    Heuer ID help - fakes?

    Can anyone help me ID the first two watches which I can’t find in any references? Are they legit? As for the Regatta, it looks different than others I’ve seen - specifically the color of the seconds hand and the shape of the minutes hand. Fake? Thanks in advance.

    Re: Heuer ID help - fakes?

    Hi there,

    I've no clue whether Heuer ever used Landeron movements or even movements without shock devices still in the late 60s (2nd watch), but I doubt both. But I'll never become curious to fill this gap in my knowledge. If I want a Heuer in my collection, I'd take a more exciting piece than a Landeron chrrono, and there are quite many. And if I want a Landeron chrono, I'd take a no-name item in mint condition, instead of paying any brand premium.

    So simply ignore both. Disregarding whether they are fakes (likely) or not (unlikely), they will be by far too expensive.

    Regards, Roland Ranfft

    Thank you for your reply, Roland, I appreciate the input of someone who is obviously a knowledgeable collector such as yourself.

    1st and second examples are blatant fakes - and no, Heuer had no Landeron-based models.

    ...so there's no need to continue with this. Thread closed.

    Quick addition (info by courtesy of mkws): some Heuer chronographs actually did use Landeron movements, though not the standard Cal. 48 series. The Ref. 3147 had a Landeron Cal. 189 which included a date window at 12:00 (which is probably why Heuer used it). So, Landeron didn't only make "primitive" movements!
