This Tag Heuer is really one thing particular… properly a minimum of to me. At 30 Years of age, it’s considerably older than me, dated from across the 1990’s and was a present from my Dad once I turned 16. It was my first “correct” watch being “Swiss Made” a marked signal of high quality.
The dial is the actual star of the present with a uncommon “Moon mud” face that’s made up of blue and gold specs and gold Mercedes type fingers, within the centre of which proudly sits the title “Tag Heuer” in a rarer gold paint in comparison with the commonest crimson, white and inexperienced rendition. It really is one thing beautiful. This dial is flanked by the bezel of steely blue color atop which gold painted numbers sit gently worn by years of devoted service. The diameter of the case is 33mm. Positively microscopic. A few of you would possibly even gasp at this dimension too used to your 40mm+ minimal plus dimension watches. Others can be shocked to find this was a dive watch!
I say nonsense! This dimension to me is what makes this watch so particular and distinctive. It’s small dimension, Jubilee bracelet and slender case width provides an nearly “refined” class to this watch. Reworking it from one thing usually “tooly” to dare I say nearly dressy.
This watch while not horologically important in any regards, I imply some could even be aghast by the mere point out of Quartz, to me this watch transcends all of that. To me it’s my first correct Swiss Made watch gifted to me by my Dad, beginning me on this journey growing a love and keenness for watches.
