Re: Heuer Automatic, Collectible?
In Response To: Heuer Automatic, Collectible? ()

I like these little watches. I think the reason why they are not more collectable is because when people think of Heuer, they think these little fellas just don't register with the brand collectors. They have a couple of things going for them in my mind...First they are cheap and second, like most Heuers they are nicely designed...balanced and great looking. However they have a lot against them. First they are small and small watches of all types are hard to sell...and second, as I said above, they just don't really fit with the brand.

That said, for a couple hundred bucks you can't go wrong. Buy what you like says I...and said all of my many mentors


...a guy who has bought way too much of what he likes.
