It’s puzzling when you can’t find out more about a watch right Peter?! 😯

At first I thought I had found the watch, it was more of a classic silver
dial I saw. And it had a silver bezel, but the concentric circles were a
bit different honestly. ..They did not take up the entire dial as the one
you are showing does. Also the inner bezel ring is stainless, not black
as it is on the one you are looking at.

Oh, and can’t say as to the engravings on the case-back, but the
number on this one below is CAF7011.FT8011.

It’s a real mystery it seems Peter. But hopefully someone here, or
out there can lend a helping hand. Or some insight.

The one being offered to you for sale is likely a fake.

Maybe it is an older model and they changed the caseback, but the quality of the caseback in your photo looks far from what TAG Heuer normally make (even my 1992 TAG looks better that the one you posted).

From Chrono24 here is what the back of that watch should look like, notice the 3D look of the helmet and the way the texts / information is arranged:

Watch Analog watch Silver Clock Material property


Here is the listing on Chrono24 so you can compare the images: TAG Heuer Aqua Racer Calibre S Chronograph CAF7010 Divers... for $810 for sale from a Seller on Chrono24

You are very welcome, and yes, it looks like FBPB broke the bad news. 😄
A lot of times when you, or we can't find anything on a watch, it usually
means one of two things. ..Either it is extremely rare, and limited. Or it
is in fact a fake unfortunately. With the latter often being the much more
common of the two possibilities. 🙁

The silver lining, or lemonade you made out of these lemons, is the fact
that you had the truth revealed before you bought the watch. (y)

So in reality, things worked out Peter ! 🙂
