Vintage Heuer Discussion Forum
The place for discussing 1930-1985 Heuer wristwatches, chronographs and dash-mounted timepieces. Online since May 2003.
Take the dial from the Carrera Sport Chronograph, make the markers thinnner, and drop it into a reasonable size case (40 mm range), and you have a really good looking watch.
Next step -- Thin the hands to match the "weight" of the markers, and delete the "busy" black stripes on the hands, and it should be great looking. Compare it to the early re-issues of the Carrera, and the big difference will be the Heuer 02 movement, which is a fully modern movement worthy of powering a watch to compete in today's market.
And we'll let TAG Heuer continue to make the 44 mm model with the bezel for those who like the larger size.
: Adam asked me to photoshop the markers yesterday so here we go.
: I also placed it in a 39mm case (photo credit to Hodinkee). Looks
: almost exactly like the CV2111. I hesitated putting the new dial
: in a 39mm because I really think they're doing a great job with
: the 160 anniv. heritage tributes this year -- but always fun to
: dissect and discuss.
