Gentlemen:

First of all, I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and a fun New Year's Eve! Whilst on vacation in Orlando, I stumbled upon a rare find - the 1887 Carrera Version 2. As you all know, the 1887 Carrera consists of three iterations: 1) the first never made it into production; 2) the second was released in very limited quantities and markets; and 3) the third is the one currently in circulation. I owned a Version 3 Carrera, which I recently sold, and I have ALWAYS loved the second version. To me, it's much more Carrera-ish and true to the Heuer tradition. It's more readable, plain, simple, and elegant than both Version 1 and 3. So, I was very pleasantly surprised to find a Version 2 1887 Carrera with the opaline silver dial that I've always lusted after. It HAD to buy it, and boy am I glad I did. I haven't been able to take it off. Here are some pics for you guys to enjoy.

I hope to do a YouTube video review of this Carrera shortly! May 2016 be a wonderful and prosperous year for all of you!

Very pretty watch. The second to last picture got me thinking about how cool the markers on the dial would look if they were black instead of polished. I think one day I'd like to mod a TH the way all the F71 guys do their seikos.

Very nice. I would love to see it with blued steel hands for the hours, minutes and running seconds.

Beautiful watch! The bracelet reminds me of my SMP 300m.
