I am offering for sale my vintage Heuer Autavia chronograph model 1163 V (Viceroy). This piece is easily in near mint+ condition with all parts original to this watch. Here are the specs:
Heuer Autavia Chronograph
Model 1163 V circa 1972
Heuer Cal. 12 automatic movement fully serviced this month
Original Signed Crown
Original Fluted Pushers
Original dial, hands and markers
Original signed case back.
Case is near mint showing minimum signs of wear and I chose to leave it unpolished when serviced so it still has the original finish. Reference and serial numbers are both clearly legible between the lugs.
Plastic crystal is scratch and nick free.
Dial, hands and markers are PERFECT and has NOT BEEN REFINISHED with all colors still bright and printing crisp.
Tachy bezel rotates properly in both directions and shows less than the expected amount of wear.
The 17 jewel micro-rotor movement was just serviced and is keeping excellent time with all chrono functions operating properly and a perfect zero reset for all hands.
I'll put it on a brand new black leather IW strap with matching stainless buckle.
The 1163 Autavia is not the most rare of vintage Heuers but one in this condition really is a lucky find for someone starting their Heuer collection or looking to upgrade their collection with a very pristine piece.
I'd like a quick sale so I'm asking $995 delivered.
Payment via money order, bank wire or Paypal with no fees.
I am a long time Heuer collector and frequent OTD contributor with plenty of TZ, WN, e-bay, and OTD references.
Please e-mail me for pics or with any questions.
