In Response To: Re: Heuer 1153 Help ()

Thanks so much Fabrizio, much appreciated! These are really beautiful watches indeed - I love cushion shaped watches as well as chronos with sunken dials, and when I across this model with both those characteristics I knew I had to get one. These are definitely appreciating in price so I hope to get a nice example soon!

: Hello there. The early automatic Carreras are lovely watches and
: probably undervalued nowadays compared to Autavias and
: everything handwound, which is the latest trend as I see it.
: The blue dialled one has a dial that looks a bit “tired” and
: however the pictures are so small and low-res that it is hard to
: make a proper assessment. The white one looks much better
: although the central chrono hand does look a bit askew -
: hopefully something easy to fix. Neither a real bargain but the
: second seems to be a better value for money to me.
: Your watchmaker is right about parts availability, but there are a
: few well-stocked specialists and of course TH too. Do consider
: though which shade you like more. I for one have only bought a
: single watch with a light-coloured dial and while I love it, I
: don’t think I’all ever buy another as I find it much harder
: to read.
: My 2c, for what it’s worth.
: Cheers,
: Fabrizio
