Vintage Heuer Discussion Forum
The place for discussing 1930-1985 Heuer wristwatches, chronographs and dash-mounted timepieces. Online since May 2003.
Yes, it is interesting to imagine how many Heuer chronographs and stopwatches, and other types of timing equipment, must have flowed through the pit and paddock at Sebring over the years. Wouldn't it be great to have a "time machine" and set the date to around 1965, just to have a look around?
