    I'm not so sure that any refinisher with a case lapping machine will be able to achieve a factory sunburst finish on a vintage Heuer... Yes, there's probably a few more these days than 10-15 years...

    I agree, while it may just be the rather harsh light in those pictures, the sunburst finish to the upper case seems to have all but disappeared (you can still see evidence on the underside of the...

    When considering chronographs in particular, the ones that spring to mind, are the cushion case cal.11/12 Autavia's like the 1163/1563/11630 etc. I know they're auto vs the Daytona's Val72 manual...

    Apart from that OTT crown and the rather gash power reserve 'gauge', I rather like those. But not 5.5K like. Shame...

    Ok thanks I'll look into that. Suppose I could also just buy an old 6309 dress watch / seiko 5 off the bay and use as a donor, but I guess there's no guarantee it will be in any better shape than...

    Out of interest, is there a recognised / established modern replacement 'drop in' movement for a tired 6309? My 6309-7290 is running very fast ie 60+ secs / day. It had a full service with a seiko...

    Yes, on a new(ish) model like this a recent Rolex service & warranty card wouldn't be that far off the value of an identical age/condition piece with original papers but no recent service (last 7-8...

    Yeah, I think I'm just going to meet him, inspect the watch and then sort the transfer if I'm happy with everything. It's only Paris, so will get the ferry over to Caen, pop in on family in the...

    And from a sales perspective, a dismal failure for Rolex, so relatively few were sold (vs other specialist Rolex models of that era, late 50's). So drop dead gorgeous looks and limited supply, no...

    Hi, two main points to raise here... Budget? 1959 means both Submariner and Speedmaster are 'in range', but a '59 in both, well, lets just say you'd need a fairly healthy budget. Second, birth year...

    16710 just looks 'warmer', no contest to my eyes, but then I've never been a big fan of ceramic bezels or jubilee's. Each to their own though.

    Yup, Bill Rice or Duncan at Genesis, either would do a first class job on an old Rolex. I've used both for my vintage pieces and been more than happy with their work.

    That has a lot of Autavia 1163/11630 about it (without the sub dials obviously)... Like it.

    Very nice indeed. Really liking it on the Rubber B too. Interesting to see that it came from Brufords in Eastbourne, that's where my Speedmaster came from in 1965. Good to see a local jeweller like...

    Laco Himalya - thoughts?

    Really liking the look of this on rubber, anybody else see the attraction? Only an ETA 2824-2 but then at circa £650, that's about par for the course.

    16600 prices are pretty depressed (relative to say 16610 increases). Decent 14060's seem to get more these days. Guess its just less desirable than the Subs and GMTs, that bit more niche. Good value...
