Hi I recently swapped out my old Heuer for a Jo Siffert 1163T. So this is where I need help.
Thing is I know nothing about 1163T's. When I look up Jeff's site, I see that a 1972 has a serial number of 224XXX for a 1972 Heuer Jo Siffert 1163T.
Reference to the above on Jeff's site is 'E10'
Yet when I look at some people selling "Viceroy" Heuers with the same serial number?? So yep confused! Would someone know is my watch a 1163T Jo Siffert if the serial number is 224XXX.
Other question I have is I was also given a Gay Fereres Bracelet with HLF ends. Do all HLF ends fit a 1163T Jo Siffert? Cause I am having the hardest time getting it to fit. Even Tag Heuer wasn't able to make it fit. But then again they said they have never seen this watch is it a Tag Heuer. Oh my!
If someone could help pass on the knowledge to me, I will definitely pass that knowledge onto others in the future. Have to start somewhere :)
Thank you all.
