Beautiful HEUER ultra slim dress watch – special edition.
The watch is a special edition that Heuer made for AL-RODAN GROUP from Kuwait in 1980s, featuring the then-new ETA Flatline II quartz movement.
Based on the striking resemblance with Longines Feuille d’Or (Goldleaf) that was introduced in 1979, this special edition slim line Heuer is deemed to be a result of the collaboration with Longines (Heuer made some watches for Longines in the same period).
This Heuer model was supposed to be made exclusively for American Express cardholders (as presented in a special catalogue – see last photo). The special edition AL-RODAN GROUP Kuwait is so rare that there are no mentions about it.
The rectangle watch dimensions are ca. 24.5 mm x 30 mm not including the lugs and the crown. Total thickness is ca. 7 mm.
The watch is working and keeping a precise time – battery was recently replaced. The extremely rare blue Heuer box has a few marks on it but it’s in a very good condition.
Most of the watches that I am selling are liquidation or collector items, therefor I make no claims and give no warranty regarding continual accuracy of time keeping. Used, antique or vintage watches may need servicing, even if they are in good running condition. Unless otherwise stated they may need to be cleaned, oiled, adjusted and or timed. I cannot guarantee a used watch to be waterproof or water resistant.
