FS: Black Heuer Pasadena just serviced on NOS flared NSA band

Rare opportunity to get a recently serviced Heuer Pasadena with an original flared-ends NSA matching black bracelet still in its original wrapping. The bracelet will enable someone with up to a 7 1/2 to 8 inch wrist to wear this watch, which also makes it easier to sell on in the future. Sizing the bracelet down to any other size is easy, and we’re including a sizing tool with this purchase. Nearly every other bracelet lets down the look of the Pasadena.

The black anodized coating on this watch is nearly perfect. Just a few light dings around the bezel. Pushers and winder show no wear. First version Pasadena circa 1979-82 reference 750.501. Has been photographed intentionally in bright lighting to show you a few marks on the original crystal. Those marks are not very noticeable when you are actually wearing the watch. Great dial with the large rectangular lume plots and matching lume in the hands.

When you buy a vintage watch from Squinky, you also get great deals on straps. Pick any leather or Tropic band options from the vintage Heuer section of when you buy this watch and you’ll get a 50% discount on the extra bands.

The Pasadena’s automatic winding Valjoux 7750 is a very reliable movement and easy one to get repaired or serviced in the future. Features the day and date displays. This is the early version of the watch with Pasadena on the dial. If you’ve been waiting for just the right Pasadena, here it is. Pass up all the other scuffy ones on Speidel bands.
