Vintage Heuer Discussion Forum
The place for discussing 1930-1985 Heuer wristwatches, chronographs and dash-mounted timepieces. Online since May 2003.
Reminder that there are some interesting chronographs in the COVID-19 Solidarity Auction, being produced by Revolution and The Rake. The auction closes at 15:00 GMT on Monday, June 22, 2020.
The TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer 02 Tourbillon (Lot 6) is an interesting watch, as it uses the upside down TAG Heuer "Stay Home" logo; a unique piece, as it is the only watch that uses this logo. The auction of this Carrera includes a special experience for the winner -- a visit to the TAG Heuer manufacture to meet with the watchmakers working on the watch and to make the final design decisions, and a trip to Monaco, in Spring 2021, to take delivery of the completed watch.
