Ultimate Guide to the Heuer Digital Watches

    Great article David.

    I should perhaps point out, though, that the "Twin-Time" name wasn't revived in its entirety for the Carrera and Verona – these watches are in fact just "Twin"s, indicating the two types of simultaneous display. One of the functions is indeed a second time zone display, which gave the earlier (and later) watches the "Twin-Time" name but that's not what is being referred to here.

    Also interesting to note is that the movement is different between the Carrera and Verona – the Carrera does not have the alarm function of the Verona.

    And even rarer than the rare 16061 is the equally Casio-styled 980.010, with perpetual date and second time zone (again). It's a shame neither watch crops up very often – I presume they were sold in relatively tiny numbers, but both are of interest.

    Thanks Mark,

    Interesting that the movements are different- I guess its an ESA 900.2XX.

    I'm with you on that "Casio Heuer"- I would love to have shown it, but I've never seen a real photo of one- as you say, numbers would have been small.

    The hunt continues….

    Back in 1976, I was given a Heuer LCD watch in England – one of the first to arrive in the country. It was sent back four times to be fixed in the first year. I was at sea in those days and so it took a while to come ashore to send it back to Heuer.

    Anyway, after it was sent back a fifth time for repair, Heuer called me and suggested that they upgrade it to their latest model. Sounds good – until they asked for another 150 UK Pounds.

    So I now have a mint condition Heuer Kentucky LCD Calibre 105 watch in my possession that has run for about three weeks in total.

    Do you think that it's a collecters item, and that I could now get my money back? (Something that Heuer refused to do)

    Incidentally, I replaced it with a "cheap" Timex that took a lickin' and kept tickin' with good accuracy for over 10 years.

    Hi Nick,

    Sorry to hear that it was such an unreliable watch…as you would have read, you're not on your own in terms of having problems with these! Yes, there is a niche of collectors who really like the LCD Heuers, especially one that has been well looked after (box? papers?).

    I have a Carrera Twin-Time that I am looking to sell. No box, no papers but in very nice condition. What would be a fair price to expect?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Cheers.
