HUGE congrats, my dear friend !!!
In my opinion, the Heuer Fans did not realize a long time how beautiful and even rare this dial version is !!
Also it is the dial with the biggest Subdials, same than the holy grail 2447 - the Panda !
I have two of them - but both not perfect, yours is a true great find !! coming to the right person !
Enjoy to the fullest !
: I've been a fan of the classic manual wind Carreras since shortly
: after I got into vintage chronos and even more so once I
: realized that's what James Garner was wearing in The Rockford
: Files. I acquired and was fairly satisfied with the very
: good re-issue that I owned for a while (CS3111). But being
: pretty much a true vintage guy I sold it in hopes I might run
: into the real thing. Lo and behold, on a recent vacation in
: Europe I did!
: I realize the 2447 S 2nd Ex is not at the top of the Carrera
: pyramid by a long shot but I am really happy with it, all the
: more so for "bagging it in the wild" so to speak. Many
: thanks to my friend Werner who coincidentally posted on the
: "Albino" here not too long ago and so enabled me to
: know what I was looking at (Heuer not being my strongest suit
: and Photobucket's shenanigans not withstanding). It's an
: interesting footnote that it seems Rolex passed on this subtly
: contrasting silver-white dial design for the Daytona while Heuer
: embraced it. I find it quite legible as well as very attractive
: and needless to say I think Heuer made the right decision.
: For the knowledge base this Carrera has a serial number of 92,xxx
: and no model number between the top lugs.
: Thanks very much to Jeff & the members of On The Dash for
: providing such a valuable resource!
: Best regards,
