TAG HEUER 1000 980.026L

  • Significance: 

    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.
