One of the best fibreglass cased TAG Heuer F1 models you will find. Model reference 383.513.
HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?
While we have the papers they are in Japanese, and even the date stamp doesn’t make sense to us. However the movement has a production date for 1990 stamped on it, and we have found the same model in the 1990 TAG Heuer brochure.
When the original TAG Heuer F1 was launched in 1986 there were six colours and all watches came in a fibreglass case, and this is one of the original colour combinations. They sold very well, and it is not difficult finding them for sale. However the difficulty comes with finding them in good condition, and this is where this example scores well. The case is good, and the glass perfect. The dial and hands are excellent. The weak spots of the design are the bezel and strap, but on this watch the bezel is very good and the strap a genuine TAG Heuer new replacement, full length and uncut. The original, yellowed sticker still is fitted on the screw down case back! We will install a brand new battery before sending the watch out to the new owner. You will look for a long time before finding a better one.
This watch will be supplied with the original presentation boxes, Japanese papers and our Certificate of Authenticity.
