I am back in 2013, I am in a bike store where the bike mechanic and a customer are looking watches on the Collection Heure website ( Brussels, Belgium ).
The shop manager is obviously not there. :-)
They are looking at a black pvd Heuer watch ( can't remember which reference ).
Never heard of the brand Heuer when the customer explains to me it's a fabulous brand, overtaken by Tag mid eighties etc...
We all know the story.
Back home I start looking on Chrono24. I decide to give it a try and I buy a Viceroy from Ca Venezze Orologi in Italy.
This could have been a terrible start. But it wasn't. The watch arrived with an original corfam and sun-buckle. That wasn't even mentioned on the website.
So it started with the watch that kept playing a big role in the years to come. Since then I owned some. More than just some to be honest. I prefer not telling how much.
But it can be seen as an addiction.
Enjoy the weekend guys.
