    Model identification BT

    This was the very first nice watch that I purchased over 22 years ago with my first real paycheck out of University. Seriously, I thot this was the pinnacle of watches back the so dont laff.

    Been sitting in a drawer for 5 years almost. Had the movement replace once I think.

    Question. What model is it? And what movement does it need? I will try to attempt the swap myself.
    Put in a new battery the other day and she won't respond. So assuming the movement is dead.

    On the baseplate is the movement ID from ETA: 955.114

    Check the battery before you swap the movement. Often 'new' batteries aren't. And corroded connections can lower voltage to make it look like the movement is bad.

    This is a 2000, the precursor to the Aquaracer. From the movement datestamp, this movement went into TAG inventory in February of 1989.

    Looks to be a good example watch!

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!
