what do you think about the condition of this Vintage Heuer Camaro from the 70s?
Hi, I would say this looks like a nice example overall. There have been a lot of put-togethers of these due to some empty gold cases on the market, however this seems fully legit and so is quite rare these days. This is the 2nd 73345 that has recently come to the market (assuming they are not the same watch). If there is any chance of getting the serial number, I can double check it further.
I don't love that tarnish or whatever on the top right & bottom left lugs, you may want to look at that closer
I thought that was reflection but you're right AB, it's at the top of the case too. Looks like the plating has been eroded by something...
Assuming that this is a 73345, then it's gold-plated...which can obviously wear over time. You'd definitely want close up images from every angle to identify any worn spots
Curious, as the gold plated watches tend to wear and chip, what is a usual cost if one was to have a case replaced?
Sorry to the OP, but found the question relevant in this case. No pun intended
You'd have to find another gold-plated Camaro case, since it's not likely TAG's vintage department would have any on hand / fabricate one. You can't really simply replate it either since that's quite cost prohibitive - the main reason why GP/GF watches tend not to bring high values.
TAG Heuer will re-plate a watch...but I agree with @abrod520 that the cost will be high
Sorry that was an auto correct, I meant to say refinished, re-plated.
