    I've never really taken pictures before but I'll try take some and do a comparison with the pictures from this rep this evening. You're right it's incredibly difficult to tell! It's a great beater watch but the ironic thing is that my reps are probably higher quality than my Tag rep haha!

    how to reset chronograph

    Pull out the crown to the first position (where you set quick date change) and the chrono start button (top) will move the 1/10 second hand ( 2 0 clock sub dial). the stop button (bottom) will move the chrono second hand forward in 1 second increments. Pulling the crown out to the second position (time setting) and pressing the start button wil move the 30 minute counter (10 o clock subdial). Do this until hands line up and return the crown and screw in and everything is ready to go.

    Hope this helps.

    BTW there is a newer version of the F1 out which is more accurate. check out my reply to nlnlnlnene's thread "Most accurate Quartz rep? Gofl or F1"

    :thumbsup:

    The movement of Tag F1 is not fake.This moveent is very cheap. I think 36 $. This movement is used in many watches like Tissot ....My Gen F1 has same movement. I buy it form official tag heuer dealer. Case of the watsh,dial on pictures is not same like mine this is the difrences.And braclet is diffrent

    There are few brands which is very famous in India and Tag Heuer is one of them. I saw few online reviews about Tag Heuer and all are positive. No dobout wathes are very good and awesome. Information and images are also very good.

    Regards

    Tag heuer just came up with a special version of the Formula 1 wich includes the Venezuelan flag, it is due to a foundation for the needed people.

    The AD just sent me this mail

    Wich in english says:

    In dollars at today change rate, thats about 2500 bucks...

    If I only could mod the rep to look like this special version :')

    Look how it looks

    My first post here & am thinking of getting an F1.

    It looks like a long haul to get a good rep, hopefully I can find something I like.

    I love the F1s but the used prices for a Quartz watch which is relatively inexpensive new are hard to stomach... Anyone know if you can still get the decent reps of these?

    I think I may still have a first generation of this watch (a gen version). It's gotta be like 12 years old now at least. I wonder what it would be worth? I def like the new model

    i like the 3-6-9 subdial combination but the size at 41mm is just a tad small given that this is a sports watch plus it has pretty thick bezel (forcing a smaller dial/crystal diameter). I tried on the 44mm version and the size is good but missing the 3-6-9 subdial combination.
