Vintage Heuer Discussion Forum
The place for discussing 1930-1985 Heuer wristwatches, chronographs and dash-mounted timepieces. Online since May 2003.
Just got out from underneath some work stuff; sorry if my first ever posts here below appear hurried (they were).
Finally, the first vintage Heuer forum site on the net! This was sorely needed and a long time coming. Congratulations and thanks to Jeff, Derek and Chuck for this. Great look and feel to the pages here too.
A bit about myself. Canadian, Toronto born and reside. Software company marketing manager. Owner of the 2 Heuers pictured below. Love 70s/80s chronographs. Currently humming and hawing over what my next will be; either one of those NOS Breitlings from oldworldjewellers or a NOS Autavia from wherever.
A rumination: To my mind, there isn't anything that looks as cool as a 70s era chrono on the wrist; they just have that special 'something' that no other watches have. We owners of these watches aren't status seekers, movement mavens, or brand fetishists. I characterize myself as someone who is interested in DESIGN; and a 70s chrono represents wearable design - 'architecture on the wrist' if you will.
I'll stop before I bore everyone. What's that?, too late already you say.
