    Hello Everyone, I am new here and a recent follower of Heuer watches. I am curious to know why the number 9 on the outer part of the dial is written as a 6. Why would they do that?

    If you mean the watch in the post directly preceding yours, it’s the point at which they rotated the numbers 180° for readability purposes. If all of the numbers were in the same direction on the flange, they’d be upside-down on the lower half. Some designs have left it that way of course, but this one hasn’t.

    For a better illustration of this, look at the 23 and 24

    Thanks abrod520,
    Ok, Now I see the bigger picture of the dial numbers being split into two opposites. I like that!

    This is an old thread. However doesnt hurt to post here too.

    I am willing to sell an all original Heuer Val 88 triple calendar moonphase in cash. Has all the correct features: three big subdials, open & 9, correctly signed and number. No shipping. To be picked up from Netherlands.

    Serious enquiries only.
    Thanks

    The Valjoux 88 chronographs were the best what was in the watch market in the 1050th, even Patek used it, more than 200 watch companies made it in the 1950th, but only in very small pieces. mostly only 5 or 10 pieces, sometimes 25, because there was no money after the II. worldwar. they are today the biggest rarities in the vintage watch market.

    I am about to buy one of these beautiful watches. I'm not entirely sure, though, as it is a bit beyond my budget. Hence my question. How would you currently assess the value of a moderately well-preserved, almost certainly original watch? And I'm still interested in whether someone knows how much this model originally cost back in the 1950s? Unfortunately I only have one photo of the movement. Thank you for your answers!

    This thread was meant -as I see it- to help people to get an impression of the value of Heuer watches and not to discuss a certain watch.

    Why don't you start a new thread???

    Here again the link to the Heuer Price Guide which is, as pointed out before, a very good reference guide:

    Hi.
    I have had a Heuer Monaco 1133b Transitional watch for two years, but I don't feel it, we didn't become friends, so I thought about selling it. I listed it on Chrono 24 with a similar price but competitive with others of its kind. I have inquiries, suggestions, some kind of "friendly advice" about the price taking into account the shortcomings. What is in your opinion an adequate price for this watch ? I can provide many more pictures. 1133.jpg 1133 1.jpg 20210209_114848.jpg

    That is a really nice looking Transitional. Case looks really sharp and clean. Dial has a little issue with the sub-registers but minimal paint degradation. Also, looks like there has been a little bit of gasket melt on the dial but hard to tell full extent. Hands may have been relumed (I could certainly be wrong on that but from photo lume on hands is lighter than indices' plots).

    There are a few other Transitionals I've seen for sale recently around 17000-18,000 euros (vintageheuer.com & Abel is selling his) but Christie's auctioned a nice Transitional last fall that realized price of 13750 CHF or 13400 euros--I feel dial was a little nicer condition than yours but doesn't look like it had box or papers.

    I will defer on what I think is an adequate price. It really boils down to how quickly you want to sell it.

    Thank you for your message. The condition of the watch is very good, plus it was serviced last February. I have one more original glass and gasket for it. Serial numbers indicate that this is one of the first "transitional" 20201124_171400.jpg 20201124_171512.jpg

    An original Skipperera ref. 7753 sold quickly for, if I recall correctly, around US$24k. Fair condition at best with no lume remaining, warts and all other obvious 'problems' evident.
