    Thanks for the great info DC! I now believe that my F1 (CAZ 1110) which is 42 mm has been increased to 43 mm, with the newer model being the CAZ1010. They increased the size from "man" (1) to "large man" (0). So, a 1 mm increase in size to go along with the new logo! It seems like such a small change to make - I wonder why they did it?

    Model codes turned into real or fake forum.

    Back to model codes So the Dial does not have a list of codes?

    Also my 1887 CAR2012 and my other TAG I think both have -number. It means year of production is my guess. At first I thought it was version but the 2012 silver with rose gold did not have 4 versions that I know of. The first one I bought had -0 returned it and got a -4. Anyone have the correct info for that part of the model number? Thanks.

    It did, but you've got us back on track ;)

    TAG Heuer use the "-0" (or other number) when the same reference number has running changes- it's not for years of production. For example, the dial finish may change from one year to the next. They won't change the reference number, just add "-0" or "-1" if there's already been a "-0"

    Some of these changes you won't see. With the Calibre 1887, they changed the supplier of the hairsprings, so that drove a "-0".

    The only major change to your watch is the one discussed here- http://forums.calibre11.com/threads/updated-2015-carrera-1887-43mm-small-change.23762/

    Can someone tell me what year the Tag Heuer I have was made? It is marked WK1111.0 and below that it looks like ZZ6590 though could be 226590. It is stainless, marked Professional 200M, a man's watch. Does it have a model name?

    The WK1111 is a 2000 series. Yours would have a white dial and quartz movement. According to the Calibre 11 Ultimate Guide to the TH 2000, the WK series version came out in 1995. So I'd guess the watch was made sometime in the mid to late 90's. As for the exact date, that will be difficult to determine.

    First thing, how are you all taking such nice pictures? I wanted to show a great picture of my first TAG Heuer, but after many attempts with lighting, without, off angle, straight on, white or black background, I just can't get a decent picture. That's dust to the left of the minute hand.
    I would like to learn more about it, date of manufacture, operation and so on.
    Model is WJF2110. The face has Link Automatic 200 meters.
    I am confused about the "Link" because I don't believe it's a newer style with fancy bluetooth connection. Tag Heuer 01.jpg

    Hi- have answered your question in the other thread- none of the Link models have bluetooth connection, although that's a reasonable assumption given the name ;)

    Do we have an inventory of "-X" changes? I just bought a CAR2A10 and it came with a -5 ... surprised there were already 5 different revisions of this watch! The most obvious difference between the original release and the one I got is that the case is no longer brushed, but polished stainless.

    No, I don't know exactly. The first change was the change from the V2 to the V3 version of the 1887 and then the change to Hairspring supplier was another variant. Add that to the brushed vs. polished case and we have three of the five...but not sure on the other two

    That's super interesting. And given that we're already on a -5 that must mean there are actually 7 total versions. The original, and the following -X variants.

    I started putting together details of the different clasps as I have seen quite a few questions on the web about the right clasp for a given strap. The table below is as far as I got the other day. Can anyone add more details?

    Code Material Logo Strap Thickness

    FC 5014 Stainless steel TAG Heuer 2mm
    FC 5037 Stainless steel TAG Heuer 3mm
    FC 5039 Titanium TAG Heuer 3mm
    FC 5040 ??? TAG Heuer ??
    FC 5042 Stainless steel Heuer ??
    FC 5049 Stainless steel Heuer 3mm

    Woah, that blew me away, lol. It doesn't give the material or corresponding strap thickness though. The latter being the crucial piece of information when buying aftermarket straps.

    Hi Guys-

    I'm new to this forum and really need help. My husband bought me this Tag Heuer watch in about 2004. It was brand new and i'm the only owner. I'm looking to sell it on Ebay and upgrade to a newer Tag watch. The model # is really hard to read... But here is what I can make out so far... Just need some help with the specs, model # and serial # (HELP)
    Model # WJ181A Serial # du8871

    That seems to make sense. W means watch, J means Link, the first 1 means Quartz, the 8 is the size although I'm not sure what that corresponds to as I haven't seen an 8 used for size before. The second 1 is the case material, in this case steel and the A is just the dial colour.

    3 makes more sense as that indicates the Ladies size.
