Up for sale this incredibly good Heuer Autavia 1163MH, 3rd Execution, also called "Derek Bell".
Some people know I am big fan of all the ref. 1163 black dials.
I started my Heuer collection with an 1163 and I never lost my passion for them.
So offering here another one since I just cannot keep them all.
For those not familiar with the watch: http://thoughts.onthedash.com/thoughts/field-guide-to-the-heuer-autavia-reference-1163-black-dial/
Case in very good condition with a super nice sunburst effect in the upper case.
The bevelled edges as they should be and very sharp. You will see some old dirt between bezel and upper case.
I always consider this as good and that's why I keep it like that. Of course this can be easily cleaned.
Dial is the another strong point of this watch. It's just mint with also the subdials perfectly white.
Dial and hands have all the original lume ( I checked under UV light ). Even the lume dots at 3,6 and 9 o'clock are still super strong.
All the parts original, even the plexi.
MH bezel in a very nice condition, slightly fading to a nice charcoal color.
Mechanically the watch is working perfectly. Keeping very good time, strong power reserve and chrono starting and resetting as it should.
Pushers very clean and making the correct crisp sound when pushed.
Model: Heuer Autavia 1163MH, 3rd execution
Serial number: 203xxx
Movement: Caliber 11
I realize I am pricing this watch on the high side. But I believe it will be hard to find another one in a similar condition that is cheaper.
So even if it is not cheap I still think the price is fair. First to accept my asking price gets the watch. I will consider lower offers as well.
Price: 5200 euros ( fully insured shipping included )
Optional: black corfam small holes: +375 euros
Payment: Bank transfer or PP ( + 4% to cover for my fees )
( I give a full refund in case of any problem or if the watch would no be as described )
