Hi guys,
I am offering this completely original & untouched Heuer Autavia 1163MH with all the paperwork, a NOS corfam and tag.
Please keep on reading because this may be a great opportunity.

To avoid any confusion this is an early 1163MH, dated 1970 with only 1163 between the lugs and the correct serial 222xxx.
The interesting thing is that we would expect the watch to come with an MH bezel but the tag and papers show very well that it came off factory with a Tachy bezel.

For the description I can be very short. The watch is 100% original and never touched.
I guarantee that. This means the case has never been polished and dial and hands have the original tritium.
Bezel and plexi are also the original.

Case as said untouched with some signs of normal use but still very very good. I think my pictures tell enough.
The sunburst effect in the upper case is completely intact. Serial and reference number also super crisp.

The dial is absolutely perfect. You will not find a better 1163 dial than this one. Same goes for the hands.
Both have all the original tritium that has a super sweet creamy color. Also the lume dots at 3,6 and 9 are perfect.
Subdials perfectly white. Also have a look at the picture taken under UV ( picture nr. 3 ).

The caliber 11 movement is very clean and runs perfectly. Same goes for the chrono.
I give a 12 month guarantee on the movement. We all know how desirable these caliber 11 movements are.

Model: Heuer Autavia 1163MH
Serial: 222xxx
Movement: Heuer caliber 11

Ok, so I am offering the watch with a NOS corfam, with all the papers you see in the pictures and the tag. On the tag you will see on one side the Heuer name with the price of 650 Deutsche Mark.
The other side showing the reference 1163MH and Tachy-R, referring to the fact this is an early 1163 with Tachymeter bezel.
The red automatic box is not included in the offer but it can be available in case the buyer would want it.

Price: looking for offers starting from 3500 euros ( watch + corfam + paperwork + tag + fully insured shipping with FedEx )

Make no mistake guys, if the highest offer would only be 3500 euros, I will sell the watch for that price.
Of course I am hoping for more. I guess the true value is between €4500 and €4800 considering the fact it's an early 1163, the condition, all the papers, the tag and the NOS corfam.
The highest offer takes this fantastic set. I reserve the right to end the bidding at any time in case I get an offer that I find high enough.

Payment: Bank transfer or PP ( +4% )

( I give a full refund in case of any problem or if the watch would not be as described )

Best regards,
