All, I am new here and trying to search for that needle in the hay stack. My father was a watch repairer in Hong Kong. He passed away in 1975. I migrated to Australia in 1976 with his box of belonging which I have never opened until I did a clean up couple of months ago. Amongst the things in the box is a working, possibly repaired, black dialed Heuer Carrera Dato 45. I am reasonably sure that the watch doesn’t belong to him as I don’t think we could afford having one at the time. I can only surmise that the owner of the watch, for whatever reason, failed to claim it back. I did a bit of research and realize that it is now a watch of some value. I am quite happy to return the watch to its rightful owner if 1. He/she can identify the watch with the number stamped on the case; or 2. Name the shop that he/she deposited the watch in for repair; or 3. In case it is a private repair job, my father’s name. This offer is absolutely unconditional (except that the claimant is to pay for freight from Australia) and will be open for 6 months, after which I shall pass the watch to my son.
