Tag Heuer now in Hoboken!

W. Kodak becomes only authorized Tag Heuer dealer in Hoboken

Just because a new hot dog joint is coming, doesn’t mean that Newark Street between Washington and Hudson Streets lacks any high-end class!

I spotted some sweet Tag Heuer watches in the corner of my eye, and found out that W. Kodak Jewelers became the only authorized dealer in Hoboken!

What that usually means is that any other place selling them either has Tag rejects, knock-offs, or “hot” – and most certainly not qualified for warranty. Keep that in the back of your mind when shopping for Christmas presents this year!

    Any other place selling TAGs doesn’t necessarily either have rejects, knock-offs, or stolen goods. Most are usually just grey market – meaning they got them from an authorized seller and are reselling them without manufacturer approval. Though brand new and authentic, you are correct that the manufacturer will not honor the warranty if you buy from such sellers. An example of a grey-market seller who is selling legit, but non-authorized Tag Heuer watches would be most online venders.

    Lastly, Tag Heuer hardly qualifies as high-end among watch brands. With most of their watch lines topping out at around $1000-$1500 or so, they are midrange at best. The entry level high-end brands begin with such makers as Breitling, Omega, and Rolex whose cheapest watches will begin at $2500-$5000 and top out at 5 figures. Then you get to ultra high-end brands such as Patek Phillipe or A Lange and Sohne that start well into 5 figures and can hit 6 or even 7 figures.

    Semantics. Tag Heuer is certainly not a ultra high-end brand (like Patek or IWC), but I’d venture that the brand’s top line watches (Monaco and Carrera chronos, for example) are comprable to low range Rolexes and Breitlings.

    Lastly, the proper pronoun for a corporation is “it.” Therefore, the second sentence of your second paragraph should read, “[w]ith most of its watch lines topping out at around $1000-$1500 or so, they are midrange at best.”

    That is all.
