Congratulations on this find . . . as you saw yesterday, we love the "before" and "after" stories. So be sure to get some good "before" photos.
Will you do the repairs / restoration yourself, or do you have a good watchmaker, but are only looking for the parts?
Next question, if you will be needing a watchmaker -- where are you located?
Hopefully, this barn find will become a beautiful watch!!
: hey guys Im hoping for your help with an old Heuer Autavia 1163
: with serial 225xxx. This watch was literally found in a box in a
: barn. The crown is missing and one of pump pushers is missing,
: badly needs a crystal also. I used a caliper to measure the only
: pusher left and get a measurement of 4.95mm. Looking for any
: advice on what exact parts I might need and where to find them.
: please and thank you guys in advance
