Vintage Heuer Discussion Forum
The place for discussing 1930-1985 Heuer wristwatches, chronographs and dash-mounted timepieces. Online since May 2003.
Perhaps this Boxing chronograph is the ultimate example of the prospective purchaser asking "If I miss this one, when will I see another?".
I believe that we have seen two of these, in the community / on the internet. Yes, most of the ordinary Lemania 5100 models have not done well in the market, but this Boxing chronograph is truly rare (and also among the coolest styles, ever!!).
If only I had grabbed this one, 10 years ago!!
