I'm not new to vintage watches, but I am new to vintage Heuer.

I've been bitten by the Carrera bug, so I'm getting familiar with current pricing. In vintage shops with a good reputation for Heuer, it's now common to see $11-$15K for clean, first-execution examples of 2447S, 2447D, 2447T (with the T commanding the high end). But even on eBay, no decent example is going for less than $8K. And anything with clear authenticity and quality, $10K+.

I wish this bug had bitten me a decade ago...
