    New to the forum. I have French 844 that's in need of some TLC and not sure where to look for getting it back in shape.
    Any advice would be great.

    Thanks,
    Jack

    Hi Jack, welcome to the forum! Where are you based and what sort of TLC does it need?
    Thanks,

    Steve,
    Thanks for the reply. I'm in the Philadelphia area. I've had the watch since 1978 as a gift. I would like to have it serviced and freshened up a bit.

    It's a lovely honest piece Jack. No question in my mind-have a chat with Justin and see what he can do.
    He is Jkbenn02 on here, or his website is www.TAG1000Diver.com and you can contact him through there. His experience and knowledge of Heuer divers is vast. He's based in Kentucky.
    Be sure to post up some 'after' shots when it's done!
    Thanks,
    Steve

    Kudos to Justin for the superb service on the watch. It looks and runs great.

    Justin's service, advice and communication are top notch.

    I wouldn't hesitate to recommend his services to anyone.

    What a fantastic watch and result. Surely good to go for another 40 years! That dial is simply stunning.

    Of course I expected nothing less from Justin. :)

    Enjoy it!
