    Vintage Heuer parts and servicing

    Hi

    I am looking to get a vintage Heuer Bund serviced and the crown tube replaced. I have contacted a number of the specialist watch repairers (eg Genesis) and some have said they donít service Heuers due to a lack of parts availability.

    The service should be pretty straightforward, does anyone have recent experience of someone who can get the parts and will service a vintage Heuer? Any recommendations gratefully received.

    Thanks

    For parts, try

    Thomas Heydolph - theydolph@t-online.de

    He trades as 'namib' on MWR and is very helpful.

    My Bund is currently with Simon Freese

    I’ve got a box of bits somewhere. Used to have crowns and pushers too but none left. Here’s some pictures. Can try and help if you get stuck.

    I currently have a Heuer with Rich, he's done a few of mine, and I've had one done by Simon Freese too.

    Thanks all. I did contact Simon Freese but havenít had a reply. Will try the others.

    Seems like a long wait wherever I look!

    Abel's the only person to go to for a full restoration, his case lapping is second to none. For a basic service and new crown tube it's overkill really. Rich or Simon (and Duncan Potter at Genesis - he's done one of mine too) are extremely good at what they do without the added expense of postage and insurance to Belgium, and you don't have to wait as long.

    I contacted Duncan and he said he no longer services vintage Heuerís due to parts availability.

    I know this is an old thread, but who did you settle on for the parts?

    Vintage Heuer parts and servicing

    Nic Green aka Heuerboy might be worth a shout - itís been a while since Iíve heard much from chat about but he was the go-to person for vintage Heuer in the UK.

    His website is chronomatic.com

    (Apologies if you already got it sorted - just saw how old the thread was)
