    Fascinating article, and beautiful watch (beauty in simplicity). I remember watching Garner in The Rockford Files and Maverick with my Dad as a young lad.

    Great article.... I awas also a fan of garner.

    Suspect you've also just inflated the value of the 3647n since celebrity association seems to have quite an impact!

    Thanks everyone!

    I've had to stay quiet on this one for a while. I met his daughter back in Jan for a coffee (thanks to @Jonathan S ) and she showed me the watch. I grabbed a photo...but Gigi wasn't ready for the story to go public yet, as she is quite rightly very protective of her Dad's legacy

    BTW, he was Steve McQueen's next door neighbour! I'm not sure they would have ever compared their watches (especially as McQueen was more of a Rolex man), but who knows? Perhaps they spent a few minutes talking about these old Heuers like we would.

    Great article, thank you for posting. I suspect one typo though and that is that the 45 minute counter is at 3 o'clock, not 9 o'clock.
