Without going into the technical subtleties of the differencesoriginal Swiss watches and their copies, it is necessary to pay attention first of all to the price. TAG Heuer watches (original) cost from several thousand dollars. If you keep in mind the legendary models, replicas of which are in great demand, prices are higher by an order of magnitude. Therefore, the offer to purchase a TAG Heuer watch at a price of up to a thousand dollars should be regarded as an offer to buy a good imitation.
If you still have doubts about the authenticity of the purchased TAG Heuer watches, the following features should be borne in mind:
1. On the dial of the original watch there are inscriptions and signs:
- an invoice with a logo;
- name of the collection;
- designation of caliber;
- swiss made;
- If the model uses a mechanism - a certified chronometer, there should be a marking of "CHRONOMETER" and "OFFICIALLY CERTIFIED".
In addition, depending on the presence of self-winding and additional functions, the corresponding inscriptions can be applied: AUTOMATIC, CHRONOMETER, GMT, GRANDE DATE.
2. The manufacturer applies the classic methods of decorating the cases (satin), the details of the mechanism and the dial ("Geneva waves"). Self-winding mechanisms use skeletonizing of rotors and their engraving, for example "TAG Heuer - Caliber 1887 - Swiss Made".
3. On the hands and hour markers of the dial is applied a phosphor. The color of the composition should be identical. The presence of unevenness, streaks, bubbles is not allowed.
4. Overhead signs on the dial, labels, inscriptions and numbers occupy the place they have been assigned. In the copy, some asymmetry of the elements is noticeable, they have deviations from the correct position.
5. On female models with diamonds, attention should be paid to the type of stones and their attachment. The stones should be clear and sparkle in direct sunlight. Cutting is ideal when viewed in a magnifying glass. Mounting is reliable, the depth of landing is the same. Stones should have the same size and a uniform color. The documentation for the watch should include a certificate for diamonds.
If you still have doubts, go to the officialsite of the company, which has high-quality photos of models. Compare the clock with the enlarged image. They must be identical in the smallest detail.
The last word in determining the authenticity of the watch belongs to the master in a certified service center.</ p>
