Unknown Heuer Autavia 773303???

Hi all,

this is an unusual one, forgive me that I need some guidance here (see images below):

I got an Autavia on eBay that has a manual 7733 movement with Heuer bridge, white dial with black subdials but it is not a Siffert color scheme despite a blue second hand. Also the right subdial seems strange, the numbers are facing another direction and are different than the left one and I have never seen long lines as markers...

The reference number is 773303 (never heard of) and the serial number is 215342. The seller claims its a military version (the dial has tritium markers). Honestly, the price was good so even if a Frankenwatch I can still use the parts, but any guidance is welcome here.

Many thanks to Jeff and this forum!!!
