Very rare Heuer diver

The Ref. 980.004 / 1

This is the rare Heuer ref. 980.004/1. With original full length bracelet. This bracelet was not signed on clasp. A large 40mm rarely seen Heuer.

It's from the 1980's and have the new slimmer ETA 955.114 movement. The same movement used in the updated TagHeuer 1000 diver series with a N behind the referance number.
I like the black Date/Day window, that's a nice detail.

It was shown in the 1982 Heuer diver watch catalogue. My watch moved to a new owner as I found the design a little to simple.
German watchmaker Sinn made their own version with an automtic movement.

There is also a Scubapro quartz version of this watch. Very nice, with triangles at 12 9 and 6. Date only, like the Sinn. Very very limited edition.
