Whats's the point?

Awesome. The blue black contrast is amazing. Where did you find that one? I've been trying to find something similar for ages.

The neo-vintage Heuer manual wound chronos are spectucular time pieces. This one in particular is a wonderful example of what made Heuer great. And I prefer them to the automatic ones, with the crown and pushers on the 9.

This is a stunning watch and the proportions are just right. I presume its the black dial. How long have you had it for? I've been lusting after a blue dial for sometime now. The vintage one looks wonderful too. Its one of the few watches that looks great all beaten up!

I think that NonServiam's Heuer is "true" vintage, nothing "neo" about that one. I've had the automatic, and it only has the crown on the left side - the pushers are still on the right. The Royal Oak is a masterpiece, really. The dial was once black, but 30ish years later it has faded to charcoal. Like you say it ages with a bit of grace - as long as one is not polishing it and destroying the finish it can certainly live with its scars. And it has one of the coolest bracelets ever; /M

The RO is lovely, Singular!

I have no idea when the neo vintage becomes vintage. But anything 70s must truly be vintage when it comes to watches?

I also have an automatic Autavia. With a custom display back, just to play "spot the rotor in the cal 12"

Haha, my favourite game - trying to convince people cal 12 is automatic...

I'll leave this one on the brushed strap.
Late on this one but - that watch would look awesome on a brown strap.

Silly me. I stand corrected on the Autavia. Forgot that the pushers were on the right.

More shots of the ROO when you get the chance. Its a beauty. Also glad to know that its a vintage piece. Love it!
