    Hi All, just trying to find the equivalent to this movement for an old Heuer 1000 dive watch. I assume its not available anymore. Is the ETA 955.114 OK to use?

    Do you have the broken 964.114? Can you measure the movement? I can't find any data about that movement, except it was the predecessor of 955.114 in Heuer 1000 series, with the difference that the latter was used in thinner cases, meaning 955.114 is thinner. Here is the specs for the 955.114 and the newer 955.112, which are exchangeable:
    Data
    11.5''', Dm= 25.6mm
    H= 2.5mm
    If these Dm is the same but the height is different, there is a good chance you can use it, even though the new movement is thinner. The movement holder (plastic ring) might hold it sturdy in the case. The movements are $30, so I would just try it. The question has been asked many times on the net and nobody seems to know the answer.

    Hi Peter, I'm not sure if the 955.114 is a direct swap-I believe it was used in the later TAG models, (N case designation) whereas the 964 was used in the pre-TAG Heuer 'L' version, which I assume yours is. For a cheap and cheerful replacement, look up a ETA/ESA 450.111.They aren't as robust or well made as the originals (and unlikely to be serviceable if it breaks) but will be a direct replacement for you.

    Best,
    Steve
