During the 1950s Heuer was starting to expand their offerings beyond sports chronographs and introduced more consumer-oriented watches which resulted in some very unique watches for both the Heuer brand and just in general. These watch's generally range on the smaller side as sizing standards for men’s watches in the 50s was much smaller than what we see today, however, these understated watches possess true style and handsome details.
