    Thanks for the reply. I've been searching the web trying to find out specifics on quartz movements TH used with no success. I also haven't found anything regarding their movement accuracy. Does anyone know what the accuracy is, like seconds per month.

    Thanks,
    henrylr

    MOVEMENTS
    The movements used in the Heuer 2000 Series are actually quite remarkable. Many think of the 2000 as being an entry-level quartz watch, but actually the movement has far more to it than that. Both the quartz and automatic chronographs use the Dubois Depraz 2000 chronograph module. The Automatic movement (LWO 283) mates the DD2000 module to the ETA 2892 base, while the quartz movement (Calibre 185) uses a ESA 555.XXX (also known as the ETA 955.XXX) tractor.

    The Dubois Depraz 2000 module was the result of a partnership between Lemania and Dubois Depraz that began in the late 1970s. Because Heuer contributed to the funding of the project, the LWO 283 was initially exclusive to Heuer, but when Lemania sold its shares in Heuer in 1984 to TAG, the use of the movement became more widespread. Lemania sold the movement as the Lemania 283 to several high-end clients such as Audemars Piguet in their Royal Oak Offshore, Girard Perregaux (7000 Chronograph) and Baume et Mercier.

    The quartz chronograph was effectively a forerunner of the Calibre S movement, combing a quartz base with a mechanical chronograph module.

    Thanks for the reply. I have also been searching for Tag Heuer accuracy info for the quartz models, like seconds per month, and haven't found anything. Does this info exist?

    Thanks,

    I really like the look of these old Tag Heuers, but is it reasonable to buy them? I am concerned that the old quartz movements may be at the end of their life. Are these 20 -30 year old quartz Tag Heuer's a good buy. Can the movements be replaced with new ETA movements?

    Yes, I think they can be a good buy- many of the movements (e.g. ETA 955.114) can be bought for as little as US$40...you just need to make sure that you order the right one

    I found something interesting, so I would like to ask @Aquagraph a question because you are Reference number master.

    The Katayama Ukyo model seems to have some variations.
    The photo is proof, but there were the 382.513/K version and the 382.513-K version on the back cover. In the 382.513/K version, there is a mark of adding K to/1.

    I also found the original price tag. There was a description of WA 1262.BS0085 other than 382.513K here. I hope it will be the source of your blog's revision.

    Interesting! So here we have confirmation of the new code for the U/K model.... so it needs adding to this list!

    Are these your two F1's Snowy? (as we know you are hoarding them)...

    It seems odd that they would bother to give a new part number for a model that was a limited edition and was never likely to have a WA number on the backplate...

    Still, clearly that's what it is - thanks for the info Snowy, I will amend the History of the F1 Era One (again)!

    I am very happy to see the updated article:thumbsup:

    As you guessed, WA1262 was not swung on the watch as the actual part number. The Katayama Ukyo model was released in 1992, and it coincided with the renewal of the model number, so I think only the price tag was renewed.

    Hello,

    Dose anyone know what the difference between WG5211 and WG5211-PO please? I think the PO might be something to do with the dial but just not sure what it is.

    Does anyone have a newer/more comprehensive version of the codes? This one is from the 2018/2019 TH Trade Catalogue:

    I think this is where this the right thread for this question. I am looking into purchasing an older F1 chronograph. Using the catalogues I know I am looking for reference number 571.513, but I am also seeing "571.513 T", which I can't find in any catalogue. Anyone have any idea what the T would signify?

    The type of luminous paint on the dial I think.

    Hi all,

    I’m having a doubt about the product codes of the folding clasps, which are signed “Heuer” only. Could someone please confirm?…
    - FC5042 = 18 x 2mm (which I’m trending towards),
    - FC5049 = 18 x 3mm.

    Accessory question: Am I the only one feeling that the prices for these on the secondary market are pretty much all over the place? Which is strange since you can usually get them for 100-120 from any TH boutique or AD…

    EDIT: Nevermind! Eventually found back a PM where @imagwai had actually already confirmed the above :whistling: Only question left is (I guess…) whether TH heritage chronos would usually rather use the 2mm or the 3mm thick straps (?)

    Stay away from the 5042, it is pure garbage. 5049 is the way to go.

    read this thread:

    Tks. Interesting read. Is that still true that Heuer-branded 5042 and 5049 use different locking mechanisms or has the “old”, less secure one been phased out by now?

    I’m asking because in the thread referenced someone is mentioning different generations of the TH-branded 5014…

    My other issue (if I’m going with the 5049) is that WatchStrapWorld doesn’t seem to do the following strap in 3mm thick:
    https://www.watchstrapworld.com/bla...euer-autavia-models-with-20-18-mm-straps.html

    But then again I haven’t ordered anything there post-Brexit. Maybe they’re off-limits now (tax- and hassle-wise) for UE-based customers anyway…

    EDIT:
    WSW actually does list some black 20/18/3mm FC straps with red stitching (for some of the rarer re-edition models). But I would need to confirm whether those with Rallye perforation are straight-ended (enough) to fit a vintage Autavia.

    Otherwise there are also options w/o the perforation, but the former would definitely have my preference…

    All that being said, my experience so far is that their 2mm thick straps are still sturdy enough to handle a chrono (a Carrera Cal.16 in my case) and more comfortable to wear than the 3mm ones. Thus, I’m still interested in any updates re. the 5042’s locking mechanism there might be.

    I'm upping my own posts as I now want to decide between a 2mm and a 3mm strap...

    Any input on THIS open question still welcome (I guess it might just apply to all other 2mm vs 3mm clasp pairings as well):
