In Response To: An Expensive CamaAutaRada ()

: I have pretty much gotten out of the business of posting about
: the usual eBay and other online fakes, but this CamaAutaRada
: (with a decompression bezel) is noteworthy in combining parts
: from at least three models (Camaro; Autavia; and Temporada) and
: (b) achieving a price of $11,870 (1,300,000 JPY).

: Here's the listing --

: Presumably some value in the decompression bezel and the exotic
: Camaro dial, but how can we explain this result?

Here is what Google translate made of the description:
It is an exhibition of Heuer made in 1974 [CAMARO] chronograph

About 25 years ago I got dead stock at overseas auction and stocked it

After obtaining it overhauled immediately, I only used it a few times privately

It keeps dead stock state almost without scratches at all

In addition, although Hoey [CAMARO] chronograph has a type without a bezel, there are things to see

This type of rotating bezel has never been seen in the past even in the antique market

It can be said that it is a very rare gem

● Valjoux Caliper 7736, 17 Ishinomaki Movement

● Stainless Steel Case

● Waterproof life

● Meter notation on both rotating bezels

● Inca block

● Case size 47mm, weft 42mm

Bezel size 41 mm

● Lug width 20 mm

Original buckle in original leather band (with Heuer logo)

In addition, because it overhauled after obtaining with dead stock

Both the watch and chronograph function
