    Thought it might be worth a thread on the early heuer models.

    Info seems a little sparce.

    As a starter I wonder if anyone would recognise this one I spotted on an auction site?
    Valjoux 22
    Case seems consistent with 50s


    I really like the look of but can't find anything else like it and also fearful it's a redial.

    At first glance it certainly appears to be a redial. The dial configuration, lume, particularly on the Arabic numerals, printing, etc., are not consistent with anything I have seen from the Heuer of that time. The condition of the dial and the artificially bright yellow numerals are a pretty good giveaway for a watch this it attempting to look like something from the late 40s - early 50s.
