In Response To: I agree with John - keep it. ()

: The Speedy will always be there for you to buy later, either new or
: pre-owned. Don't get me wrong though - the Moonwatch is a
: fantastic watch (one on my wrist right now!) but these
: relatively obscure Heuers have a charm of their own - and I
: should know, because the core of my Heuer collection is made of
: L5100-based ones, so pretty close to this.
: You'll hardly find anyone else wearing a V7750 Montreal in the
: wild, whatever the dial colour- so the blue one is really
: super-rare.
: However as Jeff always reminds us, don't confuse rarity with value
: and don't let value drive your choice: if you like it and can
: afford it, keep it.
: I remember seeing only another blue one ages ago, on sale from our
: fellow OtDer Jasper Bitter - I can't remember the value though
: and it was a NOS one.

Thanks for the great advice. Honestly, I don't think this watch is any less a nice heuer because it's 7750 powered. It was made when a 7750 was new and cutting edge, and eta had not flooded the market with robot-made movements. It functions and presents well.

I'm going to wear it a bunch this week and contemplate its fate.
