Vintage Heuer Discussion Forum
The place for discussing 1930-1985 Heuer wristwatches, chronographs and dash-mounted timepieces. Online since May 2003.
Great to see you back here again, Patty . . . indeed, you were present at the creation (of OnTheDash) or very soon after that!!
I know very little about the watches that you list, but I see that they are all modern and the price range seems to be between $6,000 and $10,000.
Let me give this some thought, and make a recommendation or two, later in the day, from the Heuers or TAG Heuers.
Of course, the watch has to "wink at you", and I recall that the 1950s Heuers had that effect.
: Hello all (Hi Jeff)!
: It's been years since I've posted here. I've missed you all! I've
: since bought and sold a few watches (with regret, the selling,
: that is). But, life takes us down different paths and our watch
: "loves" come in and out of our lives. In any case, I'm
: looking to buy something interesting (maybe two). I've owned a
: couple of amazing vintage Heuers (Carrera & Chrono
: Abercrombie & Fitch), and currently own three Rolexes
: (Stainless steel datejust, stainless steel/white gold datejust
: w/"roulette" date, and a two-tone Rolex submariner).
: I'm currently considering five watches but would love your input
: on: A) of the those I'm considering, which do you experts think
: is the best option...and what other watch might I consider
: that's not on the list), and B) Which Heuer should I also
: consider? I've loved watches ever since the day my father
: brought home a Mickey Mouse watch pendant for me--I was 5 years
: old. And, I've been wearing "men's" watches since I
: was a teenager in high school--well, before it became popular!
: Watches I'm considering:
: 1. IWC Doppelchronograph ref. 3713. I know NOTHING about this watch
: but recently came face to face with it on HOKINKEE. It was love
: at first sight.
: 2. OMEGA Speedmaster Professional Chronograph (Pro: LOVE the look,
: price. Con. None!).
: 3. 2017 Rolex GMT II white gold "Pepsi" dial (Pro: love
: the vintage Pepsi dial look. Con: price. I'd have been happy
: 4. 2017 Rolex GMT II Traditional Black Bezel (Pro: Traditional,
: Price. Con: Fairly common watch).
: 5. 2017 Rolex Sea-Dweller. (Pro: Beautiful, updated. Con: Size/43
: mm. May be too large. Waiting list...which I'm on).
: 6. Heuer! Which one?!
: Thanks in advance for any information/input/advice you can give me.
: Blessings to you and yours! Patty from Vegas (I believe I was
: living in California the last time I posted here).
: P.S. I don't EVER plan on selling any more watches moving forward.
: I have young twins--a boy and a girl--any watch I have is now
: theirs to inherit.
