Not one for matchy-matchy, but that combo is spot-on.
Sweet, the navy blue dial is cool too.
Cheers. I needed a strap and this popped up on watch gecko, it's too big but a razor blade trimmed the shoulders.
Was dad's watch but he hated wearing it so gave it to me. It had a really narrow black leather strap on it.
Decided to keep this and sell my modern seamaster 300 instead .
Partly because of my 50 year old eyes can’t see the date on the new one , and partly because I can always buy another “modern” one .
awesome, I love that.
Back from work, back with this.
Have always been torn between this and the Baltic equivalent
Back on the bracelet, the strap period is over.
I feel alkin have a bit more personality, is the arrow on the dials a cut out?

Found these two Tags in the bottom of a draw at my folks - the stainless one was my Dad's first "proper" watch. That just needed a battery and it was running. As for og yellow one, looked like water damage to the movement, so found an old watch on ebay that had the same ETA quartz movement, and replaced it with that. Also needed to switch over the date wheel as the ebay watch was at 6. Bit more fiddly than I'd expected (very much my first attempt at something like this, cheap tools, and tiny springs and wheels popping out all over!). Lost one screw, but luckily had the other movement's spare. Finally got it put back together and bingo, working!
Anyway thought I'd share, as i thought it may interest some of you, and they're actually really nice to wear. Also have a bit of history, as my dad used to wear the stainless one 24/7, and as you can see is battered.
Steel Tag f1 like that was my first posh watch as well. Great work in saving them.
the yellow one is rad.
Only the hour indices are cut out, if I’ve understood your question?
Only 1mm difference in size but my Citizen now feels tiny by comparison.
Yeah, loving the yellow one. Will definitely worn.
Having second thoughts about selling this one, might try another strap with less taper
Did @Sumo used to have one with the rubber bezel?
That’s what I mean, I almost thought that the indices were fauxina until I look closer.
All the way to 1000 mph.
U drive fast!
It's steel with a black paintjob, and yeah it's next to my bed.
I'll have to admit I've no idea what you use a chronograph for.... my motorbike is fast but definitely not that fast!
A tachymeter scale calculates speed in units per hour (when you measure the seconds taken to travel one unit). Could be miles, could be metres.
