Up Close- Vintage Heuer Silverstone- Blue and Fume Dials

Following the post last week about the upcoming Heuer Silverstone re-edition, I’ve had several e-mails asking what the new model will look like. The simplest answer is it will look very, very similar to  the Vintage Silverstone models.

Heuer Silverstone- BlueAnd this is no bad thing, because the Heuer Silverstone is one of the most distinctive Heuer models- there’s not much else around from the other watch houses that looks like the Silverstone, a pure slice of 1970s design.

So rather than a detailed review of the Heuer Silverstone, below are a few photos of the Blue and Fume Silverstones to hold you over until the re-editions arrive. Its the Blue Silverstone that seems to be the most prized amongst collectors, but the Fume (or Smoke) Silverstone that has the most distinctive dial- a fabulous metallic star-burst finish that changes appearance depending on the ligh,  a quality difficult to capture in photos.

More photos of the Silverstone pair after the jump.
