At a great entry-level price for a certified Swiss chronometer with an automatic mechanical movement, we have this very nice, very smart-looking stainless-steel, silver-dial 40mm TAG Heuer Grand CARRERA. This watch's official model reference number is WAV511B.BA0900. It was new in Nov 2013, comes with its box and books/papers and is in very good condition.
Two stand-out features of this watch are:
- a display window set into the back of the watch's case (as you can see in one of the photos above), enabling you to appreciate the exquisite, high-precision, fine miniature engineering, craftsmanship and finishing that has gone into the Calibre 6 movement inside; and
- a novel "second disc". Instead of the usual second hand, this watch displays seconds via a rotating disc in the subsidiary aperture at the 6 o'clock position of the dial: a really neat feature that sits alongside the faceted and polished hands and indices, and also a date aperture at 3 o'clock.
The dial is protected under a scratch-resistant "glass" that's actually made from a piece of sapphire, an ultra-hard gemstone material. This has been given a treatment to reduce reflections, making the clear dial even easier to read.
The watch is mounted on a very smart link bracelet which is closed with a neat, push-button-release double-folding clasp.
Our Price and Guarantee
This very good-condition Swiss watch from the highly reputed TAG Heuer house could be on your wrist for the very accessible price of just £1,795 fully inclusive. (Compare this to the list price of £2,850 for the same watch when brand new: you get to save over £1000, or 37%, compared to buying new: buying pre-owned is buying smart, and we'd also defy anybody to tell that this isn't a new watch when they see it on your wrist from one or two of paces away!)
Furthermore, we will guarantee this item for a full 12 months from the date of your purchase for your peace of mind. And our guarantee is underpinned by the fact that we have our own, on-site jewellery and watch-repair workshop manned by highly experienced technicians. We also have unique access to original parts and the very best off-site technicians for those rare, trickier cases! So rest assured, we have you covered.
If you would like to know more about this watch, don't hesitate either to contact us* or—even better—to visit our store in Manchester city centre, where you'll also be able to see around one hundred and fifty other pre-owned Swiss watches that have been carefully selected, based on their condition, from among the many, many watches that we see every week. (We only sell the cream of the crop to the public, and this particular TAG watch is a great example of that: watches that don't make the grade are sold on to smaller trade buyers / eBayers, etc.)
*When enquiring about this watch, please also quote its unique stock/item number, which is WSN 1352, so that it's easier for us to identify and locate the watch and its details for you. Thank you!
