TAG Heuer 1000 980.013N
TAG Heuer 1000 Series Diver, 200m Mans full size 38mm case (not oversized).
First off, this diver is in superb shape, it’s the finest condition early TAG Heuer diver I’ve seen in years. Secondly, it is beautifully made. Although I’m more of a ‘Heuer’ man than a ‘TAG Heuer’ man, these early TAG models are often overlooked and I personally think they shouldn’t be. Being some of the first divers to bear the new TAG Heuer shield, they are essentially TAG branded Heuers. Some might argue with that, but I think these early models have something about them that the later TAG Heuers lost.
To some, these divers combine the best of both worlds, being vintage, closely associated with Heuer, but bearing the wider recognised more modern TAG Heuer name, which some perceive to be more sporting and prestigious. I’m not saying that’s right, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder and all that.
Whichever way you look at it, this 1000 is stunning…
