The Reference

There are some watch designs that are so iconic that they are immediately evocative of an era and place in time. The Tag Heuer S/EL is one of those designs. That fact is even more impressive given that the S/EL is most likely the first watch developed by the newly formed TAG Heuer company after the rocky Piaget/Lemania years. Success came quickly for the S/EL and with it a renewed interest and commitment to the TAG Heuer brand as a whole throughout the late 80s and into the late 90s. Unfortunately, its ubiquity throughout the 90s is one of the reasons why collectors have strayed away from the S/EL but we think it’s time that the watch of Jerry Maguire is ready to make its entrance back into popularity as full ironic cool.

The Case and Bracelet

The 36mm stainless steel and gold plated case and bracelet are in good condition. The unique integrated lugs and Y bracelet links give the watch its distinctive looks. Additional features include a unidirectional bezel, signed screw down crown and caseback, and sapphire crystal. The bracelet will fit up to a 7.5-inch wrist.

The Dial and Hands

With so much going on design wise with the case and bracelet it’s nice to see a reserved charcoal grey stick dial. The hands and stick markers are all matched gold and tritium lume with all of the lume being in very good condition. The TAG Heuer logo at the top of the dial comes in the traditional red and green and adds a nice detail. The overall condition of the dial and hands is very good.
