I really thought about it when they came out a few years ago, but I love my Tag Heuer too much.

I was interested until I saw the price. I bought my Healey for not too much more than that!

Got mine; Sue bought it in August 2010!

I also have a Tag (f1 Kirium) that Sue gave me around 2001. It's as though she doesn't want me to be late, or something...

I actually bought this one for myself__so I'd have a watch to match every car!

I own one too. It is quite remarkable in that it is a very heavy watch but weighs nothing on my wrist. My wife got me mine on Ebay for a "reasonable" price. It came in the beautiful box with a white over green BJ8 by Kyosho. You can FEEL the quality. AI have a Tag Heuer as a daily time keeper. It is also a great watch.

It came without the watch, but cheap ;-)

Now that we're on the subject: I'd say everyone should own a vintage watch from the year your particular Healey was made . . . .

Speaking of time pieces, my appreciation for vintage style master rally time clocks generated more work that most would want... seems to be a theme on my car. :rolleye: Anyway, I've NEVER had even a recognized Healey expert (not naming names here), or any self proclaimed ones for that matter, even notice what was done. So, here's my BJ7 dash mounted master rally clock... see if you notice anything....

Steve, you changed the profile of the bottom of the dash to accommodate the clock. Squared it off.

Dash squared off, but
there's no Halda "Speed Pilot".

Of course Hugh and Patrick are correct, but there is a bit more to it than just squaring it off. I found a half dash (right half) that was hanging on a Healey guys wall... no pristine dashes were used in this modification... and spliced the "blip" into mine giving it a double "blip". The result looks like it could have come from the works like that... exact same curves. I think that's why no one notices without having it pointed out to them. The rally time of day clock wouldn't fit on a stock dash. I love the details.

Cheers,
Steve
