HEUER Solunar second execution from the 1950s

 

What a stunning watch! Here we have one of the rarest Heuer watches you can find in outstanding condition. The Heuer Solunar was first introduced in the 1940s. This model is the second execution from the 1950s and it is breath-taking. The case measures 36 mm and is chrome plated with a stainless steel caseback. Uncommon for chrome plated cases from that period this one is in almost perfect condition with only light signs of use. The dial is just perfect. The lume is original and the dial shows a beautiful even patina. The watch features a monopusher-function to set the tide. The Heuer Solunar was the very first wristwatch to be fitted with a tide indicator. Heuer produced an initial run of just 1,000 pieces to introduce the new complication. Production continued with a line of Solunars produced for Abercrombie & Fitch. The movement is a modified A. Schild 1188, running strong and keeping time well. The success of the Solunar led to a Chronograph version of the tide watch, called the Heuer Mareograph. While the Mareograph range continued intermittently through to the 1970s, the Solunar disappeared from the Heuer range until being revived in a very different form.
