My husband is a watch fanatic, he has 3 TAG Heuer's, an Oakley and a Rolex and is always looking for more to add to his collection. I, on the other hand, am usually quite happy with any brand, and I had been wearing the same Coach watch for almost 8 years. While getting my wedding ring inspected for its semi-annual "check-up", we were looking at watches and the TAG Heuer Aquaracer caught my eye.
I tried it on, and it was a huge difference from my existing Coach watch. It was a lot bigger and heavier, the face was round instead of square, it felt HUGE. It was intriguing though, and I started thinking that I might like to have that watch! I finally decided that I not only wanted the watch, but that I *DESERVED* the watch, and requested hubby to purchase it for me as the "push present" of our second child. He actually listened to me, and totally surprised me with it a week before our daughter was due when we were out to dinner. Score!!
This watch is awesome. I love the style of it, the brushed stainless steel bracelet, the mother of pearl face and the diamond chip number markers. The larger face (27mm) took a bit to get used to, but now you couldn't get me to go back to a smaller face. The watch is also water resistant to 300 meters, which I'll take their word for, I'm no swimmer! I will say that the watch does great with spit up and cleanings, it's been cleaned a couple times already in the two short months I've had it (thank you daughter!).
I am really glad that I encouraged hubby to splurge on me for this purchase, with TAG's quality, I know this watch will last for many years, and it will look great that entire time as well!
