FS: Historically important¬ and rare Heuer Mikrograph¬

I¬īm selling¬ this beautiful¬ and interesting time piece from my personal collection. for those who are familiar with Heuer this piece needs no introduction, for the¬ uninitiated here is a brief history¬ from¬

In 1914, Charles-Auguste Heuer set in motion his company‚Äôs most ambitious project to date. He asked his watchmakers to create stopwatches that were 10 times more precise than any others. It took them just a few months to come up with fully functioning prototypes, equipped with balances that oscillated at 360,000 vph and were therefore able to measure time to the 1/100-second. Each of these round, rather Spartan-looking pocket watches had a large crown that doubled as a chronograph push-piece. The chronograph hand rotated at an unusually speedy pace: once every 3 seconds. There was a counter for two¬ elapsed minutes on the upper portion of the dial. The movement was equipped with an antimagnetic lever escapement and a compensating balance with a Breguet balance spring. Heuer was granted a patent for his chronograph mechanism on Oct. 2, 1916. The Mikrograph sold for 100 Swiss francs, or $120. Its accompanying brochure declared, ‚ÄúNotwithstanding its low price, this is the most accurate measures of ultra-short intervals.‚Ä̬ ¬

This particular piece is a later version featuring the valjoux 76 movement and it is fully functional. The watch is in all original condition, 3 times signed (dial, movement and case)¬ the only part that is not original¬ is the crystal, witch was replaced for this plastic one sometimes in the past. The hands will probably need a light cleaning but it is not necessary. The case and the dial are both in a very good condition, i can see any damage on the dial not even a single hairline crack, it is genuine, no reprint , no fake heuer stamp.¬ The case is also in a very nice condition, as you can see from the pictures
