After generations of producing primarily chronographs and stopwatches, in the late 1970s, the dive watch emerged for Heuer as an entirely new product category of watches, with the success of the dive watch determining the success – or even survival – of the TAG Heuer company. As the Swiss watch industry faced existential challenges from low-cost quartz watches from Japan and difficult economic conditions, it was the dive watch that allowed Heuer (and then TAG Heuer) to survive through this difficult period.

More than surviving, TAG Heuer would achieve tremendous success in this category, positioning the company for the current century. The 18K gold automatic chronometer stood at the top of the 6000 Series collection, (the version for ladies was not COSC-certified). This gold chronometer had a unique dial featuring small lume circles marking out the hours, separated by TAG Heuer-shield markers at 12, 6 and 9 o’clock. The gold watches have an angled inner bezel, as per the chronographs, but with a minute-scale.

Like all 1990s-era TAG Heuer watches and chronographs, the 6000 Series is powered by ETA movements.

Automatic watches and the chronometer use the ETA 2892/A2, which is still used today by TAG Heuer as the Calibre 7.
