Genuine Vintage Tag Heuer 1000 980.020 Watch with 2 x Service Guarantee Cards, New Glass and New Battery
Superb vintage Tag Heuer 1000 watch. As you may know the 1000 series saved Heuer in the early 80’s and is an iconic design. It has some cosmetic wear as you would expect – it is from the mid to late 1980's.
It is working well and keeps good time and date, and has had a new battery recently. I have enjoyed wearing it and it has a classic class, I’m not a Rolex guy but it has a hint of the Rolex submariner, and it looks like a serious watch.
For someone who doesn’t mind some patina and wear, and appreciates its classic look
I bought it from the original owner who lives in Norfolk, UK and it has a reasonable amount of history – two Tag Heuer services guarantees and some paperwork receipts included in sale.
The face and hands are good, however there is slight dulling to the lume on the minute hand.
It is 36mm face and 41mm width including crown full size, but not the Jumbo.
Bracelet/ strap: Original Heuer Gold/Silver Bracelet, that has some wear and play as befits the age, but still perfectly useable. The gold sections of the links are worn – on many links it is worn off at the middle of the gold part, but on the wrist it looks great and you don’t notice. It fits my wrist which is roughly 6.5" inch, and there are 2 extra links.
The security clasp sits a little high and is not flush to bracelet but still fits secure and tight.
Bezel: Much of the gold has worn off, but the insert is in good condition. The bezel is stiff at present, but does turn with a smooth click with some pressure, it probably needs a clean.
Movement: Working well, and has been serviced a few times over the years and is original signed 536.121 Swiss Quartz Movement
Crown: good order, but not sure its original as has no Heuer markings
Watch crystal: Perfect just been replaced for new mineral crystal
Case back: It has the original clear sticker on, slightly peeled on one corner. If you intend to dive I would recommend getting seals pressure tested
