Vintage Heuer Discussion Forum
The place for discussing 1930-1985 Heuer wristwatches, chronographs and dash-mounted timepieces. Online since May 2003.
I recently acquired a Heuer Carrera 73453 --- my first vintage Heuer (am so excited). I had a question on the brushed finish of the case, as it's hard to tell from searching the web - is the original factory finish on the case meant to be vertical (brushed straight up and down) or a "Sunburst" brushed finish?
Specs of my timepiece:
* Heuer Carrera 73453
* Made: 1970 - 1971
* Serial: 258 1XX
* Mechanical movement 7734
* "first execution" dial (single marker inserts), later "Tachy" ring (TACHY printed @ 1pm), "second execution" hands
If anyone has the same watch (model / year etc), I would love to see some clear photos of the case please!
Thanks in advance!
