Tag Heuer 1000 Quartz GMT with Bleached Bezel
The Tag Heuer 1000 has become a truly iconic watch in Tag Heuer History. With its massive popularity many of these beautiful time peices were distributed across the world. Througout their production run, many variants were produced from automatic 844 Monnin versions, to the beautiful red dial mid-size edition, the 980.913. Until now, there was never a GMT version.
In the 1950's Rolex brought to life a modern tool watch for the now common plane traveler. The watch would allow the traveler to track multiple time zones at once with a simple glance. This watch would become one of Rolex's most iconic models, and companies everywhere wanted to create the same thing.
The Simon Watch Co Tag Heuer 1000 Modpack makes the iconic Tag 1000 into a fully functioning quartz GMT watch using a mixture of modern and custom made parts. The result is something that is hard to take your eyes off of and really makes you think "Why didn't Tag make this?"
