    It's on the TAG Heuer website... there's a link under the picture. Otherwise TAG Heuer boutiques, I don't think you will get this 'cheap' very easily.

    Hi Aquagraph, appreciate your reply. The official price in my country is EUR 3400 which for the watch with citizen solar calibre for 350 EUR does not make sense. I would be okay to pay the price around EUR 1600 - have to admit the watch is stunning! Will have to wait for some time as I know that second hand TH go for good buck. No rush. Thanks for your time anyway.

    As far as I know it's not being made in huge numbers like regular Auaracers, so you might have to wait a very long time...

    Very interesting, did not know that. Going to wait 6 months or so and then will see. I do not know what is your view on that matter but if it is solar quartz movement that premium is not justifiable. Other than that the watch itself is really appealing!

    Looks like an Aquaracer, tick. Works like an Aquaracer, tick. Solar-powered, cool but not new or unique. Price, ooops $4,450. For $500 less, I'd rather have a G-Shock MR-G, like this:

    Not only is this hand made in Japan, it is solar powered, MB6 and Bluetooth enabled for accurate timekeeping. Oh yes, and it has 200m of water resistance.

    What is appealing to me the most is the classic sleek design equipped with solar movement.

    Unfortunately you are paying for the name.... same as all the other TAGs and all other Swiss watches in general.

    That is true but TH do not have great re-sale value and if the watch is mechanic, you can debate the price related to horology but this is pure 70's tech (obsolete one). Anyway, I really like that watch and I going to find the way how to procure that.

    you may get lucky and find one in a TH outlet in a couple of years time. Otherwise have a shop around, it might be cheaper to fly to a place where they’re cheaper than your location to buy one (I’m currently toying with a weekend in Germany to go buy a watch).

    Hey, cool pic! Can you please share your over all thoughts about the watch and let us know how accurate is the movement and how bright and how long lasting is the lume. Really falling for this watch, very simple but got it all! Cheers.

    I love the watch. The matte titanium case is my favorite of all the materials TAG offers, and I'm just waiting for the right model. (I can't bring myself to wear quartz watches, so unfortunately this one isn't it)

    The movement is quartz, so it is extremely accurate. I can't say about the lume, but it's probably similar to my 43mm Aquaracers so I'd expect it to be very bright and long-lasting as a dive watch should be.

    I have slate titanium watch myself, yeah, it is a great material. So do I get it right that you bought the watch but do not want to keep it?
