We don’t make that statement lightly, as Globalists continue to transfer wealth from 90% of the population on Earth into their private island tax havens. Bills are rising, shortages of essentail goods and services are being created. Winter is coming. We know £2700 is a huge chunk of cash.
But consider this; if you are looking for a 300m Swiss dive watch with a prestige name then the latest TAG Aquaracer GMT offers value at that price. Compared to rivals like the Blancpain FiftyFathoms (£12,000), the Omega Seamaster Pro 300 ( starts at £4800) or the Breitling Superocean automatic (starts at £3750), the TAG offering is a cheapie.
Yes, it’s true that there are cheaper Swiss dive watches, but the TAG Aquaracer is a model that you can sell or PX easily in the future. Try selling an Oris Aquis and you’ll find very few watch shops want to offer a decent percentage of its new price. The reason? Mass discounting by High Street jewellers, which means a new Oris 300m dive watch costs just 1200 quid, thus devaluing the older ones at a stroke.
The TAG laso has that unusual bezel, which offers that Royal Oak/Casioak 50p piece edginess. It stands out. Plus, they make an orange dial variant of the new Aquaracer. In a sea of blue/black/white dial dive watches, we think that offers a refreshing alternative. Be bold, why not?
It’s a 43mm wide case on the latest TAG Aquaman but with a slimmer profile for this year. The GMT function and date feature are practical touches as well.
The only downside is the Cal 5 movement, which is based on the Sellita SW200 series, kinda budget Swiss really, with its roots way back in the ETA 2824 series. In fact the Oris Aquis uses a very similar SW200 movement. So you could argue that by buying an Oris you get the same engine for less cash, but you miss out on that TAG style and its resale value in the future.
