Heuer 272.006-1 Chronograph / 2000 Series

Heuer 272.006-1 Chronograph / 2000 Series c1985. NOS

Yet another grey dialed 2000 series here, this a rather stunning NOS example of the quartz+mechanical movement. Regular readers will know that I’m a big fan of these 2000 series with the triangular hour markers, they look fantastic, plus the size and balance is spot on. Together with the factory blasted case, it looks the business.

They are stunning in the flesh, with the silver subdials with concentric grooved circles balanced against the plain grey dial.  I’ve said it before about these early 2000 designs, they have a military/tool-ness to them, and the fluted pushes hints back to the early Heuers. Again, this features the ‘super-quartz’ Calibre. 185 movement – it uses the Dubois Depraz 2000 chronograph module mated with a quartz engine.

This model can be seen here in the 1984 catalogue on OTD. In fact, it is listed as simply 272.006. The ‘-1’ were added to the very last models in ’84 & ’85. Heuer usually did this when there was a movement change, or change from unsigned elements to signed elements (like the crown and caseback). The movement is the same as earlier models, so I can only presume that there was a minor change.

  2. Io ne posseggo un modello dal 1984 che mi è’stato regalato da una mia ex ragazza nonostante gli anni passati, ogni volta che lo indosso lo ammiro con piacere per la sua linea elegante,sportiva.

  3. Hi I have been a fan of your fine watches and have in fact bought similar ones that I liked from your collection. This particular Heuer 972 006 is being offered to me but my question is in its back case, it has all the standard Heuer markings except that this one does not have the model number engraved? Is that common?

    • I have heard of this before. Either it was an oversight, or a replacement at service due to a case back being scratched. I wouldn’t worry about it.

  4. Does anyone happen to know the difference between the models with the triangular marker on the rotating bezel (at the “0” position, versus the ones with the smaller round dot there? I have one that is a Tag Heuer. Based on catalogs, I am wondering if it was possibly from the cross over year (85?).

  5. I have an opportunity to purchase one of these, Heuer 274.006. Seller states it has a Swiss V8 movement. The bezel insert is black and appears to be a replacement. Is the movement correct or a replacement and how difficult would it be to obtain the correct bezel insert?

    • Not come across ‘Swiss v8’ before, and finding an insert would be difficult – 2nd hand market only.
