Good condition but has clearly been used during its life, this is a highly original watch that has been just been fully serviced. It has a brand new sapphire hat crystal, all new gaskets, seals and has been water tested. It features all original parts in good condition. Dial has mild damage. I have highlighted this is the final picture in the listing. You can see slight discoloration directly above and below the hand stack hole these only show up at certain angles but I want to make sure it is clear to potential buyers. There are also two small scratches pointing towards the 5 o'clock position about a millimeter in length. Watch has the original polish but has many scratches and a few dents and deep scratches. These are most prominent in the bottom right of the watch and is highlighted in the photos. Bezel moves smoothly and lines up correctly. All lume is functional and factory original. There are scratches on the bezel insert as well in the lower right of the watch. The second hand hits directly on the markers. If you have any questions about this item, please feel free to send me a message.

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.
