    Wow! Automobilia42 - that's a lot of dive watches! How many TAG Heuer/Heuer dive watches do you actually own??? That's a very nice representation across the range - 1000, 2000, 3000, 6000, and Aquaracer! You even threw in a Super Professional to boot! Nice work.

    Wow @automobilia42 I'm literally gasping for air browsing thru all those diver watches haha... Very nice collection you have there. The automatic ones are 844/3 or 5?

    Thanks all, and yes, most of them are in nice condition, some of them are even new old stock.
    To be honest, I stopped counting how many I have, I don't want to know and I certainly don't want my girlfriend to know.
    Best would be if I have exactly one of each model in the series, like one 1000 980.013, one 980.029 etc.
    But I do have many doubles, still can't decide which ones to keep in my collection and which are going to leave the safe though.
    I always find a reason to keep one, so easy, as I know where and when I bought it, has the original box/papers, early series, later model, or the other one has a scratch on the pvd, etc. etc.
    Always the same circle I am going through, haha, then it ends back in the safe.
    One thing I am sure of: I am going more towards divers and leaving the Formula 1 models...may be I keep a couple of those, just for fun.

    I mostly wear my Aquaracer 500M with the rosegold bezel attached to it, instead of the rubber black one (I have two bezels with it).

    Xgeryx: 844/5

    So guys, I just feel naked :(

    Yesterday I handed in my watch for an overall check and pressure test. As I left the shop I tried to check the time on my wrist, but all I saw was my skin and hair and my St. Mary charm bracelet. Then I realized that I just left it in the shop and it felt unutterably bad.

    I just can't wait to get it back and honestly, I don't see that I'm ever part ways with this diver watch.

    Hello guys,

    A lillte off- topic in the sense it's not Tag Heuer, but still I keep in the realms of dive watches.

    What y'all think about classic 60-70s dive watch brands as Ollech & Wajs, LeJour, Nivada? Are they worth the "investment"?

    I have a series 1000 dive that somehow got moisture inside and damaged the internals, is it possible to get a replacement? At the time a local TAG dealer told me they were no longer available and it has sat in a case for several years due to this. Ta.

    Yes, you can find the movements- depends which model you have, so best to take the back off and check the movement number. Many models used the ETA 955.112 movement- and those can be bought quite cheaply http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_fro...0.XETA 955.112.TRS0&_nkw=ETA 955.112&_sacat=0

    Afternoon, got the back of the watch but cannot see any numbers that look like movement numbers on the internals, do I need to get a magnifying glass or am I looking in the wrong place?

    Post a photo of the movement, we may be able to tell by looking at it.
    Otherwise, depending on how good your eyes are, you may need a magnifying glass. My eyesight isn't what it once was, I usually take a few marco shots with a camera and view them on my PC.

    ETA 955.114, can be replaced also by the ETA 955.112 which is better in quality. See the link from Calibre11 a couple of posts above for prices and availability.
