For Sale:

Tag Heuer 1000 Series, reference 844/3 Professional dive watch with automatic movement. This extremely versatile diver was Tag Heuer’s answer to the Submariner in the 80’s but unique and not easily attained like the Sub. A real tool watch that can be put through the paces and also dresses up smart (looks INCREDIBLE on an oyster bracelet). These watches are some of the very first Tag Heuer dive watches and are increasingly rare especially an automatic and in this certain of original condition.

Dial is original and shows fantastic patina on the tritium markers that really adds charm to this vintage time piece. Hands are nice, original and have faded to an even darker shade. Sapphire crystal is perfect, no scratches and quite clear.

Case has been worn gracefully and shows a lot of character. Never polished and no large dings but has lots of signs daily wear of a 30 year old watch. Original bezel certainly has character with lots of visible wear and a nice “Ghost” fading but still functions correctly and clicks and turns crisp. Crown screws down tightly as it should.

Original automatic ETA 2872 movement running strong bps and keeping time within factory spec. Service history is unknown but this is a true workhorse movement. Time setting, date, and winding all function correctly.

Watch is in very good used vintage condition! Patina and character in spades! This would be a great watch to daily wear or to one day restore. Watch has been disassembled, ultrasonic cleaned, lubed, all new gaskets, new crown tube, stem and threaded crown, pressure tested and passed! All this service work comes with receipt and was just done on 1/14/18. That being said there is no guarantee of waterproofing on vintage watches.
The original signed bracelet will fit about a 7 3/4” wrist with double lock clasp and diver extention.

Don't miss your chance to get a REAL vintage dive watch in a modern size.

All original parts that were replaced during service are available.
