    The Kirium Club

    No longer in production, I consider the Kirium a TAG Heuer icon. It absolutely has the TAG Heuer spirit of the 90s, elevating the company's "Professional 200m Divers" to a new era in design.

    It was the very first TAG HEUER that caught my attention to the brand back in the 90s, and it happened to be the model that I added last to my collection. (Last Week )

    If you own a Kirium, or simply enjoy this iconic model, welcome to the new Watchuseek's Official TAG HEUER KIRIUM CLUB

    Love this model, though would hate to have to pay for a new movement if required as these are no cheap quartz.

    I made a quite extensive research before buying my Kirium F1, and I didn't find a single owner who had a this movement going bad. And, if it ever occurs, it is still the same movement used by TAG Heuer on their Aquaracer digital version, and many other watch brands. So it should not be any hard to source this movement... I love the way the digital is so discrete and "floating" on it.

    Re: The Kirium Club

    Have the same F1. Love it and wore it extensively when first purchased (pre owned, but wore/performed like new). Still gets plenty of wrist time. Would love to someday acquire an auto chrono, or the WL5111 auto chronometer. Would also love to try out the original rubber strap on my F1, seems to give it a whole new look.
    Thanks for starting this thread!

    Re: The Kirium Club

    Sometimes changing a bracelet / band my make you feel like you're wearing a whole new watch... I really like the Kirium range. The F1 version is quite something !

    Re: The Kirium Club

    After over a week owning and wearing the Kirium, my first impressions and feelings are: This is a timeless design. It is chunky and delicate at the same time. After sizing the bracelet to my wrist, it feels absolutely wonderful. I am just in love with it.

    Re: The Kirium Club

    You know, it's not easy adjusting those bands. Since there are no micro adjustment holes on the clasp one is left to try to find half links ( I believe they're 8mm while the full link is 10mm ). I have a 7 in. wrist and lucked out with the F1, which had one half link, and is appreciably thicker in height, but have had to order 3 half links for each of my regular quartz models to make them fit properly! Don't know why watch companies manufacture without the micro/clasp option.

    Re: The Kirium Club

    My only Kirium is the F1 version, and I was able to make it fit nicely by using one half-link on the bracelet. You mentioned the watch's thickness.. I do love the way it wears bold on the wrist, without being a huge watch.

    Ahh.. the Kirium. Like enrico, it was the first watch that made me take notice of TH. Back then, I couldn't afford one. Now, I have collected 5 Kirium watches. Love the chronographs and the F1. Will share some photos in this thread later. :)

    Re: The Kirium Club

    Please do !!

    I ALMOST bought the Kirium Chronometer back 12 years ago, but I saw the 2000 Classic automatic, and I felt it was a more "eternal design". And I was right. If I had only one TAG, that would have been it, as it was for so many years (until I had the expensive idea of joining this forum!)

    But now that I do have a modest collection, a Kirium could not have been left out for sure :)
