FS: Early Heuer Autavia 1163MH Flat V

Hi guys,

Offering a really nice and all original Heuer Autavia 1163MH from my collection.
This is a very rare and early edition, probably dated 1969, as the serial number (142.0XX) state.

Both dial and hands have original tritium (still bright in the dark for 30-40 seconds) and nice patina, perfectly matched, so hands are not replacement ones or relumed.

Case is original with some light scratches between lugs due to a springbar during a strap replacement (visible in pic).

Original and intact pushers & signed crown.

Genuine and very nice dial slightly turned brown. It turned naturally, no signs of water or humidity. Ridged markers, correct for that period.
Also original is plexi.

Featiring the famous Cal. 11, the watch was serviced two years ago and it is working perfectly, same is for the chronograph.

I’m offering the watch with an italian hand made leather strap.

This watch is very hard to find in this conditions, we are talking about an early version Autavia with polished hands, ridged markers and flatV as only Super-Jeff can explain in the following video at min. 8:22

In this moment there are only two 1163MH on the web, both offered at the price of more than 10.000€

I’m not a dealer, I’m a watch collector so I prefere to tarde it than to sell, even with more expensive watches, but all offers will be considered around € 8.000+shipping

Many references if request and full refound in case of problems or if the watch would not be as described.

Thanks all and Jeff for the space (and the video!)
