Heuer Could NOT Have Produced This MESS
In Response To: Monaco :"waffle"Reply ()

the more of these I see [ thanks guys, please keep them coming ! ], the more certain I become that Heuer could not possibly have produced something like this. look at the markers, lines in the registers, main hands, messy paint everywhere, etc. can you find any two markers in the same relative position?

for Heuer ever to have produced something this awful seems impossible.

I'll cast my final vote ==>> poor quality refinished dials, with Heuer having no role in creating them

anyone else want to weigh in on this one?



: Hi all,

: Its evening here and I'm enjoying a spicy
: Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon from our
: Western Australian winery, Moondah Brook.
: Very tasty. To top it off "Gone in 60
: Seconds" is on TV. Nick Cage is about
: to poach that awesome GT500....

: Anyway, my post on the Monacos that is missing
: went along the lines of: A few suggestions
: for these dials: 1. Fake. Outright, although
: I think this is un likely: why have we not
: seen any Cal11/12 or Cal 15 fake dials too?

: 2. Heuer spare part, manufactured post
: cessation of Monaco production?

: 3. Late series orignal dials: is it a
: coincidence that on some examples we've seen
: lately, the cases have been refinshed &
: "tool no 033" is absent?

: {....Nick just got that Shelby very sideways -
: yeah....}

: 4. Can we get the info/pics in front of a Heuer
: old timer like Hans, and see what his view
: is?

: Important qualification: I dont own a 3 reg
: Monaco currently (sold a wonderful one-owner
: one last year, & regretted it ever
: since), although I'm after a nice blue/white
: reg one!

: Cheers to all

: Stewart.
