The collection of Arno Michael Haslinger has been developed with the point of addressing the most awesome aspect Heuer . The collection of historical center quality comprises more than many pieces, including the most notorious models like the Silverstone, Autavia, Carrera, Daytona and Monaco. On the off chance that you at any point considered purchasing a vintage Heuer, this is an ideal opportunity to make a move.

Arno Michael Haslinger is a given Heuer gatherer and even composed a book about vintage Heuer chronographs, that ought to be on each watch collector’s shelf. The first ‘expensive’ watch I at any point purchased was a vintage Heuer Autavia and since that time, I’ve been a fanatic of Heuer (and later TAG Heuer) chronographs. That’s most likely why my subsequent watch was a TAG Heuer Monaco .
The book Heuer Chronographs shows photographs of Haslinger’s own collection of vintage Heuer chronographs and data about these watches, their time span and Heuer’s numerous relations with the race sport. There is for example an outline of Heuer chronograph in the timetable (click on envision to enlarge).
Although I’ve been a Heuer chronograph fan since I started gathering watches, it wasn’t until I read Haslinger’s book before I knew how much Heuer was associated with the race sport. Pretty much every new chronograph that has been delivered since the mid 1960’s has the name of a popular race circuit or race car.
In the book you will discover nitty gritty portrayals, representations, photographs and qualities of 81 of Haslinger’s vintage Heuer chronographs. Numerous pictures, dashing adverts from the time and some unpublished pictures make this complete book an outright joy for all engine avid supporters, and help to remember the Heuer watch company’s nearby connection with the symbols of Formula One hustling, including Jacky Ickx, Niki Lauda, Clay Regazzoni, Jochen Rindt, Jo Siffert and Steve McQueen in the faction film Le Mans.
For me the uncommon Jo Siffert Autavia is as yet one I couldn’t imagine anything better than to promotion to my collection. I once possessed the re-issue of this specific model, the TAG Heuer Autavia re-issue , with comparative white dial and dark subdials. Sadly I exchanged the watch in no time and as of now lamented to selling it before it was shipped off the new proprietor by courier.
TAG Heuer have additionally made an extraordinary watch especially for this auction. It depends on the recently dispatched Silverstone model and the dial will consolidate Jack Heuer’s signature, a genuine erratic for the insightful collector. All returns will be given to the Green Cross International cause. Arno Haslinger will likewise give his unique Silverstone to this reason and Bonhams will add a further 20% to the sledge price.
