Heuer Diver 982.013, Pewter PVD case.,1983. 200m Quartz ETA 526.121

This rarely seen all grey 38mm cased Heuer diver is very cool. This dial is a real stunner, a refreshing break from the normal black or full lume Heuer divers of the time. The case is pewter PVD, together with the dial, it has a very tool watch feel to it, almost military-esk. The bracelet is great, but is also looks great on a NATO, but if that isn’t your thing, even better on a vintage tropic strap, which I believe was an option when it was new. Shown in the Heuer 1983 catalogue (see below).

This example is an early version, as the case back is plain – the later versions of around 1985 had the more elaborate case backs with the full Heuer shield stamped into it. It has a wonderful wearing to the PVD, it is still there, but worn evenly, giving the case a lovely lustre. The dial is remarkable too..  it’s absolutely mint. It really does look great on the wrist, a real tool ‘no nonsense, no fuss’ all cool diver.

    • Hi Ken,
      Unfortunately there isn’t a general parts place for these old Heuers. Your best bet is keep a look out on watch forums and on online auction sites.

  2. I have this same watch, too. Mine is complete, although the band is showing the mileage. I bought it new, maybe in 1986-87.
