    Just wanted to introduce myself. I couldn’t find the introductions thread and would not want to break protocol with my first post.

    Child of the 70s. My father had a Rolex 1675, but what I really lusted for as a teenager was a Tag Heuer. Much older now and have had my share or Rolexes, Panerais and Sinns. But what I really enjoy is picking up parts and repair watches from the bay and restoring them. My projects:
    Heuer 844
    Heuer 844/4
    Heuer 980.005
    Heuer 980.013
    Heuer 980.021
    Heuer 989.027
    Heuer 980.031

    Looking forward to learning more from you.

    I love these divers as well, you're certainly off to a great start! What's strikes me most is all have excellent lume markers.:thumbsup:

    Welcome to the forum! FYI, there actually is a thread to introduce yourself, it's pinned around the top: https://tagheuerforums.com/threads/welcome-to-the-calibre-11-tag-heuer-forums.18554/page-17

    Great collection, love your passion for these vintage divers! ::love:: Your 980.005 Prototype is very cool! :cool:

    I see you have a TAG Heuer 1000 Night Diver and also a Heuer dial that looks to be somewhat under construction.
    My Heuer 1000 Night Diver ref. 980.031L says "hello"! :)

    Haha. That’s unique. The only thing that worries me about the full lume dials is the attack of the green mold. You and Mspeedster are lucky that your dials look untouched!

    Aye the lume is still pretty strong for a circa 40 year old.
