Re: I vote for the VINTAGE Carrera
In Response To: I vote for the VINTAGE Carrera ()

: I'll vote for a vintage Carrera. There's just
: something about the design and quality of
: the workmanship that looks and feels better
: than the modern ones. There are some nice
: looking Carreras in the modern line-up, but
: I still prefer the manual wind Carreras from
: the 1960's.

: My real favorites are the manual-wind Autavias
: from the 1960's. They always sold for more
: than the Carreras, when new, and offered the
: rotating bezel (which is very useful for
: timekeeping). In my view, the legibility is
: better and the overall feel is better (more
: solid). My guess is that the Carreras have
: increased more in value (compared with the
: Autavias), in part due to the
: "mystique" coming from the Porsche
: Carrera name. The re-issue of the Carreras
: may have also helped the values /
: collectibility.

: OK -- enough of the editirial / infomercial. Go
: with any Heuer (or TAG-Heuer), and we will
: welcome you to the club!!

Hello Jeff. Correct me if I am wrong but I thought the Heuer Carrera came before the Porsche Carrera. Charles.
