The Super 2000 was launched following the TAG purchase of Heuer. Building on the success of the 2000 product line, these new flagship models added several embellishments and improvement. The most obvious is the uni-direction rotating time-lapse bezel with gold shield stations at ten-minute intervals and matching crown and pushers in gold.. Immediately inside that, a rehaut insert with tachymeter scale adds new functionality to the chronograph. The dial received significant upgrades with gold bezels for all the subdials and luminous hour plots inside gold bezels. The matching gold hands feature large luminous fills to match the hour index.
The stainless steel case and bracelet are entirely satin-finished, giving the large diving case of this tool watch a much softer look while providing a subtle backdrop to the polished gold components and the flat sapphire crystal.

The Lemania 283 (LWO 283) movement is a tricompax (three subdial) chronograph movement with date, and has the following technical specifications; Friction Protection: 40 Jewels, Power reserve: 42 hours, Diameter: 30.00mm, Thickness: 6.50mm.
Modular chronograph on a base ETA 2892-A2 movement (which is recognizedfor it's accuracy and durability), operating at 28,800 pulsations/hour is using a Glucodur quality balance and an Nivarox #1 hairspring. The end result is one of the most reliable automatic chronograph movements on the market. One of the unusual things about the Lemania movement is that the date optic is part of the movement. It magnifies the date without the need for an unsightly bulge on the crystal or the distortion of the underside crystal optics.
