 TAG Heuer has reintroduced its famed Night Diver watch as a member of the Tag Heuer Aquaracer Professional 300 collection. The original TAG Heuer 1000 Night Diver – so called because of its full lume dial – was a massive hit for the brand in the late 1980s, helping it to recover from the crippling effects of Quartz Crisis and even earning some serious screen time on the wrist of Timothy Dalton’s James Bond in The Living Daylights.
