Heuer Super Autavia dash chronograph. Will eventually be listed on my website but would rather offer it at a prefferential price here first.
I would class the condition of this as good-excellent, in great original condition.
There are some light marks to the case and bezel, but not noticable. The backing plate has some bubbling of the chrome finish, but only on the back side.
Dial is near flawless, there is some light spotting on the lume of the hands.
The time keeping is also near perfect, though there is no service history, the watch has zero beat error and a good amplitude. The only slight issue being the chrono second hand does not quite reset to zero. I have not serviced this clock, so I would say one is recommended if you want to use it for its intended purpose. Overall, I would describe the Valjoux 5 movement as very clean and does not show signs of being carelessly worked on in the past.
The watch is located in the S.E of England, so viewing welcome if you are local. Please contact me for details. Delivery will be by DHL insured courier and is included in the price.
£3000 or near offer.
Payment by either bank transfer or I can list it on my website, www.retrowristwear.com and accept card payment (Visa, Mastercard etc). Paypal accepted but with a 4% fee.
If you would like references, I trade on Ebay as Retro Wrist Wear, and am also active on various forums including the Omega Forum, MWR and Watch Repair Talk as DelroyB.
