David and his wife purchased on Ebay two of the three Blue Dial Heuer Monaco worn by Steve McQueen and used in the movie "24 hours at Lemans" from Don Numley the property manager on the set of "Lemans". David sold one of his two original Monaco to Florian Wuertz of Austria who inturn sold it. The third original Heuer Monaco worn by Steve McQueen in the movie is in the possession of Don Numley according to Suzie, Don's confidant. According to Don there were only three Heuer Monaco's used in the production and not 15. The photo David has displayed of his Heuer Monaco is one of only three original Monacos used on the set and worn by McQueen. All this has been address in previous posting on the Forum. I have reserched all of this and my finding are correct. Charles Rush.
