    Georges Monnin 844 ?

    Ok, I'll chip in.....the hands do look odd, but they also kind of fit the Tag/Zodiac funky hands vibe of the late 80's early 90's. I'd like to see what's inside...

    I think it's a really cool watch. I would probably replace the hands with a set from a Tag, I'd they prove not original.

    I like the look of it. If it were mine I'd keep the hands.

    What I recall,Monnin made the first Heuer divers models. Upon success they have been continued to be manufactured and it's said that it was the watch that rescued Heuer from bankrupting.

    I have no idea if the hands are original or not, but they are cool looking.

    As for the bracelet you may want to check the codes and markings at the inner side of the buckle and the end -pieces. Post pictures I am sure someone with knowledge would chime in.

    Good one,as you might know already ETA 2824 is a reliable work horse movement. It also responds well to self adjustments through that micro adjustor on balance cock. ETA 2824 was manufactured in early '80s and onwards.Get it serviced and wear it with joy. I am sure the size is not below 38mm so would be fine.

    By the way those end-links don't look like Rolex end-links.

    yes a like the watch and seems a bit interesting considering the history about the Heuer Monnin 844. I have not seen many watches that have the Georges Monnin logo it seems to be a rare find :)

    Thank you for the correction. Now I see it has been manufactured first in 1972.
