Hi guys,
Putting up for sale probably the best Heuer watch I have ever owned.
Heuer Autavia 1163 "Siffert", mark3 with the very wanted flat "V" dial and ridged markers.

When I bought the watch it was completely original and untouched.
The only thing I had done to it was a full service by my watchmaker and a case refurbishment by Abel Court.
I know this might be a somewhat controversial decision but we all know what Abel can do with an Autavia case.
And given the condition of the dial and hands I still stand behind this decision. I know the case may look a bit too new but that is only a question of a couple months.

So the case we don't need to discuss. It's perfect.
Dial and hands have the original tritium and the color is just perfect to me. Not too dark, not too white. Just that nice creamy color.
The incredible thing is that the dial is just perfect with not one spot, not one scratch. Blue accents super strong. It's impossible to find a better Siffert dial I think.
Please ask if you want to see a picture under UV.

Plexi is still the original one, it sits lower than most plexi you will see on later 1163 references.
Tachymeter bezel is in a very nice condition though not mint. It's the original so I preferred keeping it.

Mechanically the watch is 100%. Movement is super clean. I forgot to make pictures of the movement but I will on request.
Pushers super crisp and clean. Chrono perfect as well. The watch comes with a 12 month guarantee on the movement.

Model: Heuer Autavia 1163 Siffert, Mark3
Serial: 143xxx
Movement: Heuer caliber 11

I am pricing the watch pretty sharp. I think I am not exaggerating when I say this watch still has an enormous potential.
I know the Heuer market is weak. So I am pricing it accordingly. But try to imagine what the chances are you will ever find another ridged markers Siffert in this condition for this price.
So in one year, maybe two years people may realize what an incredible bargain this watch was.

Price: 14.500 euros ( insured shipping included )
( straps or even a GF BOR may be discussed )

Payment: Bank transfer or PP ( +4% )

Best regards,
