    I was giving this today and have no idea where to start as I have only bought watches and never done any type of repairs.

    Battery is dead and surface corrosion but not sure if there is any damage underneath.

    Here are the pictures.

    Can anyone ID the model?

    I'm having trouble believing in a real Tag Heuer with a dive bezel but a snap-on caseback, and a non-stainless steel case. In fact none of my googling is turning up anything like it.

    My vote is bin it.

    Tag tend to really engrave their casebacks deeply and write a lot more on them. And they always screw down.

    Yepp I was looking at it and comparing it to my genuine Tag Link and it is definitely a fake. I noticed the same with the snap on case back and the serial number was incorrect. Plus the links have exposed pins on the outside, not the quality of a tag.

    The good news is though that you can 'revive' it for about $25 in Chinatown in NYC!

    Sucks, but at least you didn't pay for it.

    Its a Tag S/EL knockoff. The S/EL was the predecessor to the Link series.
