Re: Not Made by Heuer
In Response To: Not Made by Heuer ()

Jeff, thanks a lot for the information. Its very scary to see a a seller like sold this "FRANKen-watch" for over 1000$. I thought this is a trustfull (right word?) seller.

Btw. I just had the luck to get a near mint Camaro case (73443 - 213789). Do you Think there is any chance to get a Camaro-dial for that? And where to look beside Ebay?
Some Heuer dials are still available NOS like the ones for valjoux 7765. I can get them for about 80.- Euros. But no Camaro-dials from that source. :-(
I dont want to sell the watch. Since I dont have the Money for a "real" camaro, I can live with a put-together camaro FRANKen-Watch. I can get a Valjoux 7733 or 7734 NOS. But not Heuer signed. And I can get the Heuer crown. This all will cost me only about 200.- Euros. So if I could get a Camaro dial for lets say max. 100.- Euros it would be a real bargain. What do you think?

Many thanks to all in that really nice and informative forum!
