Here we have my Tag Heuer Carrera - with a striking silver face.
Watch is around 12 years old. I have had the watch for around 4 years, buying it through ebay (from a jeweller).
Please form your own view on the condition of the watch from the photos.
Two points to draw out:
- Bezel showing signs of wear and tear
- Small dint on case underneath bezel between 10 o'clock and 11 o'clock. It's barely visible unless you know it's there, and is difficult to photograph (although I've tried to show this)
If you're concerned about the dint, it may be of some comfort to know that a new case itself doesn't seem too expensive (see e.g. this completed listing: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/230997792055?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649)
Recently taken in for repairs at an approved Tag dealer to fix a misbehaving button (I chose not to get a full service though, as the watch seems fine mechanically).
Watch strap fits my wrist (around 7.25 inches), and there is one spare link (not shown in photos).
I would prefer to post the watch (UK only - by royal mail special delivery which will cost about £6), but happy with collection if you prefer (and after you've paid) either at my home in Seer Green (HP9), or near Liverpool Street Station, (London).
Payment by PayPal only.
All of my auctions go the distance, to be fair to everyone. Even if you apparently live in the next village...
Good luck with your bidding!

Additional photos added as per request (8-10). As part of this, I've spotted another dint in case between 7 and 8 o'clock.
On 19-Aug-13 at 10:52:57 BST, seller added the following information:
As bad timing, a problem arose with the watch over the weekend, as follows:
- When screwing in the Crown, it does not fully tighten, but instead continues to turn around
- The watch still works (though I'd question whether it's now fully waterproof), but this is clearly a fault
I've asked for a quotation for repair work, and was told that the most likely issue is that the Crown and case pipe needs to be replace (costing c.£90), but that this would need to be confirmed by a workshop inspection (which I don't have time to organise before the auction ends).
Rather than get the work done and re-list (and having just spend c.£170 getting a button fixed), I am selling the watch with this fault, taking the view that some bidders will be able to fix the watch themselves at a much lower cost than trade prices. If you need any further information about the fault please say.
