Vintage Heuer featured in July’s Issue of Oracle Time Magazine

By Jonathan Scatchard on 16/07/20 in: News

Recently we had the privilege of working with Sam Kessler of Oracle Time to embark on a new series of articles detailing some of history’s most overlooked timepieces. Our ‘Unsung Heroes’ series, written by our very own Jake Scatchard, kicked off with the Heuer Camaro- considered the brand’s dark horse in their vintage catalogue. Discontinued after just four years in 1972, the Camaro was a fierce but fleeting effort to captivate a young, American audience. Considered the Carrera’s edgier sister, this 37mm cushion-shaped has amassed a cult following among collectors, causing a gradual rise in price for some of the rarest examples. In the shadow of such giants as the Monaco, Carrera and Autavia, the Heuer Camaro’s innovative spirit remains largely overlooked. However as prices for Heuer’s famed trio continue to soar, the Camaro is witnessing a quiet renaissance as the brand’s best value in vintage. Produced in the late ‘60s golden era of legendary sports watches, the early three register Camaro shares its Valjoux 72 movement with the likes of Rolex’s Daytona and the pre-806 Breitling Navitimer. For the serious collector, the Camaro checks all boxes by merit of its specifications alone. Yet for the modern enthusiast, this watch offers a contemporary flare that many vintage pieces do not. Please check out Oracle Time’s latest publication for the full article and more insight on this fabulous timepiece. Stay tuned for the next in the ‘Unsung Heroes’ series (suggestions are welcome!) We are continually sourcing the finest Camaros- all of which can40

We were delighted to be invited by Tag Heuer to the launch of the museum in motion exhibition in London on November the 12th and very excited and honoured to be asked to a private lunch with the wonderful Jack Heuer. Jonathan was lucky enough to be sat next to Jack and learned of his experiences with Jo Siffert and the circumstances which lead to him  meeting and working with Enzo Ferrari and some of his design principles which have produced such legendary watches. 86 years old and still full of passion, an exceptional man . Old friends who were with us at the beginning , Arno Haslinger and Paul Maudsley added to the fun and nostalgia. A day we will never forget.

We were there when Heuer became ‘Vintage’

By Jonathan Scatchard on 04/11/17 in: Latest News, News

In 2000 FHM magazine ran a series of articles about unusual collections and collectors. They contacted myself because for some time, while working in a retail jewellers, I decided to look for and collect Heuer watches. Nobody displayed the slightest bit of interest in what were then dismissed as “second hand Tags”; I thought it was crazy that a 2447S Carrera would only sell for £250 so I collected any that came my way. After the article I was contacted by Neil Duckworth, managing director of Tag Heuer, who had been with the brand before the Tag takeover and therefore had quite a collection of unsold Heuer watches in his arsenal. We decided to offer both collections for sale through Sotheby’s online which in those times was a very new format of selling. The interest and publicity and success of the sale indicated that there was a greater appreciation for these fabulous old timepieces than I had first anticipated; thus inspiring the creation of which I launched 3 years later. I could never have predicted the heights at which prices have sky-rocketed to today and have no doubt that they will continue to rise. What a long way we have come in such a short time. Enclosed is a link to the press release for the original auction quoting average prices of $600 but Monacos were expected to reach $1500! file:///C:/Users/Jonathan/Desktop/heuer%20auction%202000.pdf

Pictures of Hollywood legend wearing a classic Carrera would often turn up in forums etc, great shots of James in the Rockford Files with this iconic chronograph were shared on the net in various forums with a mystery line of text which could not be deciphered.

Vintage Heuer Featured in GQ Magazine June 2018

By Jonathan Scatchard on 25/08/17 in: Latest News, News

The June 2018 issue of Gentlemen’s Quarterly illuminates both the splendour of modern watchmaking as well as fascinating tales of the field’s past. In the coming month’s GQ Watch and Jewellery guide, Bill Prince details the extraordinary partnership shared by aviation and watchmaking and how this important relationship is evoked through the 2018 Cartier Santos. Furthermore the guide draws attention to newly launched collections to be presented at The Royal Exchange’s fifth annual Watch & Jewellery Week, as well gifting the spotlight to the highly acclaimed carbon-cased TAG Heuer x Bamford Watch Department exclusive Monaco. Recently Jonathan, one of the founders of Vintage Heuer, was contacted by James Gurney to assist with part 5 of the Anatomy of a Watch Collection which explores the value in collecting alternative watch brands. In the article Jonathan attributes the evolving vintage Heuer market to its rich heritage, with each Heuer watch a vibrant symbol of the grandeur of ’60s and ’70s racing culture. Subsequent appeal to enthusiasts of both watchmaking and Motorsports has caused Heuer to make significant noise in the collecting community, causing many to question whether Heuer’s rising market will soon rival larger brands. The full quote from the article reads: Heuer is the brand catching up fastest with the big two and it’s instructive to see how the market is evolving and what Heuer collectors seem to be looking for. Jonathan Scatchard, one of the founders of, has been interested in the brand since the Nineties. As he puts it, the40

