Great Information. Thank you.
In Response To: I have the same watch! *PIC* ()

Hello George.

Thank you for the great information concerning the Heuer 3000 chronographs. Great picture of your Heuers. Are they all automatic in the picture? The Buccaneer.

: Hello Charles-san,

: I'm a Japanese old HEUER lover and am new to
: this forum. Sorry for my late response
: because I found your post "Heuer Model
: 3000 Auto Chronograph" yesterday.

: I have exactly the same watch you have(see
: attatched photo below). As Chuck Maddox-san
: had stated, the watch have a LWO283 in it.

: To my knowledge, LWO283 is a separate module
: type chronograph movement which was
: originally released in May 1983 on HEUER
: 2000. The development was done by a
: collaboration between Lemania and Dubois
: Depraz. This development had started at
: 1979. Dubois Depraz calls this monumental
: chronograph module "DD2000".

: I think the LWO283 is basically consist of:
: Engine.........................................ETA
: 2892

: Chronographe module...........DD2000 or its
: variation

: One more remarkable point of this module... The
: DD2000 modules also can be used on some
: QUARTZ movement. For example:
: LWO283...........DD2000+ETA2892(mechanical
: base movement)
: Normline.........DD2000+ESA555111(Quartz base
: movement)

: That's why HEUER had two
: identical-dial-designed chronographs, one is
: automatic, another is quartz.

: At first, DD2000(LWO283) was to be used
: exclusively by HEUER. That was the contract
: by Lemania, Heuer Leonidas and Dubois Depraz
: called "collaboration
: triangulaire". BUT soon Heuer was about
: to bankrupt, and TAG came. TAG abandoned the
: exclusive right for DD2000(maybe for its
: high contract money, I think). So Lemania
: asked the other brands to use LWO283 or
: DD2000. This was the beginning of today's
: separate module type watches which are
: popular and essential(especially for the
: complicated chronographes).

: So I think the model 136.006 is one of the
: monumental HEUER of that period.
