Here's a Heuer Camaro 73343N, probably 1970/71, owned by me since 2017 when it was serviced by the BHI-accredited watchmaker I bought it from.
This one is an "exotic" (ie one of the later executions) "Noir" dial without the Tachymeter marking under the crystal, which gives it a clear and slightly less busy look.
It has fluted pushers and a Heuer marked crown, which I believe is original.
The subdials are dished and the rims polished, really catching the light. The dial was black originally but has aged to a beautifully consistent chocolate brown; in the sunlight, it's fantastic.
Watch: Heuer Camaro 73343N
Dial: 2 register, faded to a beautiful chocolate brown; 2nd execution (white short stripe markers)
Hands: 2nd execution
Movement: Manual wind, Valjoux 7733
Strap: 19mm lug width, comes with a little-worn leather strap
Case: 37mm, unpolished original sunburst finish, some scuffs and minor pitting
Serial: 198xxx - one of approx 1350 73343s made; 5 of the 7 variations had "Tachymeter" markings, so quite unusual
I'm looking for £2,900 net to me, including UK delivery. Overseas delivery can be arranged.
The dial is in very good condition; any spots you see in the pictures are dust on the crystal. There may be one or two tiny nicks visible under strong magnification but it's pretty much unmarked. The lume is very consistent: I don't know if it might have been relumed at some point, but the watchmaker I bought it from didn't do that, and wasn't aware of any previous work. If you have any other questions, please ask.

As a collector who sells to make room for other things I'm buying, I'm not motivated by profit - this watch is priced according to what it cost me and as it doesn't get a lot of time on my wrist, it's time to make room in the box!
