Vintage Heuer Discussion Forum
The place for discussing 1930-1985 Heuer wristwatches, chronographs and dash-mounted timepieces. Online since May 2003.
Thank you for your kind comments. It's very nice to know that there is a forum like this where you can get valuable information from the HEUER experts.
I own a small collection of chronographs, both manual or automatics. Most of my watches are in mint condition and I only wear them on special ocassions. My wife can't stop making fun of the watches I own and I rarely wear. My answer for her is always the same... I have plenty of joy just by looking, winding, cleaning, and then putting them back into their boxes.
As for your question about an specific model that I sould like to get... Well that is a difficult question ! Considering that this will be my first HEUER I would like to find an automatic Autavia. Of course my platonic love will be an Autavia Chronomatic Reference 1163T, since it was introduced on the year I was born.
Knowing how difficult is to find a nice 1163T, I will be very happy to get either a 1163V or a 11630, steel bracelet or leather band.
In any case I will keep my eyes open and will ask again for your advise if I happen to find anything interesting.
Please keep this forum going, it's so much interesting and fun ! Thanks to everyone that make it possible.
PS Please excuse my poor english.
