    $1500! cough splutter cough cough!


    It was looking interesting until I realized you're literally paying for the Tag Heuer brand name.

    The Tag name...is worth the money.

    I have around 20 watches ranging from 1865 to 1955. My Tag Autavia is the most accurate watch I've ever had.

    I bought it at an estate auction around 15 years ago. Paid $650. Been tempted to sell it numerous times(these fetch $3000 routinely).

    Is it worth the name for an otherwise mid-pack android computer watch? Do you expect to happily buy this in estate auctions in 15 years? We'll see how much the brand name -- vice their hardware quality -- is worth.

    But, if it "fails"(to catch on) or you decide it isn't for you...

    You can trade it in on a normal mechanical Carrera.

    Lowlights of this watch...

    Rubber strap(which are available on $1000 watches...)
    Plastic back. First ever Tag w/o a metal back.
    Slightly behind the times OS.

    So, buy this for $1500...and you get $1500 credit toward a standard line Carrera, which start at $3000.

    Luxury watch owners are going to buy this in droves.

    Essentially a "free watch" for two years.
