Why We Love Tag Heuer Watches and How to Spot a Fake One
Over the years, TAG Heuer has earned a reputation for producing exceptionally durable and technically-complex timepieces that are the perfect blend of style and function. These watches have graced the wrists of adventurers everywhere, from the depths of the ocean to the vast expanse of outer space. In fact, TAG Heuer made history by becoming the first Swiss watchmaker to send one of its timepieces into space, worn by none other than John Glenn on the Mercury-Atlas 6 mission.
For many years, TAG Heuer watches have been priced between $1,500 to $5,000—a fair value in comparison to other luxury watch brands, making it extremely popular. But this popularity also made the brand a target for counterfeiters. These fake watches are often sold at suspiciously low prices of around $500, tempting the unwary consumer with a seemingly irresistible bargain.
So, how do you spot fake TAG Heuer watches from authentic ones?
The key to spotting fakes lies in the details, particularly when it comes to product identification numbers. Authentic TAG Heuer watches are engraved with a serial number and model number on the back of their case. Without these crucial numbers, the authenticity of the timepiece may be brought into question.
Each watch is assigned a unique serial number that serves as a one-of-a-kind identifier. This serial number should always match the one found on the official paperwork accompanying the watch.
Additionally, the model number plays a critical role in confirming a watch’s authenticity. The model number is unique to the specific design of the watch and should be consistent across all watches with the same appearance. Any variation in the model number could be an indication of a counterfeit watch. To be certain, make sure that the model number on the watch matches the one on the official TAG Heuer paperwork.
