    Yes, it's a nice watch, especially if you get it at a good price. The gold bezel does scratch up though, well any gold will I guess because it's soft.

    Reunited at last and what a coincidence this thread appeared.

    I wasn't sold it or anything. Put it in safe place and haven't got the chance to go since the starting of pandemic. So yesterday I just go ahead and took this one out from deep slumber.

    So this thread made me realize I don't have a single silver dial in my collection. I got blues, blacks, whites, greys, and even some other colors, but no silver. :(

    This one is probably closest. My 90s Monaco 50 can look silver-ish in certain lighting, but it's really not silver.

    OTOH, my wife seems to love the silver dials. :)

    Forgot about this one. Originally bought for the extras and to find out what meca-quartz was about.

    Thanks Jim! In this case I was spoilt as Heuer had a knack for producing beautiful silver dials it seems! I'll try my hand at a couple more in a bit......;)

    Seeing all the Heuer here (and my own Telemeter) made me realize how i am not "a Rolex person". This is not a post about taking a swipe at Rolex (i used to own Rolex too), it's a good watch, very reliable and won't hurt your pocket should you decided to sell it.
    I totally get that. I just don't understand how someone can collect "only Rolex" and believe me, i met a lot of this kind of "only Rolex person".

    For the same amount of money, i'll sooner go for Moser.

    Anyway just my sudden thought when i look at my long unused Telemeter. It might change over the course of time. Who knows.

    I don't think i'll ever sell my Telemeter though. So far i received 3 offers for it. Very tempting ::facepalm1::

    Otto please remember to learn from the horrible mistakes made by @imagwai

    Never sell a silver dialed watch, it will make your life less joyful
