Passion, enthusiasm, knowledge and first class service.

By Ashley Smart

Passion, enthusiasm, knowledge and first class service! That was my experience when I visited Jonathan at the Harrogate Antiques and Fine Art Fair last November. I bought a vintage Heuer Autavia 11630 orange from him and love the watch. If you're in the market for a vintage Heuer, then look no further. Would highly recommend. Already saving for my next one....

The right mix of expertise, quality range of stunning watches and great customer service.

By Anthony H

Whether you are a first time buyer or in the market for a rare Camaro panda, Vintage Heuer is the right place to come. I discovered the range late, but am rapidly trying to make up for it. Jonathan has helped me understand what the Heuer brand means historically and has been very patient while I consider various models. I have now added two Heuer watches to my collection and have no doubt I will be back for more. Get in early though, they don’t hang around as they are very competitively priced.

I bought a nice watch from Vintage Heuer

By Markus Wolfertstetter

I bought a nice watch from Vintage Heuer and since I like to know people in person I’m making business with I decided to go visit the site and pick up my watch by myself. So I went from Germany to England and met Jonathan at Bowcliffe. The location is outstanding and so is the expertise of Jonathan. We spent hours in talking about watches and cars and this is what Heuer is about. I have been really impressed about the knowledge he has and what an honor person he is. Needless to say the service he provides is terrific. We will definitely continue the great relationship and we are working already on the next deal.

The watch totally exceeded my expectations and was in better condition than you described

By Paul

Just a short note to thank you for the great service when I recently bought my Breitling Pupitre Bullhead from you. It is absolutely refreshing to be able to speak to someone with such passion and knowledge about their chosen subject. You can see from the attached photo, that when the watch arrived it seemed to bring out the sunshine.

Did you know Mick Jagger is a Heuer fan?

English singer Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones sitting on a park bench in a panama hat and two-tone shoes, October 1973. (Photo by Anwar Hussein/Hulton Archive/Getty Images) Some great pictures have emerged of Mick Jagger wearing a Heuer Carrera blue dial 1553 in the early seventies. We do applaud his choice the Carrera is a little in the shadow of the racing Autavia’s , the blue dial is quite stunning when you see it in the flesh.

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 vintageheuer.com 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
