Re: Your first Heuer.
In Response To: Re: Your first Heuer. ()

Hi Fabrizio,

That is a very nice way to start! I think the re-editions were done extremely well - I have seen other brands try this and fail but in my humble opinion they did a great job with the CS3110; maintained the elegance and coolness of the original and the dial looks great.

That is such a coincidence as I am watching one on Ebay atm! The Lemania 500 movement and the case style I think looks absolutely terrific.

Yes, I had the same feeling now as when you started, to me, there is something very special about being part of this history, helping to keep the Heuer spirit alive and of course taking care of a beautiful watch.


: Hi Amar, I actually had two "firsts": the real first one
: was a re-edition, the white-dialled Carrera with the Lemania
: 1861 (ref. CS3110) and so the real vintage first was a black PVD
: ref. 510.501 with the Lemania 5100 a few years later. Many other
: watches have come and gone, but these have stayed - actually the
: 510.501 did go but I missed it so much I had to get another one
: "back home" ;-)!

: Yes for me too it was the racing connection and the tool-watch
: look. Plus the fact that at the time it was quite niche, so it
: gave you an idea of being part of a somewhat special circle.
: Cheers,
: Fabrizio
