The resulting watch being functional and stylish. Automatic chronographs had only been introduced in 1969, so the majority of chronograph calibres were still manually wound, the calibre inside this Hamilton being no exception. Although marked ‘Hamilton 643′ on the chronograph bridge, it is actually a re-branded Valjoux cal. 7730, as can be seen under the balance wheel.

The Valjoux cal. 7730 is almost identical to Venus’ cal. 188, produced from 1948 until 1966. Valjoux re-designed the 7730 in the early 1970′s, adding a number of technical improvements, the resulting calibre being the cal. 7733. 1. 2. Some vintage dive love...

The NEW Tudor Ranger Review (part1)

We really love vintage watches. We really, really love vintage Rolex and Tudor watches! The Heritage watches by Tudor are always interesting for us here at Bulang and Sons as they are watches that we can wear day to day, in all circumstances, but they capture the spirit of the vintage pieces that ignite our passion and connect with our love of the aesthetics of classic sports watches. In early 2013 I had a dream (no, really!) That Tudor were going to release the Ranger as its Heritage piece at Baselworld. Ross Povey and Bernhard Bulang. Watches and more. Bernard Watch Blog.

The definitive guide to Heuer

Examples of the "poor man's" Heuers include those manufactured for Aristo Clebar Hamilton LeJour Sears and Tradition, a brand sold by Sears Roebuck Tourneau, the retailer that also markets its own "house brand" Zodiac We point out that in this section, we use the term "Poor Man's Heuer" only to refer to chronographs manufactured by Heuer for other brands. We do not cover other brands that were imitating the Heuers, on their own, the so-called "Look-Alikes" or "Knock-Offs". We also do not cover the brands where the timepieces make by Heuer sold at approximately the same price as the Heuer (for example, Abercrombie & Fitch).

These "poor man's" Heuers represent an interesting facet of Heuer's history and also provide a sensible way for individuals to collect these chronographs on a more reasonable budget.
