Love it Shaun !!
I looked and looked this one with a lot of interest. The whole co-branding thing doesn't generally appeal to me but this pairing of Heuer & Beechcraft makes perfect sense to me - as i stated at the start - i love it.
Huge bonus that its on the H link bracelet, a much better look and feel in my opinion.
Had i not already a pair of Calc's in my collection i would have raced you to the finish line on this one.
Well done !!!
Cheers - Darren
: This finally arrived in the mail today. It's a watch I've been
: trying to buy (without luck) for the last five years. A limited
: edition Calculator produced for the Beechcraft aircraft
: manufacturer. Thanks to Jurgen and Jeff, firstly to Jurgen for
: posting a "heads up" in the ChronoTrader forum (which
: I missed), and then thanks to Jeff for provoking a discussion
: about Jurgen's post (which I did see). The Calculator came from
: the same seller as the beautiful 1163 GMT that everyone was
: excited about. Of course, the ugly duckling Calculator was just
: ignored in the excitement over the GMT!
: The thing is, long, long before I was interested in Heuer watches I
: was interested in airplanes; the Calculator is pictured with one
: of my favourite books when I was twelve, the legendary (to
: some...) Observer's Book of Aircraft. Anyway, I think is a very
: cool watch and a key component of Heuer's aviation heritage.
