Heuer – or TAG Heuer – only got limited attention here at Fratellowatches, but that’s going to change today. Recently, I had the opportunity to see the Heuer 300 SLR and TAG Heuer Carrera Caliber 1887 in the flesh and handled both of them. The Heuer 300 SLR is a chronograph to my liking, the column wheel in-house chronograph (although some voices whisper Seiko when discussing this movement) is a very straight-forward but impressive movement.

Also, true Heuer fans will be excited that this watch has no sign of the TAG logo, it’s Heuer only this time.
I’ve written a Heuer 300 SLR review on Watchuseek, like I will do with a lot of future posts that will be too long to post here. However, I will always keep you informed here at Fratellowatches for such long posts/reviews.
