 leather /alligator strap.( as appears to be fitted) . But unsure as to the exact meaning of "204 ", although I know the watch was availble with blue or black, alligator or leather straps. Where it gets a bit strange is that on my watches clasp it has FC5014 stamped, along with F N9, according to the table above this is a calibre 5 alligator strap. Does this mean that the strap and clasp have incorrectly been replaced at some time? Does this affect the resale value?
    The table above does not seem to have many calibre 6 straps. . Was the same buckle used between models?
    Any help greatly appreciated, as I've about exhausted my ability to uncover further information. _20161214_184657.JPG _20161214_184735.JPG

    6204 doesn't really mean anything. It is the unique code for the leather strap fitted to your watch. You will never see this code on the back of the watch. F = folding clasp and C = Leather/Alligator/Croc.

    On the clasp FC5014 means it is a TAG Heuer branded, stainless steel clasp that fits a 2mm thick strap.

    HTH.

    I think the new 36mm quartz Carrera, albeit a "men's" watch, looks great on a woman, who in many cases, enjoy wearing larger men's sport watches these days.

    On the subject of model codes, can anyone help me with a variant of the S/EL series? I've seen a watch with the code S99.006 which is a two tone gold/brushed SS finish, with a grey face. I'm guessing the S99 is a genuine code since a Google search brings up the calibre11 S/EL "Ultimate Guide" page. But where did the S come from? And what about the other numbers?

    It's a genuine code...but for a different model- below is S99.006

    [​IMG]

    The most helpful place to look is the 1992/ 3 Catalogue which shows the old reference numbers (S99.006) and the new (WG1112- same watch). Here is the S/el page

    Thanks Ed. I apologise - there are two watches together and I mixed them up. The S99 seems to check out, as does the WG1120 which is the other.

    I have a tag with a model WL1118 and a serial of KA0300. I am trying to identify in order to replace the band as it has a broken clasp

    I mean the similarities, like WAH2112 WAH1112 etc... there is a well known mistake when it comes to WAH1110 which is two completely different Formula 1s though...

    Ugh. You mean the ones with the stupid BA0850 bracelet, but also the BA0850-0 and the BA0850-1 bracelet, yet have the exactly same model number, despite the ba0850 bracelet being smaller????? That is the bane of my watch parts life. But that's the only issue I've run into so far. I'm surprised I forgot about that, before asking you....

    Hi all,

    I'm considering buying a 2000 series quartz and the number on the back is WK1120. Does anyone know when it might have been made and what caliber movement it has? It also has WG6959 below the model number. Please see pics.

    Thanks,
    henrylr

    Made 1996-99. Don't know about the movement.

    BTW....I've bought from this seller and do recommend him.
