Edouard Heuer founded The Heuer Watch Company in 1860 in St. Imier, Switzerland. Chronographs have been the mainstay for Heuer and later TAG Heuer, featuring many models and configurations, expanding the possibilities to the full. In 1958 Jack Heuer, Edouard’s son, joined the company and in 1962 the first generation of Autavia was launched. Famously worn in the 1970s by Formula One drivers such as Derek Bell, Jacky Ickx, Emerson Fittipaldi, Clay Regazzoni and Mario Andretti, and many more. In 1999 TAG Heuer accepted a bid from LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton S.A.
Here we have a TAG Heuer Professional 2000 Chronograph 560.206 with a 38mm satin brushed stainless steel case, the 2000 series was designed by Eddie Schopfer. The curve of the case leads to a lug-to-lug length of 44mm and a case thickness of 11.5mm giving the watch an impressive wrist presence, down the right side, we have the chronograph pushers and a signed screw-down crown in the centre. A satin brushed bezel has raised blocks and a 60-minute scale with black painted numerals, a flat crystal sits above a grey dial with an outer black Tachymetre chapter ring. Applied oval indexes infilled with luminance mark the hours, at 4 o’clock a date window. The chronograph consists of three black registers: a 1/10 second, 60 seconds continuous and finally a 12-hour register each slightly raised from the dial. Elegant Mercedes hands infilled with luminance and a red chronograph second hand. At 12 o’clock an applied TAG Heuer motif at 9 o’clock 200m and at 3 o’clock “Chrono Quartz 1/10” complete this sports chronograph. On the reverse a screw-down case back with an engraved TAG Heuer shield in the centre, inside a Quartz movement. The watch comes fitted on its 20mm TAG Heuer stainless steel bracelet with a signed folding clasp.
This is a wonderful option for anyone wanting a great looking quartz chronograph. Often TAG Heuer are overlooked by collectors for a multitude of reasons, some valid, some not so much... What I can tell you is that there are so many great hidden gems from TAG Heuer that many are missing out on just because of the brand name...
