    Smile Just snagged a vintage 'grail'

    I just won this mid-'70s Heuer Calculator offered by one of my favorite eBay sellers. I've always regretted selling my 1976 Heuer Daytona to finance other watch purchases, so now I'm feeling good again.

    As you probably know, the "Calculator" has a 46mm rotating sliderule bezel and came equipped with Heuer's famous Calibre 12 automatic chronograph movement.

    Here are the seller's pictures:

    Nice grab Tom! That's got to be one of the boldest watches of that era.

    My actual bid was $28.00 higher, but it was sure tight.
