Tag Heuer Formula 1 Questions

Watch guys, a quick question for you.

I inherited this watch last year when my father-in-law passed (we discovered it buried one of his dresser drawers). Apparently he found this watch when he was out somewhere, so it wasn't an original purchase.

Anyway, I'm just wondering a couple of things:

- Does if it have any real value?

- Does anyone have a good source for obtaining a proper band for it? Ideally, if you're familiar with the design, I'd love to see a pic of the original band.

It's a little small for my taste, the whole body is only about 1.25" wide. But, I do think it's kind of cool and I could see myself wearing this as more of an "active"/"casual" piece occasionally.

** Please pay no attention to the band. My FIL was NOT a watch guy, he loved to fix things up and, judging by his other watches, only liked these kinds of bands.**

I owned one of those many years back I think it had a blue bezel if I recall. It wont have any value but the sentimental one... I forget what the original bank looked like.. ?

Awesome... thanks guys! I've Googled like crazy, but can't seem to find much info. I like watches, but I'm not as intimate with some of the brands like many on here are, so I figured this is the best place to start. Appreciate the help.

I worked watches at a jewelry store when this came out...it is the cheapest TAG watch ever created. Only $700 new. so this is ugh yeah worthless PS the most expensive part about a TAG is typically the band.

All good info, thanks everyone. I didn't think it could possibly be worth much, judging by the bezel and case (doesn't seem very high quality). I guess I'll take it somewhere and see what they think it'll take to get it running again and grab a nice rubber strap for it.

-I see these on ebay quite often. Close to mint will get you 200-320- depending on bracelet type and color combo. Beat up pieces usually go ~$170. Your piece as a head only would be a chunk under that.

-There is an ebay seller who sells the original rubber strap for $90. They also came in a stainless jubilee style bracelet.

This also came in a chrono version. Those normally go for $425+.

Great looking

It probably just needs a battery.
