Re: There is a famous 'Albino' ... :)

I have never heard the Carrera 2447S referred to as "Albino", this is a first for me too.
There are a few white dial watches which have been referred to by "Albino"...but because they are anomalies and quite unusual for the specific reference. This is simply not the case with the 2447S which is a standard color for the reference...therefore its simply the silver dial.

: Yes and no, Jeff !! It is not really a confusing nick as many watch
: collectors know the famous Rolex Daytona Clapton ALBINO !!

: And if you look at the dial closely - i am pretty sure SINGER made
: them both - there was a short time frame, end of 60s, when these
: kind of dials
: were made. By Rolex it is a over 500k watch - with Heuer, you can
: get a same beautiful watch for less ! :)

: All the best !
