For the Moment, Agreeing to (Respectfully) Disagree

For the moment, we can agree to (respectfully) disagree.

We have all written a lot about these watches; I can't think of any new evidence, one way or the other (although an opinion from Nic Green is itself an important development in the analysis); I may share a couple of thoughts, as time permits or if we have any new information.

Thanks for your posting . . . always good to hear from the old-timers.



: i just personally believe these to be real....for one the dial has
: perfect tritium round dot markers which can be seen as having a
: degrading effect to the paint on the dial...this sort of patina
: cannot be faked and tritium is vintage. Other branded dials can
: be seen with the same tritium markers and patina.

: So my theory is that Heuer were making these for other bands as
: well as themselves, not sure when? if right at the end of Monaco
: production?

: We have seen that some case back are blank which would be for the
: other branded watches again in theory. An all blue dial would
: not be an attempt to fake but was perhaps cheap to manufacture
: along with no raised markers ... the other branded watches dials
: where all painted in similar fashion.

: The trouble we find is there are many prob no branded watches
: redialed and faked to sell as "vintage heuer"...thus
: the minefield.

: I recall a letter of authenticity from Tag Heuer issued for
: one...some info here
