My Prize for Being Someone's Dad

For the past 2 years, every time that I strolled through the watch section at the local DFS, I tried this watch on for size. For the past 2 years I've tried it on and found reasons not to buy it. Reason #1: It's a frickn quartz. Reason #2: It's got a frickn rubber strap. Reason #3: It's a frickn Tag. So, I did this dance for 2 years with the person behind the counter and my inside voice ... until this past weekend. On Saturday, I was strolling through the watch mecca of Guam and just my luck, there was an unadvertised sale on Tag! It's wasn't just the ordinary 3% off for locals, it was the legendary 20% off sale that rarely comes around these parts. So, all those reasons I listed above went out the door and I told my inside voice to shut the hell up. So without further a-doo-doo, I present the TAG Heuer (WAZ1110.FT8023) Formula 1, in all it's battery operated, rubberized glory!

Thanks for the kind words gents! Methinks this will be worn a lot. I'd like to buy the steel bracelet eventually, but I haven't been able to find a source on the inter-webs yet. If anyone has any tips on where I can find the OEM bracelet, please let me know.

Very cool looking diver- I like the hands a lot- a diver on rubber- it's almost whimsical. I like divers on rubber straps; screw the bracelet.

Nice catch, arty.

I have an older Formula 1 on rubber, and let me tell you - genuine replacement Tag bracelets and/or straps are such incredible gouges it's not even funny (for instance, to replace the rubber strap on your watch would probably be upwards of 300 smackers). But if you wanted to go aftermarket, I can't imagine it wouldn't relatively easy to find something.
