It could be possible that the back was polished excessively and the "tool no 33" could have been removed. It would be better to post a picture of the dial and the case back. Charles.
: Hi All,
: As a new Heuer convert I was wondering if there
: are many fake pre-tag heuers about? Does
: anybody have any scary stories to share. Do
: all Monacos have the tool 033 on the rear?
: My first Monaco, bought two years ago from a
: Munich dealer and friend of my
: mother-in-law's, a three-dial manual,
: doesn't have a tool number on the back.
: Everything else seems ok except the 11
: o'clock marker is slightly sqew whiff. Could
: it be a defected model disguarded. Might it
: be a fake? I guess the only way to know for
: sure is to open it up and look at the
: movement? Can anyone tell me where to get a
: case opening tool from?
: Thanks for your help.
