Carrera ref. 3648 T

I got this nice vintage Carrera from a guy in Turkey. The watch was in good shape and runnig fine.

Carrera ref. 3648 T

The goldplated Carreras are always a bargain as they are not in demand as the stainless steal ones. This is a early one with first execution dial and hands. There's no black stripe on the hands or the hour markers on the dial.

The movement is Valjoux 92 signed Heuer-Leonidas.

If you look for a vintage Carrera on a bugdet, the goldplated ones are the one for you. They are still possible to find for a steal...

A little orange one

This is a little cool diver for the ladies. If you have one of the full size vintage heuer divers 980.007 or 980.005, this one will be a nice match for the lady in the house.

Ref. 980.011 28mm

There's plenty of black dialed 980.011 on Ebay, but these orange ones are rarer. Mine arrived complete with blue Heuer box and a genuine Tropic strap with a original 14mm vintage Heuer buckle.

These small diver can be picked up for a fraction of the cost of a full sized mens watch. Great fun!
