    Thanks so much for the history of my awesome watch. I was given a Heuer two tone
    Style 964 008 dive watch in 1984 as as gift. I still wear it today, and except for the usual battery changes, have never needed to service it.
    Could you please tell me what it would be valued at in today's market ?
    Thanking you for your response,

    Hi JoAnna,

    Nice watch, but not one that it worth a lot today unfortunately. Without knowing condition, whether you have boxes, etc, I would have though a maximum of $500…maybe less. Sounds like its got sentimental value well above that range.

    Hi!

    I own 2000 exclusive quartz and I cannot find info on which grade of ETA 2824 was used in 2000 exclusive automatic (wn2110).

    Thank you in advance for any info!

    Regards,

    HHmischko

    Hi HHmischko, sorry not sure on the grade, although as it is not a Chronometre, I'd say it is unlikely to be the Top spec.

    Hi David

    Fantastic article, I received from my parents a 2000 series – purchased in 1997 – from your article I expect the watch to be one of the very last of the "generation 1" -Mercedes style hands ; flat bracelet and diamond 12 marker; white face ; gold bezel; two tone strap – although I recently converted to a dark brown leather strap ; code on back WE 1122-r and very faint x80249 engraved, would like to know age of the watch and can the bezel be retensioned ?

    Best regards from South Africa

      Thanks Andy.

      Tough to be too specific on the age of the watch, other than knowing when the next gen models came out. Bezels are the first thing to go on these watches and the hardest to repair. These guys are a good source of bezels, although not sure they have what you need…a couple there look close:

    Hi!

    Regarding "grade" of ETA 2824 used in 2000, I found out it is "elabore", but shock protection is upgraded to "incabloc".

    Hi HHmischko- interesting information…how did you find this out?

    Hi!

    I found trustworthy pictures of the movement. It was easy to identificate type of balance wheel and shock protection.

    Have 2000 series Tag, white face, logo in red and green enamel affixed to top of bezel. Had full service@ $300 done in fall last yr. Looking for appraisal. Bought in 92 new.

  • Vesa

    Hello i`m Vesa from Finland, I bought a 962.206 vintage Tag heuer 2000 few months ago which is the full size model. The watch is flawless, who ever owned it before me must have worn it very rarely. My question is how many 962.206 watches were made in total. Thank you and a great website.

  • http://www.calibre11.com Calibre 11

    Hi Vesa,

    Sorry, I couldn't even begin to guess on production numbers…although I wouldn't have said it was that rare. Still, hard to find a good one!

    The Tag worn in the Die Hard 2 movie by the Colonels henchmen looks like the 2000 Chrono Professional Automatic, ref. 162.06. Found a 1990 model in mint condition with box and papers for $1100.00 Is this a good bye, and how are the reviews on this watch?
    Thanks,
    Nick

  • http://www.calibre11.com Calibre 11

    Hah, I didn't know there was a 2000 in Die Hard. Yes, I reckon that sounds like a very fair price. Not sure which version you mean- think your ref number is missing a digit..162.006?

    Hi, I just purchased a Tag Heuer Exclusive 2000 model WN111-C I wanted to know what year was this model introduced and what year was it discontinued. Thanks

    Hi David, your article has been an absolute pleasure to read! Congrats and thank you for giving me a bit more knowledge about this watch!
    My Dad was very sick a few years ago and once we got him out of hospital he gave me his Tag Heuer 2000 (962.206F) as a thank you to me for looking after him, I wear it every day. (Not quite as traumatic as Butch's watch story in Pulp Fiction but it means a lot to me!)
    I know it is supposed to have been made between 1993-1996, it has a mono-chrome badge underneath a diamond luminous marker at '12', the date at '3' and luminous circles at '6' & '9'. Above the '6' it reads "2000, professional, 200 meters". The link strap, casing, (6 point) bezel and face are all in stainless steal and I've never seen one like this before!? Are you able to tell me what specific year this watch is and is it one of the good ones!? I won't be selling it, but will be passing it on to my son (and now little man…this watch is yours!) haha, so I am just trying to get as much information as I can on it. I have a Rolex submariner, an Omega seamaster and a Sector 260AV, but this is the watch that means something! Any info greatly received! Patrick.

  • http://www.calibre11.com Calibre 11

    Thanks Patrick- I was worried that this was a Butch-style story, but sounds like a cleaner version…

    Take a look at the Catalogs page: http://www.calibre11.com/tag-heuer-catalogues/

    The answer will be there…let us know which one you have. If you can't find it, send me a photo: info@calibre11.com

    • Patrick

      David, I think you've helped me find it!
      Could it be as old as 1987/88? The same model 962.206 appears in the 1987/88 catalogue on the scanned pages p57 & p58. My model has an 'F' on its number (962.206F) which I don't know what it stands for etc? Were the 80's watches made differently to the 90's ones? I know this is a basic enough model but is it well made!? Thanks a million for your help David. P.

    Hi David,
    I recently sent my WE 1122/R (SN S41379) in for maintenance. I thought the estimate kind of high at $370 US$, but I’ve no idea of the value of this watch. Can you help guide me?
    I’ve had it for years, and have had it regular maintained (usually a bezel or crystal replacement).
    Normally I’d think if the repair costs are over 60% of the value of the watch, I’d just replace the watch. However, looking at the current TAG series of watches today, the replacement value is probably a lot higher than I’d have thought.

    Thanks,
    Peter

  • http://www.calibre11.com Calibre 11

    Not sure Peter- try eBay for values. It may not make sense from a purely economic point of view, but I have a similar watch (a TAG Heuer 4000) that I would be willing to pay 100% of the value to get it serviced because of the sentimental value

    dc

  • Peter Sikes

    Hi David,

    In the end, I felt the same way, and chose to have it completely refurbished. I didn’t like the feeling of not having it on my wrist.
    Our kids prefer to use their cell phones, as timepieces today. Too bad, because one of my sons will end up with this piece some day.

    Thanks for the quick reply, and I loved this article.

    Best,
    Peter

    A question about the bezel. I Just purchased a ref 169.806. The bezel is bi-directional on it. Is that typical for that model? The model is the similar to the super 2000 just no gold accents. Perhaps the bezel was replaced? The jewelry store owner informed me that on this ref. the bezel is bidirectional typically. Thanks!

    • http://www.calibre11.com Calibre 11

      Hi Daniel, no it should be unidirectional. You can show the store owner pages 35 and 36 of the 1991 catalogue!

      • Daniel

        Thanks for the clarification! I bought a different watch from a dealer with the correct bezel and all original. There was a piece missing inside the bezel that caused it to not to ratchet correctly.
