  • I just bought the Tag Formula 1 and first off let me say I love the watch, Looks great, good size, Not too big or too small, Bezel clicks strong, weight feels good, keeps perfect time, BUT, I hate the cheap Quartz movement, NOT the quartz movement, The cheap quartz movement, Yea I know, It's a Swiss Movement, But hear me out, I normally am a Automatic movement guy but I love the look of the Khaki olive drab dial so much that I will not be bothered by the quartz movement, My problem is,,, I like perfect time, I set my watches when the second hand is on twelve so that when it passes the twelve my minute hand reads that exact minute, Not in between two different minutes, I own many watches and a few of them are Quartz movement, Seiko, Luminox, Ect, Well when I set the minute hand exact on the marker and push in the crown there is so much play that the minute hand does not even start to move for about 20 seconds and so when the second hand sweeps 12 again the minute hand is in the middle of two different minutes, WTF

        12, But WTF, My $200 Seikos QM do not do this, Luminox tends to have this problem but I did not pay $700 for it, Come on Tag, Who’s in charge over there, Who approved this, Easy problem to fix for you, Just tell the maker either fix it or you will find a new movement co. They will correct this is about 10 min’s I suspect. $700, Again, Love the watch, Hate the cheap ass movement the charge me top dollar for.
