Vintage Heuer Discussion Forum
The place for discussing 1930-1985 Heuer wristwatches, chronographs and dash-mounted timepieces. Online since May 2003.
Indeed, I followed the convention of having the main time-of-day hands at around 10:09 ("Happy Time") . . . yes, these watches are all smiling.
I ran each of the chronos to approximately 1 minute and 22 seconds (plus a couple of fifths), just to show that they are "runners" (not stuck at 00:00). This seems to have been Arno's approach, in most of his photos.
Sorry about the variety of dates. Getting all of them to the 24th would have been a real burden.
: I'm not an expert...I'll give this a go... I can see the evolution
: of the hours and minute hands uptil the modern viceroy. As well
: as, the bezel of the modern viceroy being a tachymetre and the
: rest being diver style bezels.
: And the other odd ball thing about the photograph... I noticed that
: the position of the hour and minute hands, as well as, the
: sweeping hands are stopped/positioned at around the same time?
: And the minute counter is set to the same times as well, is this
: a coincidence?
