Vintage Heuer Discussion Forum
The place for discussing 1930-1985 Heuer wristwatches, chronographs and dash-mounted timepieces. Online since May 2003.
Great acquisition, and having chatted with the seller, he seems like a straight-up guy.
Between this one, and the one that I picked up for you in the atrium of the Atlanta airport, you are "owning" the early Abercrombies, literally!!
Can't wait to see what this one looks like, with some TLC and the work of a good watchmaker!!
: I can confirm I bought the watch. Normally I don't like to discuss
: watches before they are in my hands but I'm sure the seller is a
: decent guy who will stick to the deal.
: I can't comment on the spread of values that Jeff lists except to
: agree with John that they are not statistically significant
: given the small samples. That's the point for me rather than
: value, this first exec Seafarer is something I've dreamed of
: finding since I saw one in the Heuer museum so I am really
: excited about it. It's true that the Ebay one is in
: "slightly" worse condition than the perfect one in the
: Heuer museum, but for me these crazily patinated dials are part
: of the charm of the old Seafarers. Yes, I am sure the scratch
: above the name depressed the value but the point is these old
: Seafarers are now very rare, and the first execution version is
: incredibly rare.
: More reports once the watch arrives, with maybe some colour from
: the seller who has had a huge amount of experience in the watch
: treasure hunting game.
