Tag Heuer 1000 Professional – ‘HEUER’ Transitional Model
The 1000 Series of dive watches from Heuer and TAG Heuer played a critical role in the history of the company. Developed at a time when Swiss mechanical chronographs faced industrial and economic challenges, and with Heuer having little background in this category of timepieces, these relatively inexpensive dive watches quickly met with enormous success.
The 1000 Series of dive watches (and its progeny) served as a bridge between the late 1970s, when the market for Swiss mechanical chronographs faced existential challenges, and the mid-1990s, when TAG Heuer would begin to reintroduce mechanical chronographs from its golden age.
