Great Framework!! I Will Have Suggestions Soon


excellent framework for approaching the subject.

I will have a couple of Tier 1 candidates for you to consider over the next day or so. Most obvious (to me) is the triple calendar, three register, moonphase chronograph, just added to OnTheDash yesterday. I'm also pondering the enamel dial guys from the 1910's through 1930's.

right now, does Tier 1 = $2,000 to 3,000 (more or less)??

More later.



: I'm reading with interest the postings on the
: Heuer values and the future of the
: marketplace.

: I agree with most arguements and concur (and
: lament) that there is some way to go with
: Heuer values (lament because prices are up!)

: Here's a parrallel case study: I've a 356
: Porsche which too has a vibrant worldwide
: collecting community. Not too long ago
: friends of the marque traded and swapped old
: 356 parts and cars in the spirit of
: community with values rarely coming into the
: equation- someone just swapped a part or
: picked a nominal value and a deal was done.

: Now times have changed and everything has a
: definable VALUE, often sustantial for the
: rarer 356 parts and cars.

: I see similarities here, for only a few years
: ago a core group of enthusiasts (hi to you
: all) were buying and selling Heuers and
: parts amongst themselves (fortunately this
: still does go on- thanks for retaining this
: spirit guys) whilst now we see the emrgence
: of a surge in interest in Heuer and a
: corresponding price increase: simple demand
: vs supply.

: Also, most collectors own not one but multiple
: Heuers and the collecting bug has really hit
: us all!

: So, when a Siffert Heuer brings big money I'm
: not surprised as this is one of a few
: bechmark Heuers that are always going to
: command a premium, regardless of condition
: (a little like anything 356 Carrera related
: !) Here's my list of becnhmark Heuers in no
: particularr order: TIER 1: Siffert Autavia
: Carrera Dato 12
: Carrera 3 reg manual with contrasting dial
: colour (e.g. black, white registers or
: silver with black registers)
: McQueen Monaco
: PVD case Monaco
: Rallyemaster set: 3,6,9,12 Mastertime mounted
: with a 3 button Monte-Carlo

: TIER 2: Regazzoni Blue face Silverstone
: Any early 1st or 2nd series Autavia 3 reg
: Chronosplit LED/LCD (when its working !)
: SuperAutavia dash clock
: Reference 11.404 hand held pocket chronograph
: stopwatch
: Carrera Dato 45 (I like these)

: Pre 1960s Heuer Chronos (what is original and
: what is not??)

: My list for your dissection. What have I
: missed?

: So as Tier one Heuers come up for sale, it
: seems pricing will reflect the rare
: opportunity of purchase.

: Regards & cheers to finding
: "bargains"

: Stewart.
