Vintage Heuer Discussion Forum
The place for discussing 1930-1985 Heuer wristwatches, chronographs and dash-mounted timepieces. Online since May 2003.
I've following your site and discussion group for some time and have to say that I have found it most enjoyable and informative.
I first got into old Heuers through my interest in historic rallying and was lucky enough to lay my hands on a black/black Carrerra 12. The start of a slippery slope.I've progressed onto having a clock combination (Super Autavia, Monte Carlo, Sebring) 'on the dash'.
The clocks do a perfect job, it's just the cars and sometimes the navigator (usually me) that lets the side down.
Anyway I digress, the point of this correspondance is to ask a couple of questions.
Firstly, my Super Autavia (which was the first of my dashboard purchases) has a flat lens. All of my other clocks are domed. I've never seen another Super Autavia in the flesh so I don't know if it is correct. Could anyone enlighten me.
Second, I also own a manual wrist Autavia and a Grey Freres bracelet but don't have the correct end pieces to join the two together. I wonder if any of you know of a pair as I would like to get back into wearing this watch.
