Vintage Heuer Discussion Forum
The place for discussing 1930-1985 Heuer wristwatches, chronographs and dash-mounted timepieces. Online since May 2003.
It is so much easier writing or talking about a watch that I genuinely like. And the Fragment Formula 1 chronograph cleared that bar by a lot!!
It would be interesting to see a mock-up of the date window treatment that you describe. I'm a fan of the "blacked out" look for this watch.

: To all,
: I just want to comment on an interview Jeff Stein gave to
: International Watch on the Fragment Design Formula 1( Fragment
: Formula 1).
: First I want to give Jeff kudos for a great interview.
: I was amazed how my opinion of the watch changed as I read the
: interview. Jeff's description along with his knowledge of Heuer
: watches is amazing. I am no Heuer watch expert in any stretch of
: the word, but my knowledge increased just reading what he said
: about the watch, explaining its roots and comparing it to the
: watches of old.
: If you haven't read it, you should. The link is above.
: I hope I don't offend him, but my only criticism of his take on the
: watch is I felt the date should have had a white boundry around
: it. Not like the Reference 11063 Autavia with it's layered look,
: but a simple outline in white that is bold yet subtle.
: But again, what do I know?
: Jeff, Thanks for the read
