Re: My Not-So-Scientific Survey of 25 Samples

Hi Luis, maybe others will comment too but to me this looks fine. All the correct features are there-hands, fonts (dial and bezel) etc. One point to notice is the flat 'ledge' above each of the lugs, which you can see next to the bezel. These were mostly not there on refurbished examples or fake pieces.

My only initial concern was the HEUER shield which caught my eye-partly due to the wider upper space in the first 'E', but there appear to be other examples with this spacing also. Jasper's ClassicHeuer site has a few good examples for comparisons-

Hope that helps!
