510.501 - more pics...

Still really pleased with this watch. Had it on since Friday and it hasn't missed a beat or more than a few seconds.
Before it arrived I expected it to be a lot smaller and lighter and really this buy was another gamble.
It's prompted a bit of reading into the Lemania 5100 engine inside.

Check out the 24hr dial at the top also.
I haven't opened it yet and I'm not expecting anything as beautiful or refined as a Cal 11 but it sounds like this is a true workhorse diesel.
It feels as robust as the reputation that preceeds it.
The bracelet's got what looks like a TAG shield logo (doesn't say TAG) on the clasp but comes with a spare link with an 'Heuer'only label attached.
The papers that accompany the watch are dated 1986 so that ties in with the TAG/Heuer transition period. This is the PVD version that has lasted well and even has the signed crown.
Looks and feels absolutely bullet-proof.
A nice extra was the original box and instruction set :-)

Tuesday 28th - Update: Amazing. watch has gained only around 10 seconds since Friday! AndyO...
