    Probably too old for the warranty checker. I highly doubt there are any fakes of any Calibre S models as this is an in house TAG Heuer movement so would be pretty hard to do. I have the same watch, great piece!

    What is this water pools on the crystal stuff? I've heard that twice this week but never in the last 8 years... is this some sort of urban legend?

    From the info I've read so far a way to check the sapphire crystal is real is to put a few drops of water on to it and if it pools its real if it just runs its not sapphire crystal

    Oh. Okay... so why do they bother making sapphire testers then?

    I was searching for ways to tell fake from real and it is one of the tests you can do, I don't know enough to know what a sapphire tester is .....I went to my local tag store today they couldn't tell me anything so I'm keeping the watch for a week to have a play as it's my first TAG and I am going to send it a way for a service and 2 links. The guy at the store said they will authenticate it and give me a quote on service and anything else ...

    If it's fake (which it won't be) they won't do anything to it. But I don't think there are fakes, because there's no cheap movement they could use as a substitute.

    Have you figured out how it works yet? It's pretty complicated...

    I posted the instruction manual a while back, and I keep meaning to write a post about how it works but I never got round to it. If you need any help with it give me a shout and I'll try and help you.

    I hope you can get a good fit on the bracelet, I ended up buying the rubber strap for it because the links are huge and the 'half links' aren't half at all, they are like 3/4 links.

    It's cool that they put the setting reminders on the back of the watch, very helpful... :D
