    These are TAG's entry level quartz line, so prices are reasonable, running from $1000-$1600.

    Yeah well I wonder how they get the soft flowing caramel inside the Caramilk bar but you don't see me making a god damn thread about it. Slap your wife Baygirl, straighten him out.

    I'm pretty sure it would be around the $800 mark.

    The F1 Series got seriously nice in the last 5 years or so. I'm really feeling the F1 Ceramic.

    Just tough to justify spending over 500 on a quartz.

    Calgary Jewellery will have 'em. These are available by months end. Some are special order only. I'll update the first post with the model #'s in case you want to inquire.

    I never buy watches, what is next after quartz and what are the aspects which make it better? I guess what I want to know is why is hard to justify over $500 on a quartz watch?

    Talking purely from a pricepoint perspective, quartz is your entry level battery operated watch. Very accurate. +/- a couple seconds a year.

    Next is mechanical/automatic, where time keeping is done mechanically with gears and springs, time regulation controlled by a hairspring and balance wheel. You'll need to either wind it, or it has a rotor on the back where it winds itself as your arm moves around normally. Accuracy is generally +/- 10 seconds a day if regulated properly. Accuracy changes based on level of wind (power reserve), gravitational field, orientation of balance wheel, etc.

    Next, is the tourbillon. To offset the effects of gravity, the balance wheel is housed in a cage and rotates as it works so gravity affects it evenly. There's single axis cages, and 2-axis cage to negate the full 3 dimensional effects. Accuracy is, believe it or not, the same, but it looks bling.

    So yea, the more expensive watch is, the less accurate it is lol. Mechanical watches are like micro machines, it's pretty cool to see it work and have a mechanical marvel on your wrist. At least, that's what the marketing tells me.

    Oh yea, 90% of the mechanical watches there use mass produced movements from ETA (swatch), or other clone manufactures such as Selita, as those patents have long expired.

    Just checked with Calgary Jewellers and they will be getting these by end of Jan or early Feb. According to them these are priced between $1500 - $ 2100.
    Black stealth is $1900
    Ceramic is $2100

    The benefit of masks is not known at this time. But we do know it is some non-trivial amount more than zero.

    We also know that the cost of mask use is, essentially, zero.

    So the cost:benefit of mask use is approaching infinity. I'll take that every time. And every time I see someone without a mask, I think they are stupid.

    Aiya... 1900 for the black stealth. maybe I should just go for the carrera instead. I'm a watch noob and need to learn quickly. Trying to pick out something for the upcoming b-day.

    Yeah. Too much money for quartz. At least, that's how I perceive it. Mechanical watches should be more because of the craftsmanship.

    If you just want an F1 for the sake of having a TAG and in Vegas, go to the outlet store. $300-400!

    Well the big thing is I liked the look of the all black stealth and figured if it was 800-1000 that would be a good price. But if its nearing the 2K mark might as well just shoot for little nicer.

    I just need to do some research soon here. See if I end up with a tag or brietling (prob too much). see what interests me.

    I agree. It is little too much for a entry level Quartz. At this price point you might as well spend the extra and get a mechanichal watch. - I know it will be atleast double for a mechanichal one but the price point for these watches are not here or there.

    Not really. The quoted prices are MSRP and prior to discounts.
