DUGENA “Big Eye” REF 3207 HEUER CALIBER 12 Tropical Dial AUTAVIA CASE 42MM
1970s Swiss chronograph:
-famed HEUER CALIBER 12 / Dugena 3207 - movement condition is EXCELLENT (even screw heads) see photos
THE CALIBER 12 AUTOMATIC MOVEMENT ALONE IS WORTH €1500+ in this excellent condition!
-Autavia style stainless steel case is 42MM size WITHOUT CROWN, in honest condition (sunburst visible etc), and 21MM lugs
- see photos
-TROPICAL “brownish” dial is original with tritium in place, hands are original as well with tritium showing age/cracking, red date at 6, grey subdials, orange sub dial/chrono hands, Tachy chapter ring, black MH bezel is very nice and beginning to take on a slight “ghosting” effect.
Overall a very attractive timepiece, demonstrating all the characteristics of a proper vintage 1970s big case automatic Swiss Chronograph.
This watch is running well, and RESETTING super crisp every single time - but service history is unknown - I can only recommend getting it serviced for increased reserve time and accuracy.
Sold on new black NATO strap as seen, not the tropic sport in the movement photos.
Please excuse the photos, the watch is actually nicer than illustrated, the photos are not great, but they are HONEST, there was no filters or editing whatsoever.
A bargain for a CALIBER 12 Chronograph for the asking price of:
EUR 1500 FIRM
