Heuer Solunar Tool Watch 1976 – Ref 279.603

Exceedingly rare Heuer Solunar in exceptional good condition which should make any serious Heuer collectors heart skip a beat. Scroll down to read more about this watch.



This watch was presented by Heuer back in 1976 and was only produced for a short period of 4 years until the production was discontinued.

Heuer is known to have a history of interesting tool watches with Solunar complications in particular. Well known examples such as the Heuer Skipper or Mareographe are known to fetch incredible prices at leading auction houses over the past years.
This relatively new (still 47 years old) model is the latest Solunar example of the Heuer line and made in very small numbers making this a rare and sought after piece.
There are three different configurations of the Ref.279.603 with either all yellow hands (most common), white hands or this playful and rare three different colour example.

The deep blue dial is immaculate with a stunning orangish patina on all eleven hour indictions. Date and week day aperture at the three hour position.

The heavy and large stainless steel case shows little usage with the exception of some light superficial scratches. Both the serial and reference number between the lugs are perfectly legible.
(serial number 328.XXX)

The clean Cal.2790-1 movement runs with superb accuracy and has been checked by our watchmaker. The watch comes with a 12 month guarantee on any mechanical defects (with exception of water and fall damage).

The watch comes with a later strap/buckle.
