The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

Here are some of the barrel cased 1970's Carreras. A classic 70's watch, and the blue "cote de geneve dial" is one of the prettiest dials Heuer made.

I think the general view is the "good" are the classic steel cal 12 and cal 15 version. The black PVD (one of Heuer's earliest PVD watches) would be thought of as the "bad boy" of the lot. Then common perception is that gold plated on a tool watch falls into the "ugly" category. Your view may differ....I like 'em all.
