Ok heres the chance to own a piece of Rare and i mean "Rare" TAG Diving History.
Up for grabs is my own personal TAG 1000M Superprofessional Auto 25 jewel Divers watch in the elusive Gold Toned Bezel.This watch is NOS and brand new condition from TAG Switzerland.Only the Original Bracelet remains in used condition.
This watch has a story and is actually unique in the way it came to be.(Please read fully to appreciate whats up for grabs Here!!!)
I bought this watch 2nd hand over 2yrs ago as i had always wanted this particular divers watch to add to my ever growing watch collection after seeing it New in the early 90,s in Northern Goldsmiths for well over £2000.I could never afford that much so settled on a clean but used one privately.
Once i attained the watch it was sent to LVMH (TAG UK) In Manchester for a full service,reseal,pressure test and full clean at a cost of £157,I received the watch back after 6 weeks and although completely serviced the chapter ring was still dirty and it was returned back to LVMH for inspection and reclean as i wanted my moneys worth on my pride and joy.
Weeks later i was contacted by LVMH with bad news that during the reclean the Crystal Retaining ring was snapped trying to release the crystal to enter the watch?Plus this was a deleted part and no longer available.
I received a verbal apology and letter from LVMH saying only TAG Switzerland had a few full cases and movements left in their inventory of this particular watch and due to their negligence i was to receive as an apology a Brand New Cased NOS watch from them.
So this is your chance to own a long deleted and brand New TAG 1000M.ETA 2892 25 JEWEL Auto movement watch.
I know this is a one off Watch and ultra rare chance to own this gorgeous piece in New Condition.All markings and Serial Numbers are shown in my pictures and the backcase still has the new sticker as supplied by TAG Switzerland also shown in my pictures.
The watch comes with the Original Leather Dive Kit with Removal Tool and 2 Rubber straps as well as the Divers extension Strap,Dive Table,instruction Manual,and 4 new Springbars unopened.(This kit was an optional Extra im including)
I have had the watch valued at a TAG Specialist dealer in Harrogate UK who conservatively rate the watches value at £1200-£1300 UK due to its rareity and condition as new.
Im looking to trade at the value of £1000 for a mint Seiko MM or a mint Seiko MM Darth Tuna with any cash value up to £1000 difference to me.
PM or Email me with any offers and i will reply asap.Neilo.
