The cheap fake TAG Heuer 1000 Professional line of watches was the brand’s first venture into dive replica watches online. The line found its origins in 1979 when Jack Heuer overheard a conversation about bad-quality dive watches. It gave him the idea to enter the market with their own line of Rolex-inspired quartz diving watches that could withstand a beating. The first copy watches for sale to come from that idea were produced by French contract manufacturer G. Monnin. The best quality replica TAG Heuer ref. 844 featured an automatic movement and the ref. 8440 was its quartz counterpart. In 1980, Heuer updated the original design and moved production back to Switzerland. Now I could perfectly well make the UK fake TAG Heuer ref. 844 is a pick for this list. The reference is a favorite amongst collectors as it’s the first automatic dive watch from Swiss copy TAG Heuer.
But I would like to focus on the quartz ref. 980.006 that was introduced after the design for the ref. 8440 changed. Top Swiss fake Heuer only produced this reference in its characteristic 42mm case. Its standout features are the curved lugs and the easily recognizable crown guards. The perfect 1:1 replica TAG Heuer was initially available in steel (980.006), steel & gold plated (980.021), and gold plated (980.022). In 1981 when these luxury fake watches were introduced, they were not officially called the 1000 Professional line. That name was introduced in 1984 and is easily recognizable because the Heuer 1000 Professional high quality copy watches had “1000” printed underneath the logo. After TAG took over the brand, the “1000” moved to the lower part of the dial for most models.
Three different versions
During the production run of the 980.006, which ended in 1990, there are three different overall references. The first is the wholesale fake TAG Heuer ref. 980.006 that was in production from 1981 until 1984. There were multiple dial variations released of the first version, and Swiss made replica TAG Heuer also changed the hands from cathedral hand to Mercedes style hands for the second variation. In 1985 UK super clone Heuer introduced a new version of the watch known as the 980.006L. This updated model featured a significantly thinner case and had “1000” printed on the dial underneath the Heuer logo. The third and last version was introduced in 1986 after the brand was renamed, cheap fake TAG Heuer. The new logo was printed on the dial, and the “1000” disappeared from the dial altogether. The Swiss movement replica watches were powered by quartz ESA/ETA 536-121 and ETA 963.114 movements.
