I'm going to make this thread a sticky so we can put the authenticity questions in one spot. I hope this is a solution.... we'll see :)

Please post good pics.... text descriptions are not very useful. Pics of the movement are important!

Re: Fake busters thread: ask about authenticity in this thread!

Goodmorning,

First of all I wanna say: i'm from the Netherlands, and my english is okay, but not perfect;) I hope you will understand my questions.
Second: I wanna thank you for reading/answering my questions.

My Father died 2 years ago, and he left me some watches.
He was a big fan of collectable things. But you never where he get it from.

I have here a Vintage Tag Heuer watch, maybe you can help me out. I dont want to sell it, but i want to know the history about it.


  • Is this watch a real TH watch?
  • Watch model is? Whats the name? Or the Number?
  • What year?
  • It's a quartz.
  • What is it worth? How much do i have to pay in a Jewelry in this condition
  • ​Can you tell me more about this item?

​Thank you for your time!

Check out the Archived TAG Heuer Catalogs sticky. Go to the 1991 catalog and then go to picture/page 100. I think your watch is in the upper right hand corner of the photo.

Re: Fake busters thread: ask about authenticity in this thread!

We don't do valuations... too hard to be accurate on anything that is important. You can get an idea by looking at eBay listings, especially completed listings that actually sold.

I think this is a full lume dial.

Re: Fake busters thread: ask about authenticity in this thread!

thanks for the help.

here's another that i'm looking at... i've seen the grey face models of this have markings on the bezel (cjf2115 i think) but the black and white/silver dont? still deciding between an aquaracer and a link but if you can help me determine if this is real or fake, that'd be great! thanks

I don't know if the lack of a display back is a problem... check the archived catalogs. No movement pic always bothers me...

Re: Fake busters thread: ask about authenticity in this thread!

cfprelude, there is a thread called "is my tag heuer authentic?" that was used for these issues. But that thread became so long and many people were posting individual threads for their authenticity questions. Our moderator Eeeb has now created this thread here and your post is in a good place. Thanks for asking and you are very welcome to the forum!

Re: Fake busters thread: ask about authenticity in this thread!

Hello,

I am currently looking at this pre-owned Tag watch. Please see photographs below. I was wondering if this watch is a replica or genuine? Thank you in advance for your time and help!

Re: Fake busters thread: ask about authenticity in this thread!

Here is a link to the eBay auction for more photographs if the above is not sufficient. Been searching for a watch since I first signed up on WUS back in March 2011. It's funny how your budget starts off at $500 and one year after it ballons to $1k! -_-. Thank you again for your time and help, it is much appreciated.

Tag Heuer Professional 200m - I bought this as my first tag, from Japan. I didn't realise how small it was, I think it must be a ladies; a Japanese ladies at that as the bracelet is pretty small. Hopefully it's real?

Re: Fake busters thread: ask about authenticity in this thread!

This is an ISA quartz movement. I do not recall any TAGHeuer with ISA movements. I suspect it is a fake advertised as having a 'Swiss Movement' so they can charge more for the fake.

Others may know more.
