Good condition, this is a highly original watch that has been serviced at some point in its life as marked in the case back. It features many original parts in mint condition with exception of a new crown, crown tube, mineral crystal and gaskets supplied by JKBenn02. Crown and crown tube have new gaskets installed as well. When setting date and time, crown occasionally rubs on the inside guards, this does not harm any functionality of the watch in any way. Watch has a original finish and appears to be unpolished during its life. Bezel is firm and locks into place and lines up correctly. Has been fully relumed by theAlchemistRelumer with period correct color. Bezel plot is functional but fades faster than the dial and hand lume.
There are spots of wear on the dial that look like the matte finish has been rubbed off slightly, the most noticable points are near the 3 o'clock and the 6 o'clock, and several faint markings towards the 10 and 11 o'clock. I have tried to get a picture of these points in the listing and want to make sure the buyer is aware of these. The dial has been cleaned thoroughly so they not stains, they are wear points.
The second hand hits directly on the markers and hand alignment is correct. If you have any questions about this item, please feel free to send me a message.
Heuer 1000 980.006L with "theLeatherStrap" Rallye
The Tag Heuer 1000 was in a way, the watch that saved Heuer. In the 1970's (prior to the conception of Tag Heuer) Heuer was a mechanical watch and stop watch company. When the quartz revolution began and revolutionized the accuracy of watches, Heuer lost a lot of business to the competition, to fix this issue Heuer created the Series 1000. It was the raging success that they needed and the watch was produced for many years after its initial release . Many variants were released over the 1000's production run, everything from mechanical versions to colored versions.
