VINTAGE 1950’s HEUER CHRONOGRAPH WATCH WITH HOODED LUGS & BLACK DIAL.

VINTAGE 1950’s HEUER CHRONOGRAPH WATCH WITH HOODED LUGS & BLACK DIAL.
THIS FABULOUS GENTLEMEN’S WRIST-WATCH WAS MANUFACTURED BY THE SWISS MAKER HEUER DURING THE 1950’s.
THE WONDERFUL CASE WITH STEPPED, HOODED STRAP LUGS  AND STEPPED BEZEL IS OF AN UNUSUALLY LARGE SIZE. MEASURING 47mm ACROSS THE BEZEL, NOT INCLUDING THE CROWN AND 52mm TIP-TO-TIP.
THE MATT BLACK ‘BIG-EYES’ DIAL WITH GILT PRINT IS ABSOLUTELY STUNNING & USUALLY I WOULD DESCRIBE THE DIAL IN DETAIL, BUT IT IS DIFFICULT TO PUT IN TO WORDS. I WILL SAY THAT THE GILT PRINT GLISTENS BEAUTIFULLY AS IT CATCHES THE LIGHT, AS DO THE MATCHING HANDS. TELEMETER, TACHOMETER AND INNER 60 SECONDS WITH 5th OF A SECOND DIVISION SCALES FIGHT FOR POSITION, THOUGH SOMEHOW THE DIAL SEEMS UN-CLUTTERED.
THE MOVEMENT IS IN VERY, VERY NICE CONDITION, WITH NO LOSS AT ALL TO THE RHODIUM FINISH. WORKING WELL, THE CHRONOGRAPH STARTS, STOPS AND SNAPS BACK SMARTLY  AS IT SHOULD. KEEPS VERY REASONABLE TIME ALSO, AS EVERY VINTAGE HEUER SHOULD.
THE STEPPED BEZEL HOUSES AN ACTUAL GLASS CRYSTAL AND THE BACK IS FREE FROM DINGS, WITH JUST A LITTLE LIGHT SCRATCHING FROM GENTLE USE OVER THE YEARS. STAMPED WITH THE MAKERS MARK ‘E.D. HEUER & Co.‘ AND THE ASSOCIATED HEUER LOGO INSIDE THE BACK, WITH ADDITIONAL SERIAL NUMBER ‘72358’.
SOME PREVIOUS WATCH-MAKERS SERVICING MARKS HAVE BEEN REMOVED AT SOME POINT FROM THE INSIDE EDGE OF THE BACK, THOUGH I HAVE SEEN THIS DONE IN THE PAST. ASIDE FROM THIS THE WATCH IS FAULTLESS IN EVERY RESPECT AND LOOKS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING ON THE WRIST, TRULY BEAUTIFUL.
THIS WATCH IS AVAILBLE TO PURCHSE ONLINE OF THROUGH BRE BOOKED VIEWING.
