FS: Heuer Autavia 1163MH one of earliest / Chronomatic range

For sale is one of my grails:

Heuer Autavia 1163 MH with one of the earliest serials known.

It's basically a 1163 ridged markers, but has the thick red accents which are common for the Chronomatic models.

This example is in very good and unmolested condition. It comes with an unpolished case, correct fluted pushers and signed Heuer crown.
Serial is 1412xx, which is amongst the Chronomatic serial range and should be the first batch ever delivered from the 1163 models.
Serial and reference number are clearly visible!

The dial is in perfect state, no scratches or dents. Dial and hands lume aged beautifully and remained original too.
The thick red accents and the red sweep second hand have show a bright colour.

The very early Cal. 11 with "short-way" quickest (only the earliest models did have this) has been serviced, runs perfectly and is in excellent condition.

The bracelet is an early GF single grain with the old, short (and correct) clasp. It comes with perfectly matching HLD endlinks. I don't know if this is all correct, think HLF would be more common for this version - but this shouldn't be a big issue.

So, this is a true gem in my opinion, you really don't find them often and I will only let this one go for the right money. And maybe someone has a Chronomatic dial........ ;)

Price: Now that's difficult, but considering the Chronomatic models in the 30-40k€ range, I'm asking 14k€ for this one.

Shipping or personal handover to be discussed.
