:i'm glad you brought it up. every cal 11 i have seen has been gilt (silver). every cal 12 i have seen has been gold/brass. i was trying to figure out if this was a case of a swapped bridge? or a super rare cal 12? or......?? i'm listing guesses here. what do you guys think? thanks in advance!
: there was an nos 110.213 Verona sold on ebay
: this weekend.
: whilst it seemed perfect in every way, one
: small detail seems wrong and i wondered if
: anyone else had come accross this before?
: the movement was correct in that it was a cal
: 12 (the Verona was released well after the
: change from cal 11 to cal 12) but the
: movement was silver (rhodium plated?) rather
: than gold. every Heuer i own and have seen
: sticks to the simple rule that if its a cal
: 12 it's gold and if it's cal 11 its silver.
: has anyone else come accross a silver cal 12
: or a gold cal 11?
