    I am in the process of purchasing a Tag Heuer watch as a gift. Can any of you suggest a reputable online watch dealer?

    So far, the best price I've found is at prestigetime.com. Have any of you ever heard of or dealt with them?

    As always, TIA!

    Alot of TAg's and other fine watches. They are genuine but I believe they dont have the Serial number on them.

    I bought my Tag from Ashford about 4 years ago. It was about $100 cheaper then. They're not the cheapest anymore, but I had problems with mine about 20 mos after I bought it. They replaced it, no questions asked.

    150shot,

    I did see this site in my search but I don't think they had the watch I was looking for. Just out of curiosity, the watches don't have the serial number on them? What does that mean?

    Some places machine off the serial numbers to protect themselves or the stores they obtained the watches from. Per manufacturers policy, they are limited in the amount they can discount.

    Cheaper yes, but they come with no warranties by the manufacturer.

    I've used Wingates a few times. Their website is www.tic-tock.com. Very reputable and easy to deal with. The have a very diverse selection, from 2k up to 250k. New and pre-owned, with very good prices.
