Vintage Heuer Discussion Forum
The place for discussing 1930-1985 Heuer wristwatches, chronographs and dash-mounted timepieces. Online since May 2003.
: Does anyone know where I can find some
: information about a black and gold Heuer
: Executive chronograph, model No. 216.406.
: I have one that was purchased second hand but
: no information as to when it was produced.
: Thanks for any help
the Executive range was produced in the mid 80s. your watch should have a black case and bracelet with gold highlights, bezel and face. it should be fitted with a quartz chronograph movement, though it was also available with an automatic movement. the only reference i have is a 1986 catalogue & the list price was $1150 for this model. i would conclude that the Executive had a very short lifespan, perhaps no more than a couple of years.
i hope this is of some help
