Tag Heuer watches are Swiss-made luxury timepieces. They’re known for their good quality and their great colection ,A genuine Tag Heuer watch should last you a lifetime. That makes them also one of the most often faked wristwatches.

If you found the Tag Heuer that you were looking for at a great price and think you found the best deal, you need to make sure that the watch you’re about to purchase is a genuine Tag Heuer. Sometimes when looking for the best price that will fit our budget we overlook the quality of the watch, and end up buying a replica instead.

So if you’re in the market for a genuine Tag Heuer watch and want to ensure that the watch you’re getting is authentic and not an elaborated copy, you need to look for the following:



 The crown should not show any signs of glue on it. Also, the watch should wind smooth and free, without the feel of the movement moving in the case. Cheap replica Tag Heuer watches might have the logo actually glued to the end of the crown and wouldn’t wind as smooth as the genuine Tag.

Face of the watch

Look closely inside the watch face. A genuine Tag Heuer should be clean and not have any sign of dust. If you notice dust, fingerprints, hair or anything else inside the watch, then the watch is fake.

The Dial

The printing on the face should be sharp and clear and not fuzzy or blurry. A real Tag Heuer has clear printing and is very easy to read.


Most Tag Heuer watches use a chemical called luminova. It makes the hand and the dial glow in the dark and helps you read the time in the dark. A fake Tag will not glow as bright as the real Tag -- the display will glow poorly or not at all.

Swiss made

Find the words Swiss Made on the bottom of the face. Some fakes actually say Japanese Movement, which is not printed on any real Tag Heuer watches.

Watch Case

Tag Heuer’s case is made of black suede. The Tag Heuer emblem is engraved on the bottom. which is unique to the Tag Heuer name and design.

Certificate of Authenticity

All Tag Heuer watches are delivered to the buyer with a Certificate of Authenticity. Before paying the requested price for a Tag Heuer, require a Certificate of Authenticity. Your watch will have a number unique to that watch only. If the dealer cannot provide the document, it’s probably a fake watch.

The band


Check the band for links. Just look for a left and right piece to each of the links. Fakes will have solid links, or they may have a line on them that's supposed to fool you into thinking the links are two pieces.


Q.Can I trust a seller with a very high feedback rating that said the watch it’s authentic?
A: No, Most eBay watches seller can’t even spot an authentic Tag Heuer, with today technology even watches like Patek Philippe and Rolex can spot a replica only when opening the inside of the watch.
Furthermore, don’t let a fancy box and certificate papers distract your judgment, these cost just a few bucks to produce.
