Tag Heuer Formula 1 Grande Date review
Summary of customer’s reviews
Many people consider this timepieces a little bit overpriced because of the movement system implemented from Tag Heuer. In order to make a more affordable watch not so exciting “engine” was put on these watches. However the price is still a little bit higher for a watch at all. Of course the whole quality of the watch is very high and it shows same durability results as the Aquaracer Sea Master and Submariner.
The size of the case and the styling is great. The watch is comfortable to be worn and very easy to be noticed on your hand. The average durability of the watch has been proven for many customer reviews to be more than five years. All this is because of the many quality tests that every Tag Heuer time piece has to pass trough in order to go to the market. Furthermore the mixture of titanium, sapphire crystal, crown guards and hardened, aerospace grade stainless polished steel is incredible. It provides both excellent durability and magnificent design.
Even the fact that Tag Heuer is lower class brand watchmaker than Rolex or Omega the finishing and all details of their products are just perfect. Generally if you like sporty time piece with cool fit and design and you don’t care too much about the automatic movement system then this should be your choice.
To conclude we shall mention that the reasonable price for Tag Heuer Formula 1 Grande Date is around 700-800 USD. However there are some customized versions and their priced could reach 1200 USD or even a little bit more. The best price that you could find for such luxury watches would be on Amazon. Generally the local retailers have to pay rent and they have to invest in order to have a stock of the products and that drives the price up. Of course you can check this by yourself.
