To bring it in the line, first check Jeffs Post about the "Five New TAG Heuer Carrera Chronographs for 2023" here. You will see the series of new Carreras, same dial layouts and case/pusher.

Heuer Logo Printing Tool for dials discovered – and telling something new!

How amazing is that discovery made by Cenic Watches? A printing tool for printing Logos and lines on dials for Heuer. It seems that the Heuershield, A&F, Meister, Gübelin and Sternzeit Reguliert were printed in the Heuer factory on demand, 40 cliches came with the tool, mostly all that Heuer ever used. How crazy! So whats new? Printing dials for Meister etc and also just plain [...]

How to change a bezel?

Change a bezel on an Autavia or Skipper To replace a bezel is very essy if you follow some tricks: - inspect closely the slot betwesn the lower part of the bezel and the sunburst of the case: usually there is a point where the bezel sits a bit higher and there is a bit of light between them - there I put a thin [...]

The “sandy” Skipperrera

From time to time we see dials with patina. Some patina looks just "no way" but some - like this paintless wonder - looks amazing. Look what a guy from Australia found: a really rare FAB.SUISSE (3 known!) Heuer Skipperrera 7754! Thanks to Clarke for the infos and pictures, this is definitely a watch to wear!

Aquastar Regate 1st exec Service

After found a very rare early 1st execution Aquastar Regate with Felsa 4000N in the "container case" a service was needed. So sent to THE man for these kind of watches - Richard Askham in the UK.  He did all well and tried hard to fix the pusher, that doesn´t switch back to zero not perfect from time to time but he was "beaten by the [...]

Dundee

Many years ago as I started researching the Yachting Wristwatches I met online Hervé, known in the french forums as Dundee, on IG he is @Dundee64. We texted and mailed a lot about the different executions of Yachtingrafs and he sourced some to me as I sourced some to him. Over the years we talked always from time to time about this and that and watches. [...]

Aquastar Regate with Felsa 4000N – found an amazing 1st execution

We know the nice early Aquastar Regate with Felsa 4000N special modified movement as the queen of the 5 dots, branded with Heuer for the 1967 Amercia´s Cup Race with INTREPID. Till now I didn´t recognise that we can see 2 executions of that. Big thanks to Pete, who is writing a book about Aquastar with a chapter for the Regattas. He pointed me on that and [...]

Always asked: how many Skipper are out there? Nobody knows exactly, but here are how many from every execution are known or seen till today. Please - I am not sure about the real numbers, I put all in I have ever seen - without knowing the way they did through a sale or trade etc. So the real number might be slight different and smaller [...]
