Vintage Heuer Discussion Forum
The place for discussing 1930-1985 Heuer wristwatches, chronographs and dash-mounted timepieces. Online since May 2003.
: Shaun: I do not follow the Calculators closely,
: but the consensus on this Discussion Forum
: is that these are being put together from
: parts. A current search of ebay shows that
: dials, crowns, pushers, bezels and crystals
: are available for the Calculator. The
: telltale on the dials is the absence of the
: silver "frame" around the date
I agree with Jeff, not that I'm a Calculator expert though... My example is correct (Hans/ProTime) worked on it a couple of years back, and it definately is what one would see in an old catalog whilst the one's on eBay currently differ. Of course if the parts came from Heuer, one _could_ argue that they are genuine Heuer's, but they were not put together (manufactured) by Heuer... It would be the same thing as a watchmaker (or mechanic) making a watch (car) out of genuine OEM replacement parts. So they are kind of a put together...
Hope this helps!
