    Somewhere IRI £3 to £6K, depending on final outcome of probate process.

    Oh yes I see what you mean about the '80s Silverstone. Didn't know about that one, and never seen one - you might find one very difficult to find.

    Be very careful with dealers - there are a lot of unscrupulous dealers out there, and even the big names don't always sell good wares especially when it comes to Heuer. Lots of incorrect parts etc

    Bob, if it helps I can tell you privately who I know to be dodgy in the UK and who I have dealt with and found to be good,
    with a few EU and USA notes too.

    I have always taken the view that, as with cars, it is easier to guide someone to finding a good one than to help sort out a bad one. Can't do quite the same with watches but turning up to examine a car for sale while driving the same make with a trolley jack in the boot and the marque's badge on your workshop overalls weeds 'em out fast :cool:

    However surely the resource for buying tool watches is http://www.chronocentric.com/forums/chronotrader which is mainly private sales or semi-private. There are so many knowledgeable people monitoring it that incorrect parts, fakes and scams are called out very quickly. Unfortunately it means the best stuff goes fast too.

    Well whaddaya know, looks like one's just come up on eBay. I have no affiliation with the seller, and no knowledge of this model so cannot confirm if it's correct or if it's properly valued. But an interesting opportunity for someone who wants one of these...
