Vintage Heuer Discussion Forum
The place for discussing 1930-1985 Heuer wristwatches, chronographs and dash-mounted timepieces. Online since May 2003.
The Carrera section of the OnTheDash-website shows two different examples for the Carrera 12 Deci.
The first execution (left) has a silver dial with silver subdials and a blue decimal scale. Note the different surface treatment where the deci scale is printed.
The second execution (middle) has a silver dial with white subdials and a recessed white ring with a black decimal scale, and of course the 2nd execution hands with the black stripe.
Currently there is a very nice looking 2447 D for sale on eBay, which features a plain silver dial with a black deci scale (right). I have seen this plain deci-dial with black scale on some Carrera 45's (3647 D), but not yet on a Carrera 12.
The dial looks certainly genuine and not like a reprint. What puzzles me bit is the fact that the hour subdial "cuts off" the upper part of the "50", which is not the case on the examples shown on OnTheDash.
Can any of our experts shed a light on this dial? Have you seen this before?
Thanks and best regards,
