TAG HEUER 1000 Pro 980.033 in Brass

This is something you don't see everyday, a Tag heuer in Brass.This is a custom build Tag by http://www.TAG1000Diver.com. The formerly chrome plated case has been refinished with correct polished sides and brushed top surfaces just like the 984.013 Wolf of Wall Street models. 

The watch was professionally restored and the case fully serviced. Reliable, one of a kind, and fully functional. This watch should develop a patina to the brass surface, similar to Bronze watches. It can also be easily polished to a gold-like shine with a polishing cloth, which I think I prefer the gold look.


Case size: 38mm without crown (~40mm with crown and crown guards) It has a New Swiss ETA movement!
A New Swiss Renata battery which should be good for two years or more. 
The crystal is new and It has been substantially upgraded to a sapphire crystal. The bezel is orginal and in good condition and the bezel insert is new (one of TAG 1000's custom GMT inserts). It came with a new blue NATO strap. I'm going to leave it for now. All seals (case back, crown, and crystal gasket) were replaced and the watch was pressure tested to 30 meters afterwards (which it passed). It has a new screw down Tag gold crown and tube. After seeing foggys Bronze watches I started looking around but I guess I fell in love with this one and it kind fits the void.

This is my fifth watch so far this year and I am on the hunt for one more, so we will see. As always thanks for looking, and like what you own and wear watch you like Lords

That is really nice. I'm a dunce - I saw a similar model to that one (all black) in a used clothing store in Long Island a couple years ago; it wasn't in as good a shape. They only wanted like $100 ... and I didn't buy it.

A fool, a fool, I met a fool, and I met him in the mirror. Glad you're smarter, because that's a nice piece and it's gonna be collectable forever. I really mean that - the moment, if ever, that you decide to unleash that (new movement or not) the collectors will be more than happy to meet you.
I would rather be seen wearing an Invicta than a Hublot - at least I can explain away the Invicta.

Super nice ! I like brass more than bronze in most cases. YMMV

I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.
