Re: Manual for Carrera Re-Edition

: Your situation is amazingly similar to mine!

: I bought a Heuer Carrera 1964 re-edition (white
: face) which arrived 2 days ago. It was
: purchased from an internet retailer but it
: was shipped with the wrong box containing
: instructions for the Calibre 17 movement. I
: know it's the wrong box because I have seen
: the "Classics" boxes that were
: issued for the Carrera re-editions that were
: released onto the market circa 1996 (I
: looked at buying one way back then but only
: just got my hands on one recently).

: Anyway, I will try to contact the retailer to
: see if the box is available but the
: impression I get from reading the posts here
: is that it may be an impossibility. What
: makes things hard is that I live in New
: Zealand and the watch was purchased from the
: USA.

: Anyway, apart from that I'm very happy with it!
: I have about 8 watches, one of which is a
: re-edition Monaco. I thought about getting
: the newer Carrera (with the ETA movement)
: but I thought it would be better to go for
: the rarer manual-wind one that use the
: Lemania 1873 movement.

: Will let you guys know how I get on with
: sourcing the boxes. Hmmm....

: P.S: Steve - did the box you were given that
: have a flip-lid on it, and was it packaged
: inside another cardbox outer box with the
: TAG Heuer logo?

: P.P.S: A big thanks to Chuck for his site on
: Heuer Classics. What an information
: goldmine!!! :-)
Glad there is so much info on this watch. Just bought it at auction and loved the way it looked. I didn't realize it was manual.
Do I turn it to the right or left as both demonstrate clicking when I turn it. How much can I turn it and how many days will this last?
Thanks so much,
