I'll do you a couple of photos of my 844/5 when I get it back.
Thanks... and please feel free to suggest any missing models!
I assume you've seen this list?
No I haven't actually, thanks. At some point I guess I will have to address the pre-1985 models as well, especially as there's no clean cut off between the two.
Thanks Albert, good man! I've also found the strap number so it's CAW2118.FC6285!
I tell you what, as incomplete as this list is, it brings home to you just how many of each model there have been. For example, I've already got down 86 Monacos, and that doesn't include the old Heuer models. The Carrera, F1 and Aquaracer ranges are huge as well.
Love the H01 wall clock, shame about the price!
I'm a little bit puzzled by the strapcode for the CV5040 as FC6180 is a black alligator strap for deployant (according to a search on chrono24) however the watch came on a blue alligator with pin buckle.
Yeah, me too!
Is it actually FC8160?
Yes, I seemed to have referenced the full code correctly in my threads but completely forgot I had done that.
Great, I've amended that on both blogs.
I've done the first stage (transfering all the model codes from the gallery blog) and I'm steadily adding the photo links, I'm 2/3 way down the 6000s now....
Speaking of celebrating more than 1 million views of the WRUW thread. This thread just passed 1000 posts
Sweet! Think I've done enough for today, I'm down to the end of the Aquaracer chronographs!
Jesus, I flipped through two little old catalogues and found another 34 watches.
Just noticed in a '4000' mini catalogue I have that the part number is the same for watches with a bracelet or with a strap... but in the price list that came with it it says 'Strap' after the number. This applies to quite a lot of part numbers, and then the same applies even with watches that weren't available on straps, so from that I conclude the old XXX.XXX numbers didn't determine the bracelet or strap style at all!
Also, it seems the difference between the 999.206 and the 999.206K was that the K version didn't have lume on the bezel...
