    Hello Everyone, I am new here and a recent follower of Heuer watches. I am curious to know why the number 9 on the outer part of the dial is written as a 6. Why would they do that?

    If you mean the watch in the post directly preceding yours, it’s the point at which they rotated the numbers 180° for readability purposes. If all of the numbers were in the same direction on the flange, they’d be upside-down on the lower half. Some designs have left it that way of course, but this one hasn’t.

    For a better illustration of this, look at the 23 and 24

    Thanks abrod520,
    Ok, Now I see the bigger picture of the dial numbers being split into two opposites. I like that!

    This is an old thread. However doesnt hurt to post here too.

    I am willing to sell an all original Heuer Val 88 triple calendar moonphase in cash. Has all the correct features: three big subdials, open & 9, correctly signed and number. No shipping. To be picked up from Netherlands.

    Serious enquiries only.
    Thanks

    The Valjoux 88 chronographs were the best what was in the watch market in the 1050th, even Patek used it, more than 200 watch companies made it in the 1950th, but only in very small pieces. mostly only 5 or 10 pieces, sometimes 25, because there was no money after the II. worldwar. they are today the biggest rarities in the vintage watch market.
