    Comparison lume against my Rolex GMTII C. iphone camera so not a fair representation of the lume for the Heuer. Its actually not bad!

    The Heuer would have look enormous back in the late 60's. Comparison against my Breitling 46mm.

    Hope you enjoyed!

    Wonderful watch. These were even made in a TAGHeuer form before 1990 - but not with the Calibre 12 movement.

    Any competent watchmaker can service it. If you need parts, look for other donor Cal 12 watches. If you need case parts, look for other donor Cal 12 Calculators... but the looking will probably take a long while. But servicing rarely requires parts beyond gaskets (which are generic).

    "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

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    Correct, spare parts are a pain in the ass to find because no longer made and the cal 11, 12 and 15 require someone with a high experience regulating modular chronographs
