By popular demand, I've created a sticky dedicated to TAG Heuer's dive watches...let's see 'em!
Here are the three that I've owned
Here are mine:
980.007, 980.006L, and recently sold 980.032.
My 30 yr old 1000 series Professional, one of the very first with Tag Heuer branding on the face. Does this count?! Daily wearer, still incredibly accurate but screw-in crown threads now knackered so it doesn't come swimming with me any more.
Awesome! Thanks a lot for the sticky D.C. I can't wait to contribute with my own photos.
My 2000 "diver" (WE1110-2), which was given to me as a graduation gift from my parents. I had it serviced by TAG Heuer Customer Service and had the bezel, dial, and hands replaced to go along with an overhaul. They replaced the original round bezel with a 12-angled version which was used on later 2000 models (WK series). They kept the dial consistent though, which I like. I did have to send my watch back though as the crown recently failed! I can't complain I suppose, as the crown lasted 20 years. Hopefully I'll get it back soon!
Wish I'd kept my 980.032!
Yeah, me too, but I put the money towards a "Beloff" Montreal - so not all bad.
Here's a low light shot showing the luminescent dial:

This is going to be a great thread! Will add more pictures later, for now, here are some from my Ipod:
At last it's here! I'm so happy, this is a great watch, really can't take my eyes off of it
Quickly made a few shots, I'm gonna do some more better better quality ones tomorrow, when the light conditions are better.
Great watch, nice lume, just as it should be, xgeryx!
Hey thanks automobilia42! Actually the lume is stronger, only I could not focus the camera well enough for the first few shots.
I'm also thinking about changing to the bracelet that came with the watch, however I'm not sure if it's worth the time and it might be painful wearing it with such a hairy arm like mine How do you guys find the bracelet as a daily wear?
Just took a few photos in direct sunlight. Tried to do some close-ups too. However it's hard to play around with the right angle to eliminate reflections, as you can see that I could not manage.

I was waiting for your shots!
For me your pictures are great, I am actually making the same ones myself in the sun, haha, and I like them. I have no problem at all with the bracelets on a 1000 with my wrist and hair, however, I must add that it can depend on the bracelet itself, as there are bracelets with parts in the middle that are pushed to each other, which can stretch over the years from wearing (wearing too tight may be?) and open themselves, and there are bracelets that have middle parts that are out of one piece, with those I haven't had any problems with.
Will add more this weekend!
@automobilia42 thanks actually I too have bad experiences with metal bracelets pulling the hair or being to loose/tight, BUT not with this one.
Just out of curiosity I put the original jubilee bracelet on. It gave me quite a hard time even with my tools. But maaan, it was totally worth it. I can tell you it wears so nice and light, would even dare to say it's more comfortable than a nato strap. However got to mention I have only tried it with the original TH Bond nato.
Pictures will follow later today
Guys this jubilee bracelet is so comfortable I don't really plan on changing it for a while now. I might buy a NOS tropic diver and/or a rubber strap (Bonetto Cinturini, for me Isofrane is too expensive for being worn only occasionally.) for when we go on our vacation to Italy though.
New photos with the bracelet on.
That was something I should have added, an original (!) Tropic band is the best wearing experience, which is my girlfriends opinion who wears 1000's daily in several configurations, but she always prefers the ones on a Tropic.
