Personal Note

The dial is without question the star of the show for this 1990s TAG Heuer 1500 Series, reference 959.706G! It is cased in 40mm putting it at the larger side of these models for the period, so perfect for a lot of collectors today who find these models typically too small. I would not hesitate to add this to your collection if you've been considering these fun 1990s/2000s TAG Heuers!
