SUNDAY READING: HEUER CHRONOGRAPH'S

Heuer Chronographs, written by Arno Michael Haslinger and published by Callwey is THE go to book on Heuer vintage chronograph watches. Featuring well written and carefully researched details on the watches, including history of the models when relevant, the book has excellent photography combined with classic, usually racing, images. As well as being an all-round great guy with a gifted sense of style and humor, Arno Haslinger is also internationally regarded as a leading authority on vintage Heuer watches, apparently he knows a thing or two about vintage Porsche 911's as well.

 Perhaps the most famous of them all, the Monaco Ref. 1133B is well documented.

In 2010 Bonhams auctioneers in London held a special sale of 'The Hasligner Collection' comprised of 100 Heuer watches from Arno Haslinger, many that had been featured in the book. The selection offered attracted world-wide media attention and drew a new base of collectors to the brand. The auction achieved 100% sold, setting numerous world-record prices for Heuer watches. A true success story.
