Vintage Heuer Discussion Forum
The place for discussing 1930-1985 Heuer wristwatches, chronographs and dash-mounted timepieces. Online since May 2003.
Looking back at the year that passed, I guess I will have to deviate from the normal watch acquisitions. I did not go as crazy with vintage Heuers in 2014 compared to the previous years except for a Carrera 2447T.
In fact, I've had to let go of some to make room for a few pieces with the normal seller's remorse feeling (Autavia KAF and 11630P and GMT) after, like this
I did land a nice straight hand Explorer Mk1 early this year and a few other pieces
But my crown jewel for this year would have to be this: my own watch room. Inconspicuously hidden in my library is a tiny watch room to house my collection. I used to have the watchcases stacked against each other.
Here are some pics of the library:
And here's the door leading to the watch room.
And the watch room
That's a Heuer clock right in the middle
Reading materials and watch reference
Auction catalogues from the early 2000
And finally the watches that are housed in this room
Seamasters and Flightmasters
A pretty good brand mix: Zenith A386, De Luca, Bulova Marine Star to name a few
The Valjoux 72 and Universal Geneve Box
If you've gotten this far, I guess this is a Best of 2014 and SOTC combined. Thank you for patience.
More power to everyone this 2015. May all your watch dreams come true...
