I’ve also way been intrigued with watch complications all my life where I think more is better. So, a moonphase chronograph by one of best sport watch companies is here for sale.   This is my most favorited ‘complication’ and what a beautiful rare example it is. It is in stunning original condition, thanks to the previous collector who cared for it well. 

The 188.505 was part of the specially designed Heuer 125th Anniversary collection, released in 1985.

Rare Ed Heuer and Cie.moonphase chronograph gents watch manufactured in 1985 to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the Ed. Heuer. This watch was manufactured during the same year that Ed. Heuer was purchased by Tag Group (Holdings) SA, after which the company's watches were renamed Tag Heuer. Ironically Heuer had just merged with TAG, so some of the first, and finest watches to be sold under the new TAG Heuer name were designed by Heuer and signed Ed. Heuer & Cie. (Cie = Co.) The absence of the Heuer shield is a wonderful nod to the very first watches that founder Edouard Heuer crafted well over a century ago, a time before they wore the famous Heuer shield.

Dial: in fabulous original condition, presenting very well indeed. Signed "Ed. Heuer & Cie Swiss", hours are marked by black Arabic numerals. The subsidiary seconds dial is located at 9 o'clock; the subsidiary dial at 3 o'clock shows minutes elapsed and the subsidiary dial at 6 o'clock shows hours elapsed when the stop watch is operational. The sweep hand shows seconds elapsed when the chronograph function is functioning. The moonphase aperture is located at 12 o'clock. 

This is a beauty. It is very rare to find a watch this old with vintage style box. Defiantly a collector watch. Please look at all the pictures, as they are part of the description. The watch is working and Serviced. This is a highly collectible watch. Very few left with this rare movement. Sure, to increase in value overtime, and a great addition to your collection. The condition of the watch is the same as it appears in the photos.  The watch is working and is part of our new Certified Pre-Owned CPO Program.  Contact me if you have any questions first.
