I am reluctantly considering parting with my 1960s vintage Heuer 3646H watch.
It is this exact model from this On The Dash page: http://www.onthedash.com/chronograph/autavia-second-execution-case-second-execution-dial-reference-3646/
It is not an Andretti; it has the triangle shaped hands and the lume dots at the 5's with the double dot at the 12 position.
Serial number is 59057 and I believe the manufacture year is 1966.
I had it restored in 2018 by S. Craig Bergsma and I have his report and list of parts & services performed. He estimated the watch in its current post-restoration condition is worth about $14,000.
The watch is mechanically perfect. Cosmetically the 2 small dials are rather faded, and the back & case have some scratches. I have not found a way to host a picture on the internet so I could attach it to this post, but if anyone is seriously interested I can email pictures upon request.
I say "reluctantly considering" because this watch was my father's, but I find myself less in need of the watch than I am of the money I should be able to get for it, assuming Craig Bergsma is correct about his value estimate.
So I am entertaining offers & feedback/opinions, and I will sell for what I end up considering a right price assuming someone makes such an offer.
I am not going to put in on eBay or other generic auction sites.
Please contact me if interested in more details and pictures.
