After lots of reactions on my teaser shot a week ago I am finally offering this stunning Heuer Autavia 73463 "silver dial" variant.
Interesting to mention that these manual 70's Autavia's were never a big success for Heuer. That was even more the case for this silver dial 73463 reference.
So needless to say that this really is a very rare Autavia. So please don't make the mistake to compare it with the 11630 "silver dial".
This is a plexi manual reference of which only very few were made. So this is really an interesting watch for the true Heuer collector.

I will not say there are only three but I tend to believe that we are on the same production volume level as let's say an 1163 "Orange Boy".
Please correct me in case you would not agree.
Ok, about this particular watch.
I tend to believe it's 100% untouched ( though with case refurbers like the Belgian guy we all know and then the other guy based in Rome it's hard to say if this case has been redone or not ).
For sure all the parts are original ( yes even the plexi ).
So case is absolutely magnificent with a factory like sunburst finish in the upper case.
Bevelled edges super sharp and sides free of scratches and nice and shiny.
So a case we all dream of. I think the pictures tell everything.
That silver dial is to die for, absolutely spotless and those typical vertical lines in perfect condition.
Best of all, everyone will agree on that are the bright fluo orange accents of the dial and hands.
It's just impossible to find them in a brighter condition. Bear in mind that in real it's even more spectacular.
Please note the hour markers have lost all their tritium. I know another OTD member with this exact reference with the exact same (complete ) loss of hour markers tritium.
So maybe it's a common problem on this reference though I have see a couple with all the tritium present.
Movement just had a complete check-up, so nothing more to say than that it's working perfect.

I think most people know my prices are very fair ( well most of the time ). Pricing this watch is pretty hard since it's so rare and there is almost no reference.
Still pricing it very competitively. If you don't like the price, feel free to make me a fair offer. Though I really think this one may sell pretty fast.
Price: 5500 euros ( fully insured shipping and a nice brown & matching leather strap included )
NOS black corfam small holes: +325 euros
Payment: bank transfer or PP ( +4% )
( I give a full refund in case of any problem or if the watch would not be as described )
