    This is what a Calibre 1 should look like.

    I understand. I found it at a decent price. The seller bought it from the original owner who purchased it from Jared Galleria. It will come with the original Ebay authentication and the seller is sending to to Ebay authentication as well. So will have 2 suthentications as long as it all goes well. Will also come with receipt, warranty card stamped with Jared on it. We shall see

    Do you trust eBay to authenticate a watch like that?

    No. Regardless i would still bring it in to get checked and yes even fakes can fool an AD.

    FYI, ebay authentication for tag heuer is complete and utter trash. These people know less about these fakes than what novices on our forums know. Only way to authenticate is to send to tag heuer.

    And it's more than " even fakes can fool an AD". AD's are not capable of authenticating these watches, which is why they aren't supposed to. I'd bet money that majority of these would pass the AD's smell test. AD's are supposed to send these in to tag. Which, is a free service, including shipping.

    For sure an AD can't do a metallurgy test for a start...

    I am aware. Living in New York there are many shops but I am fortunate that I know a guy that owns a shop not far from me that used to work for TAG in Europe. Very smart guy. It is crazy the things they know and the detail. He had worked on my other watches

    among other things. Look at all the ways WE have figured out how to tell what is fake. The AD needs to have the same experience that we do, or have the exact same model around to check. I'm not even that good with formula ones. Some of the people on here are more capable than I am with those.

    Interested in this from an independent dealer for £1750. There’s a few scuffs on the edge of the sapphire. Thoughts on quality and price?

    Good watches. ETA automatic movement - you may want to check accuracy and service history and factor that into any price you offer. Also be aware that crystals are reputedly expensive to replace on these models, so again factor that in.

    Thanks for your thoughts! I believe it was serviced earlier this year so will put some thought into it.

    @Beau05 I had one of its siblings for a couple of years - CV2113. I enjoyed owning it for a couple of years with no issues. It wears nice and looks great on a multitude of straps. The factory bracelet is also very comfortable. I only sold it to fund another watch and I also had another Carrera. I think these are a great value and have vintage mojo with a slightly modern size a “hidden gem”.

    Hey guys- bought this watch and it’s on the way to me now. Searched serial number on tag warranty site and nothing came up, searched on trust site and it didn’t come up though I read that only USA sold tags come up on there. This tag is coming to me from Canada.

    can anyone verify authenticity based on what you see?

    Hello there, I was recently gifted this "Tag Heuer Calibre 16" and I was wondering if this is authentic or not. I'm thinking it's a fake, but I wanted to see what others think. Either way I didn't pay for it so it's not a loss in any way.

    Not authentic. The subdials are all wrong.

    And that would of been one hell of a gift. If you search the model #CV2014-2 you will see what I mean

    I figured it was, but oh well I didn't pay for it so not a financial loss for me.
