Yes, very pleased to give the 1163MH “ridged markers” a new home, greatly assisted by the lack of bidding (perhaps helped a bit by the seemingly confused estimates from WoK). As with Colin’s Carrera, the Autavia is a real solid beaut in my view but came with an unbelievable amount of gunk around the edges!! Where have these been/who lets that happen!? We’ll prob never know - at least these Heuers will now get a lot better care and appreciation!
: Popped along with Lucas Ford today and found ourselves buying two
: great Heuer watches at the reserves...
: For my part I almost missed Lot 69 having got there too late to
: view. However fate allowed a second opportunity it was unsold in
: the auction room and was available for the reserve plus
: Consequently i now have a beautiful and early polyback 3647s
: Carrera (57xxx serial) with Swiss (no T) only eggshell dial and
: razor sharp unmolested case and a ED Heuer signed Valjoux 92.
: Sadly the sun buckle was not present and the plain smooth strap
: had seen better days but I will try various options after
: cleaning the accumulated "body cheese" from the watch
: to reveal its simple beauty
