On offer today's an early Heuer Monza (150.501) in great condition. This has just been serviced by Cutter Edge in St Paul, MN (cutteredge.com), which servicing included replacing the stem, automatic coupling wheel, and all gaskets.
Details of the watch:
Case - PVD coated
Case Diameter - 39mm (42mm with crown and pushers)
Case Back - Stainless Steel
Crystal - Acrylic
Strap - 20mm Rally strap with red stitching
Movement - Calibre 15
Serial Number - 343XXX
The dial and hands are in flawless condition, with the lume all having aged identically and not a scratch to be seen. The case is in fairly good condition, given how the PVD can wear; the brushing is still evident, and there's only slight wear-through on the case's left side, and only at the edge. On the back, there wear-through at a few spots (near both bottom lugs, and up top around 1 o'clock), but overall it presents very well. Caseback has usual scratches, but the engraving's still legible (including on the serial number, which is faint but able to be read if held at the right angle). Fluted pushers are crisp; crown's unsigned, as is correct on the early pieces. Mechanically the watch is working perfectly, given recent overhaul, +/- maybe 5 seconds/day depending on position, crisp chrono functions, date flips at midnight. It's a stellar piece.
Am asking for $3400 USD OBO; happy to arrange payment and shipping with buyer. Happy to provide references, or more pictures, or answer more questions, or whatever else. Watch and strap *only* included in the sale; happy to sell the watch stand as well, but it's not included in this sale. Thanks to Jeff, and to CT for the space.
