: I know nobody cars about these later watches like the Montreal and
: the Pasadena etc. However, I think yours with the dial and the
: lume is particularly handsome. I have my favorite "no
: name" Pasadena which seems to have found a place in the
: permanent collection. I think you should keep this little
: stunner. You can always get the Speedy....and everybody has a

I agree the speedy pro is almost as common a watch as a 36mm Datejust. Every watch enthusiast in the world can sport it 10m away. A Heuer like this will be recognized on wrist by maybe 1 in 100, which has its own subtle appeal.

What I'm also struggling with is assessing what the market value for a B is? All the e-bay records I found were for black dial models with polished cases, bad lume, in need of servicing. Really hard to find comparable and see how close/far I am from speedy purchasing power as well.
