    Warning: This listing of a Heuer / Hervue pair on CraigsList (Glascow) -- screen shot shown below -- appears to be a fraud.

    I know of someone who saw this same listing in late 2010, sent money...

    Re: BARGAIN OF THE DAY ROLEX CHRONO ON EGAY

    Interesting chronograph set-up . . . seems to have only the chrono second hand, with no minutes or hours. So capacity of this very useful chrono will be 60 seconds.
  8. Re: McQueen's Le Mans Racing Suit: "Flipped" for Huge Profit

    And why, just why is this on watch talk ?[/quote]
    Steve McQueen and the movie Le Mans are closely associated with vintage watches, particularly the Heuer Monaco. The racing suit has the "Heuer"...
  9. Re: McQueen's Le Mans Racing Suit:

    This is correct for new watches, but things are very different in the world of vintage watches. We see many instances in which someone sells an old watch at one price, then sees someone else sell...
  10. McQueen's Le Mans Racing Suit: "Flipped" for Huge Profit

    What if you sold Steve McQueen's Le Mans Racing Suit for $155,000, and then watched your buyer "flip" it, a few months later, for $984,000?

    Read the story, here --...
  11. Re: New Bracelet / Watch Combination (Heuer Content)

    then again, it could be much worse . . . or to quote dr. suess, in Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are?, "muchly more worse"!!

    another JB Champion, this time with the full-on bling (before it...
  12. Re: New Bracelet / Watch Combination (Heuer Content)

    I thought about that, but I am happier keeping it more free-form. For example, it was good to hear your general perspective on bracelets.

  13. New Bracelet / Watch Combination (Heuer Content)

    I was so excited to post these photos on another forum, and so far have received two very negative reactions to this bracelet (or, prehaps, this bracelet on this watch). And there are no supporters,...
  14. Re: Heuer Porn of the Day (HPOTD) -- Two Automatic Autavias

    There is no significance to the dates. When I am taking these photos, I am picky about the location of the hands (usually having them at around 10:09, the so-called "happy time"), but I don't pay...
  15. Heuer Porn of the Day (HPOTD) -- Two Automatic Autavias

    Re: It's all in the dial - Heuer Monaco

    It's great to see these beauties outside their cases, with the dials fully exposed.

    It's also good to remember the "worst case scenario" . . . the dreaded melted black gasket. Shown below -- in...

    Unthinkable.
  19. Re: Heuer Porn of the Day (HPOTD) -- Four Automatic Autavias

    Any watch that sells for at least 30% more than it's worth is called a "Derek Bell".

    So when the time comes, I hope that they are all Derek Bells . . . even the Viceroy!!

  20. Re: Heuer Porn of the Day (HPOTD) -- Four Automatic Autavias

    Well, the objective is to get the main time-of-day hands to be sitting at approximately 10:09 ("happy time", when the watch will be smiling), and I like the look of (a) the chrono second hand being...

    Re: Am off to New York..

    LouS has provided some excellent recommendations -- NYC is a great place for watch hunting, once you get away from the "usual places" -- Tourneau, Wempe, etc.
