In 1985 TAG purchased majority shares of Heuer and the brand then became TAG Heuer, regardless of your opinion on that business move one thing that cannot be argued is how damn cool this watch is! It's a unique one as the 844/2 was being manufactured during this transitional time of Heuer, so models post 1985 will have TAG Heuer on the dial, clasp and box! Therefore this one is pre 1985 as Heuer is the only thing stated.
The large lume plots on the dial have turned evenly fluffy and a beautiful eggshell colour that matches perfectly with the hands, the overall condition is great for a used vintage watch and there is minimal stretch on the original jubilee bracelet. Now sure, design ques have certainly been borrowed from the Rolex Submariner, but in a 42mm case that has a shape reminiscent of a Seiko Turtle (I use this as reference as I suspect most of you have tried a Turtle on) means it couldn't be further away from a Rolex Submariner. Provided is aslo a Colareb strap with a Heuer buckle, you'll be hard stretched to not find a combination you don't like for this watch! My personal preference is the Jubilee!
So don't hesitate on this one, pick it up and enjoy yourself a beautiful vintage Heuer at an unique time for the brand! Also at a price that is less than a lot of TAG Heuer's modern day offerings, what's not to like?!
TAG Heuer certainly made some interesting watches during the 90s, this is one of them! Limited edition with famous signatures on the back, link style bracelet with a TAG Heuer Professional dial. Unique Chronograph with central minutes, all these add to a funky watch!
Points of Mention
This watch is sold with its box and paperwork, the watch is a pre-owned watch therefore signs of wear and age will be seen. The inner leather case has stickers on from the original owner. The watch is currently working and all functions working, the battery was replaced late 2018.
TAG Heuer... A brand I hear mixed review of regularly! I really do believe, also hope, that the watch community will remove themselves of the snobbery blocking them from a perfectly good Swiss brand with some serious history which puts most of the big names to shame! Remember... Buy what you love!
This beautiful watch features a "Sun-ray blue triple stepped dial" which allows for the most interesting of colours when in different lighting environments, when on the wrist I found myself just moving it around to see what different colours and reflections happened. The watch is named Hudson after an English Sea Explorer and Navigator during the early 17th century, his name was Henry Hudson.
The watch features a perfectly proportioned 37mm case with, the now iconic, bronze on the crown which Farer do for all their watches. Powered by the hand wound ETA 7001 which allows for the slim case but also a lovely movement to look at under the sapphire crystal caseback. It is also limited to only 100 and this is number 5, a very early edition!
Points of Mention
This watch does have an engraving on the caseback, it has been blanked for the privacy of the owner, but image with it can be provided on request. The watch comes with it's full box and papers and the watch is in great condition right down to the strap being like new.
I am a HUGE fan of this style of watch, the cushion case wears perfectly on the wrist and sits very low. I love the shade of blue but the extra pops of colour don't do it for me, but I know many people absolutely love it and once on wrist it really doesn't bother me at all. I have been a fan of what Farer have been doing and this is the first one I've had the chance to have on wrist for a full day, I am very impressed and I have no doubt the new owner will be too.
This is easily the most striking vintage Tudor Oyster I have seen to date, not just sold but seen in person! You have a beautiful honey comb dial, chicken leg lugs, gold indices and hands and an awesome engraving on the back dating this piece to 1959! The engraving says "C.CRAPP FROM BOYS OF NU-WAY 1959" which is super cool in my opinion! Love these kind of things!
How damn cool is this lovely Stowa Convertible travel clock / pocket watch! It is powered by a manual wound movement and can be rested on it's extended standard at the back, the whole case is a gold-tone plate in incredible condition! The fact this has survived with it's original box and Stowa tag is incredible too! All protected by a lovely leather case that is also in great condition, I feel as if this watch hasn't seen the light an awful amount of times!
Now what we have here is a VERY interesting offering from Girard Perregaux and one you probably not see again! This is the Ref. 7100 Sea Hawk with the beautiful white dial and Pepsi Style, with Gold Numerals, Sapphire Bezel! This watch is running the GP Caliber 215 which, from my research, the 7100 only used for the first 500 models made before they switched to the ETA 2892. This is a true dive watch with 500M of Water Resistance and yet is housed in a case that is 10mm thick, the engineering that has gone into this watch is beyond insane! It is also believed that approximately 2700 models were made in the reference 7100 & 7300 and that covers different variations within the references, such as dial colours and bezels etc! So of this white dial we can only imagine how many are actually out there!
But to add to all that above we also have the original box that the watch was sold in, it is a super funky, heavy and unusual case! It even comes with the outer box signed Girard-Perregaux, what more can you ask for? The outerbox and inner case do have signs of wear and some marks of damage, but functional and such a cool touch! The watch is paired on a custom leather strap that matches the watch perfectly, it currently only has 1 hole that will fit a 7 1/4 inch wrist, so once you get this watch you can go and get another hole punched in to fit you perfectly and enjoy this watch on this strap! Don't wait on this one because I don't think you'll see another come up, especially in condition like this!
This very well designed Certina has it's core rooted in their history. In 1960 Certina equipped some of their watches for the first time with the DS Concept, that watch accompanied the climbers of the first successful decent of Dhaulagiri in the Himalayas. That is actually the mountain you see on the caseback of this watch, another nice touch! One the dial you have a two-tone white and rose gold dial, bold rose gold sword hands with contrast against the two tones of the dial perfectly making for easily legible reading.
This is all being powered by the infamous Powermatic 80 which is an automatic movement boasting an impressive 80 hour power reserve! When you consider how incredible this full package is and then you see the price, it really is a no-brainer!
Points of Mention
This watch was purchased in May 2017 and was part of a large collection in which it was rotated regularly, the watch does bare some minor signs of wear but nothing major at all. Overall I would say good condition. The watch comes with it's full box, paper and receipt, even the handtags are included.
This watch celebrates part of Certina's history and they celebrated it in good taste, they didn't plaster the front with images or words referring to the feat... They put a very nicely decorated photo of the mountain on the caseback, well played Certina!
I have never seen an Orient just like this! Seriously amazing and beautiful on wrist, whilst definitely large the bright colours really make it stand out in a crowd of watches! The watch has an inner rotating bezel which has different colours for each section, they are actually to resemble the best colours visible at the stated depths! Gold hands and indices which work so well in the light. This whole watch is amazing and it is paired on a beautiful blue suede strap! Pick it up for an absolute bargain and enjoy.
