Heuer Diver 982.106 Full Lume Pewter PVD

with 16 comments

Heuer Diver Professional, 200m, Full lume dial, Pewter PVD, jumbo oversized 42mm case. NOS

I’ve been lucky enough to recently acquire this NOS example of this beautiful Heuer diver. Apart from a few minuscule storage marks on the bracelet etc, it’s flawless, a real stunner. In all my time collecting I’ve never seen another example anywhere, for sale or not, so it is very special to get a NOS example.

The full phosphorescent dial is a marvel, and has a beautiful subtle green glow, even in daylight. This is very difficult to capture on camera, but anyone who has handled a full lume Heuer will understand the beauty of these dials.

I love the matt pewter PVD finish. Apart from the fact that it matches my Mac, it gives the watch a real air of being a ‘tool’ diver, with a military-esk quality. Just like the dial, this is difficult to capture on camera. What is appealing is that in certain light it appears quite pale, other times more battleship grey, it really is a joy to wear.
