I have inherrited this watch from my dad and am currently getting it refurbished and serviced. Sent it away a couple of months ago to get rhodium plated, serviced and a new glass on it.

I was wondering what it is roughly worth for insurance purposes and what would be a good strap be for it, the lugs are 18mm so I've been told. I would like one that has a deployment buckle.

Regards


Charlie

Hi, I have no idea of value, but that is a really nice looking watch, I have an old Leonidas but not a chrono.



Cheers

Mark

I have spoken to the guy who is refurbing it and it will be back in the next month and will post some nicer photos hopefully.

Cheers

refurbished i would think prob around the 375/400 mark, im sure leonidas have something to do with tag heuer from many moons back so they are quite collectable.

That's really cool. How big is the case? looks about 40-50mm?

The guy refurbing it said not to do the face, £310 to service, get working again, rhodium plate case and new glass for it.

Don't know how wide it is but the strap lugs are 18mm.

Cheers

Case is 35mm wide. Got it back today and will try and post some pics when I get my camera from work.

Need a decent deployment strap for it.

Any recommendations?

Cheers
