Tag Heuer 1000 980.613 Calibre 5 Custom

  • 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. 


    This is a very special custom that has been several months in the making. Starting with a thick case from a Heuer 980.013, the watch features a mint Tag Heuer blue gloss professional dial, a nicely worn factory original blue bezel insert, and NOS Heuer 1000 hands. To top this build off, at the heart of the watch lays the Tag Heuer Calibre 5 (ETA 2824-2). The watch comes with two bands, a Tag Heuer 18mm Jubilee and a Hodinkee goat leather strap.
