TAG Heuer 844/5 Auto Diver

with 15 comments

TAG Heuer 844/5 1000 Series Diver. 200m. Automatic ETA 2872. c1985-90. Oversized 42mm case.

This model was one of first released under the TAG Heuer name in 1985 just after TAG acquired Heuer. It is essentially a Heuer 844 with an updated logo. This was the last of the famous 844 automatic series of models, and therefore the only TAG Heuer signed version. It was classed as being in the 1000 series, a numbering system that TAG Heuer inherited from Heuer. TH continued to use this system, with the 1500, 2000 etc series.

It’s a classic icon of the dive watch world, it is wonderfully proportioned with it’s 42mm case, 44 including the crown. It’s clean design allows it to sport different look, from the standard steel bracelet to the most colourful of NATO straps, it just look cool. It has that bulletproof’ go anywhere, do anything’ feel to it, driven by the tough and high performing 25 jewel ETA 2872. The only thing cooler is it’s earlier Heuer brothers.
