Re: Here's a Third One -- Here in the US

: hi jeff

: this all starts to look a little strange,
: though with a little extra research i've
: found the entry in a 1970 dutch catalogue.
: the watch is an 1158S. the 1970 version uses
: the second type narrow hands where as this
: last version uses the later, 73 on, wide
: hands but there's no reason to supose that
: Heuer didn't continue to make the watch even
: if they did not list it in the catalogues.
: the catalogue entry show different dial
: markers but the 1158CH entry next to it
: shows the same markers on a champagne dial,
: so again a mismatch compared to the
: catalogue but nothing out of the ordinary
: there.

: i say a little strange because 2 is coincidence
: but 3 is something else. it sugests that the
: seller is not telling us everything in the
: listing and i would guess that the original
: source is the same for all 3 or are there
: more?

: i don't think that the use of genuine and
: correct parts to repair a damaged watch has
: any great effect on the value. at least it
: means someone has serviced it?

: bruce


My name ins Roman and I have a carrera 1158 CHN. It is rare as it's fine definitions on the champagne dial are black (noir) and the date on the bottom ist white on black.

Interested? contact me on my email.
