AMAZON and Jomashop

Summary: I know a number of poeple who own TAG Heuer watches and each has been happy with their watch. I have ordered many products over the years on Amazon, so I purchased a TAG Heuer watch from Amazon and Jomashop without ever realizing what I was getting myself into. After only four months of ownership, the watch was inaccurate and stopped working if not worn for a few hours. I took the watch to an authorized TAG Heuer dealer, an old Jewelry store in my town.
Summary: The watch looks good, but not happy with its performance. Keeps loosing over a minute a week. After taking the watch off for about six hours, it stops working. Its supposed to work for about 36 hours according to the book. Bought it from Jomashop.com through Amazon. Hope its not a replica. Planning on sending it back for repair.
Summary: I did not buy this watch on Amazon (although I was thinking of buying a Tag here), I bought this at an AD here in the Philippines. At first I wanted the other 41mm aquaracer automatic but I ended up getting this model. It was a great decision for me! I loved the small details such as the orange tip and the black bezel. The watch looks pretty big on my wrist and it feels awesome. It has been keeping great time for an automatic.
Summary: I just bought this watch in the Bahamas last week. I already have a Tag that is 20 years old and still runs perfectly but is showing it's age a bit in terms of styling so I wanted to get a new one. The crystal on my old Tag does not have a single scratch on it after many hard blows and has never needed repair. This watch is beautiful and looks so sharp on my wrist. I like that it is an automatic and so will never need batteries.
Summary: This is a great product it has a nice 7750 movement in it which is more or less an industry standard with most watch companies using this ebauche in there watch case. I would much prefer to have many other watches for cost of what a TAG costs. The other thing is that it is hard to get them serviced locally if companies are not willing to accommodate the little guy; I am a CW21 watchmaker and a W.O.S.T.E.P graduate and cannot obtain a crown for a Aquaracer.
Summary: This is my first premium or luxury watch. I have had Tissots in the past but this was my first entrance into a watch that retails close to 2 grand. I must say this is now a prize possession of mine. It looks great with a suit, which I wear at least 3 times a week for work, but it also looks incredible with a tee-shirt and jeans. I have gotten tons of compliments on it. It is not as flashy as some Tags which I like.
Summary: I'm a big fan of diver watches and this one is my second favourite ever. My first favourite is still the Omega Seamaster 2222.8 but I can't afford one yet. I've read the other review on this watch and in response I'd like to say that mine has never ever stopped unless I don't wear it for about three days. The watch can also be wound by hand, in case you don't wear it at work or something then you can wind it when you get home.
Summary: The watch is over rated. There is too much glare, and the automatic winding feature is not reliable. Many times, it stops in the middle of the night even though I wear it 24/7. I moved it to my right wrist tinking it needed more arm movemement. The net result is it stops at about 4:00 AM as opposed to 1:30 AM on my left wrist. The rotary bezel has sharp edges, I assume for getting a good grip. But after owning many such watches, I don't see the need for the sharp edges.
