Pls stop posting again in this thread. We can't afford these beauties of your collection. :D
Here's a few of mine Don't know too much about the Pierce though, so any info/comments much appreciated.
All I can say is that the totalizer arrangement shows that it must have an in-house movement (Cal. 134), must therefore be from somewhere between the late forties and the early sixties and that this movement has the first example of the modern vertical clutch which is used by most modern makers since it ensures a jump-free start of the chronograph.
Wow... this thread is just chock full of nice Chronos!!!
Thanks for all who posted. Here are some of mine for which I have online pics...
A Heuer 3000 circa 1983:
It is based on a Lemania LWO 283:
The same watch, essentially, but with a quartz module instead of a mechanical module (circa 1986):
(I have since decased this movement and moved it to a NOS Heuer 2000 salesman sample dial/case that came without a movement!)
A nice Rodana based on a Lemania (circa 1955??):
A "Poor man's Heuer" according to OnTheDash... a Heuer Lemania 5100 encased for Torneau (circa 1982):
And my Longines tuning fork chrono (Chronometer certified... kinda rare) (circa 1977):

"The watch has to be surrounded by a history. You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter
