6000 Series

The TAG Heuer 6000 was introduced in 1995 as the flagship of the TAG Heuer range. The watch also reintroduced automatic movements (the Calibre 7) into the modern TAG Heuer range, eventually extending into Chronometer models.

The 6000 is distinguished by the TAG Heuer logo at the bottom of the rotating bezel and the intricate stainless steel bracelet.
