A few years ago, before iconic re-edition models like the Monaco and Carerra, the TAG Heuer SEL was one of the company's mainstream models. Following the basic 1000 series, and more sport-looking models like 2000, the Sport Elegant emerged as one the company's models that successfully carried them into the new millennium.
Today's offering showcases this full featured Certified Pre-Owned TAG Heuer SEL series divers watch with robust original automatic movement.
Unlike the quartz versions of most TAG's from the period, this more desirable mechanical example is powered by the very well made ETA 2892-A2 based movement with gilded rotor.
It showcases the timeless art of traditional watchmaking and is a workhorse movement used widely by upper echelon makers including Union Glashütte, IWC, Breitling, Tudor, Omega, Girard Perregaux, and Franck Muller, including some high-end models with large price tags.
It measures 36mm with the guards and 38mm with the screw down crown. It's a great watch for a man who doesn't have a large wrist.
It is 100% original and presents in gorgeous condition - about a 9.7 out of 10. The untouched dial, sapphire crystal, and case all present as mint.
It has just been fully overhauled by a Master Watchmaker (a $495 value). The movement is very clean. Photos of the inside available upon request.
For the finishing touch we have equipped it with a brand new leather strap making it ready for immediate enjoyment.
Included with the purchase is a one-year C.O.T. warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a new timing certificate attesting to its performance.
