Is this Tag Heuer 2000 972.006 Genuine?

May 05, 2021,09:02 AM

So, I found someone auction this online. The seller claims that it is original with some parts replaced. He does not tell the reference number for this model, but with google search, I identify this as a 972.006(x) model. No photo of the movement inside so far, nor of the backcase. On the dial It says "professional", "200 meters" and "T SWISS MADE T" with sharp prints. But the font used for "professional" seems different from the one used on the 972.006F which has the same dial layout + colorful "Tag Heuer" logo . However, i the font is the same one which is used by 972.013

These are the details given by seller about the watch: - "Screw down, non-original crown" (*my comment: yes, no Tag Heuer logo on that) - "Bracelet" (*: the seller does not mention whether it is original bracelet or not. Judging from the video, those are folded links, not solid). The seller does not give any detail about the bezel nor the hands. From my observation, the hands seems to be replaced (different minute hand design and suspicious "dotted" end on the second hand which never exists on this model). Also there is weird lume pip on the bezel which, again, is uncommon for this model. Any opinion?