The Vintageheuer/Bamford Monaco

By Jonathan Scatchard on 16/08/17 in: Latest News, News

Following meeting George Bamford in 2000 when I had my original collection including lots of “new old stock”, we have continued discussing watches we love over the years. I was delighted when his company, Bamford Watch Department, became the official customisation house for LVMH brands Zenith, BVLGARI and TAG Heuer last year.   The TAG Heuer Monaco “The Dark Lord” has always eluded me and indeed over the years, I have twice missed out on owning one of these beautiful rare watches. Recently George suggested that we should come up with a design which was special to me with all that is vintage and could also add the “twist” that Bamford Watch Department is infamous for.   It seemed like the perfect opportunity and with BWD’s expertise, the Monaco proved to be a perfect watch to work on. We changed the red to orange as black and orange has always been my favourite colour combination. George and his team added the perfect twist by adding chequered flag elements which feature on the hard to find original boxes.   This one off piece is available for £8,500.

A visit to the Tag Heuer Factory

By Jonathan Scatchard on 20/03/17 in: Latest News, News

We were delighted to be invited to Tag Heuer Switzerland to a special vintage watch dealers day representing the UK. First up was a very interesting talk about the whole vintage watch market (which is booming, only the day before in Geneva several world record prices were set at auction) and the sharp increase in demand and price of Vintage Heuer watches. Tag have made a huge commitment to their vintage heritage by investing in workshops dedicated to the restoration and service of these vintage watches. We had a tour of these very impressive workshops and also the huge collection of parts, dials, bezels etc. Finally a visit to the on site museum where some of the most important timepieces from the archives are on display, including one of the Monacos worn by Steve Mcqueen on Le Mans, and even an Autavia supplied by us. The most impressive aspect of the day was the new dedication to the vintage watches which confirms the continuation of the rise of demand and ultimately ensures the investment opportunity of buying vintage Heuer watches. Go to our Facebook page to see some photos of the visit.

What is “New Old Stock”?

By Jonathan Scatchard on 10/01/17 in: Latest News

New old stock is a term used to describe a watch which has laid in a retailers since the day it was bought. Sometimes businesses close and remaining stock gets left in a safe or in attics laid forgotten. The “Quartz crises” of the early seventies quickly made mechanical watches obsolete and indeed old fashioned as battery and digital watches became hugely popular. This meant that many watches by popular Swiss watch brands were left unsold, to find one , unworn, with box and sticker on the back is now the “Grail” of vintage watches and extremely hard to find!

Rare Autavia sells for e195000

By Jonathan Scatchard on 02/09/16 in: Watch News

Eyebrows were raised last week when a rare vintage Heuer Autavia sold very quickly at e195000 on a German web site. The first execution ref 2446 is indeed truly rare as less than 10 examples are known to exist and this one was new to the market, it becomes the most expensive Heuer sold publicly. The tone was set by Christies who sold a slightly later version last year for $125000, even more remarkable is the fact that 2 years ago it would have been expected to fetch around $30000!

Jo Siffert legend formula 1 driver and first to be sponsored by Jack Heuer

By Jonathan_Vintage on 23/07/14 in: Did you know?, News

Welcome to the first in our new series on Heuer watches and the Celebrities and Motor racing heritage of this iconic brand. Our first subject is Jo (Seppi) Siffert who was not only an F1 Winner (Brands Hatch 1968) but a world famous Sports and Endurance racer ( 24 hours Daytona – 12 Hours of Sebring – 1000 K Nurburgring ) he drove Iconic Porsches – 907 and 917 along with Brian Redman. Seppi developed a friendship with Jack Heuer in the late 60’s as Jack had bought a Porsche from Seppi’s Porsche dealership in Fribourg – This led to Heuer being the FIRST brand name to appear on an F1 car that was not automotive related! J0 Siffert reputedly used to sell his watches to drivers – even on the Grid!!   The watch that is most associated with Seppi is the famous Autavia White dial 1163T – affectionately known as the ‘Siffert Autavia ‘– which is highly prized and much sought after.   Seppi became somewhat of a cult hero to other drivers and when the film Le Mans started recording  in 1970 Steve McQueen said he wanted to ‘Look like Siffert’ – so the Striped racing suit was commissioned with the HEUER Logo on them and the watch chosen by McQueen was the MONACO – and so another legend was born ( this watch is still produced today and has become one of the best selling watches ever in re edition for Tag Heuer) .
