1945 Catalog Showing Ref 2457 (14 KG)
In Response To: Am I correct in assuming *PIC* ()

The 1945 Heuer catalog shows the Reference 2457, a 14 KG three register chronograph. The image from the catalog is posted below.

If we browse some other catalogs and brochures, circa 1945, we may find the exact match . . . I am guessing that it will be a Reference 2547, even if the match is not exact.

The Reference 2457 is part of the Reference 2443 series -- three register chronographs, with square pushers and a snap-back (so not waterproof). In this series, we have

  • the Reference 2443 in stainless steel,
  • the Reference 2457 in 14 KG and
  • the Reference 2458 in 18 KG.

Love the printing on the Tachymeter track!! Beautiful!!

Great looking watch and thanks for your posting!!



: that this is a model 2457? It is 14K.
