I have a Heuer 2 register small screw back stainless steel case, round pushers. The movement is a 10 1/2 lign Valjoux grade 69.
and Bruce posted the following reply:
This is a very rare watch and is quite valuable (even in Heuer terms), I believe it is a ladies chronograph and made in the 40s.
Normally these watches have a snap back 3 part case with oval pushers set at a slightly strange angle in the case, so yours may be slightly later, perhaps 50s.
I also understand that Heuer manufactured this watch for Rolex (like the tridate). Consequently Heuer versions are rare because they tend to be used to make the massively more valuable Rolex version.
Does anyone know any more?
please post a pic of the watch and I will try to dig out a picture too.
. . . and now we have some photographs:
It's very interesting to see this chronograph.
