The Watch

Here we have a 1980s TAG Heuer Professional Diver "Bi-Metal" Quartz 980.020D with a curvaceous 37mm gold plated/stainless steel case curving over your wrist with tapered lugs, a bevelled edge leads to a lug-to-lug length of 44.5mm and a case thickness of 9mm ensures a comfortable fit on your wrist. On the right side is a gold-plated signed crown protected by crown guards, and a rotating gold-plated bezel has a black anodised aluminium dive insert with silver numerals and markings holding a flat crystal above a matte black dial. An outer minute track surrounds tritium-coated disc and baton indexes and an inverted triangle at 12 o’clock marks the hours, at 3 o’clock a framed date window, and elegant gold-plated hands filled with tritium are complemented by a lollipop counterweighted second hand. At 12 o’clock we have the TAG Heuer motif and at 6 o’clock “Professional 200 metres” completes this vintage tool watch. On the reverse a screw-down case back with the details of the watch engraved around the edge and the TAG Heuer motif in the middle, inside a Quartz movement. The watch comes paired with its original 18mm stainless steel and gold-plated centre link TAG Heuer bracelet with a signed folding clasp and safety flip lock which will fit up to a 7.15-inch wrist.


Personal Note

The "Wolf of Wall Street" of TAG Heuers, with such a striking design that offers a ton of value for the money! The case size on the wrist is charming and comfortable, the matte dial contrasts perfectly against the yellow-gold tones, it truly is a watch that looks far more expensive than it is. Snap it up if you are interested!
