Anyone Know more about the history of the 520.206R

Postby Craigbythesea » July 9th 2017, 9:15am

I have just picked up this Tag Heuer 2000 Professional Cronongraph 570.206R. Is says it is water resistant to 200m. However with the Tachymeter and leather strap it looks more like a drivers watch. I have read it comes from the early 90's and I have seen them on metal bracelets. I just thought it was more interesting than later Tag 2000.

You can see some pictures on this Pinterest link. https://uk.pinterest.com/craigparkermai ... r-520206r/

So the question is, is this a divers watch or a drivers watch? Is it more interesting than later models? Certainly got my friends talking

Well, with the bezel and the WR rating, it could be called a diver's watch, although with the tachymeter scale and chrono functions it would probably be safer to call it a sports watch. Being as old as it is, I wouldn't take it in the water without having a watchmaker check the seals and Sew Fourth.

Good advice. Not sure I would even wear it in the shower.

that is good, showers and watch seals do not mix well. As john mentioned, they are considered a sports watch and a good one at that when they came out. There were several discussions about them at forums over the years.

I would go to this very informative website and write to the editor there:

https://www.calibre11.com/

It's the most throughout and complete site about the history of both Tag Heuer and Heuer you will find.

That being written: I have never heard of or seen that model number before as part of the Tag Heuer line. A Google search for it also brought up nothing.

Obviously not a diver , just an all around chronograph you could get wet if needed, back in the day...
