It’s been on a shelf for 30 years, I’m having it serviced and a new crystal installed but I know nothing about watches. It seems the yachting face was pretty rare the appraiser I took it too said he didn’t know because he couldn’t find any that had sold. ...

Good you care about her. Very important to do not polish a Heuer you have. It are highly wanted watches for collectors. Collectors want pure Heuers. A typical beloved watch that have a huge fan base. Insurance can be bought at Hodinkee.

Nice one.
