Heuer produced black dial 1163's since the introduction of the Chronomatic movement, one of the worlds first automatic chronograph movements, in 1969.
The dial and hands went through a few iterations over the early years of the model,
This 1163MH is NOT one of the watches that were part of the Viceroy promotion.
So, what exactly is the difference between a Viceroy and 1163MH ?
The main difference is that the Viceroy has the reference number "1163V" engraved between the lugs, instead of just "1163".
The 1163MH is a reference 1163 Autavia, and the MH denotes the type of bezel insert (minute/hour).
Today the 1163V is the most commonly seen vintage Autavia by a large margin, making the 1163MH the more interesting black dialed Autavia to collectors and by far more rare.
Let’s put it this way, the 1163V would be the Rolex 5513 and the 1163MH the 5512. They’re all great watches, but the 1163MH/5512 has just a little something extra.
This watch offer a tremendous value proposition compared to other vintage Heuers;
Whether you’re looking for your first Heuer or just need a black dial to round out your collection, the 1163MH is a fantastic watch.
Dial, hands and bezel are on amazing condition with bright colors as you can see on pics.
Case is just mint with still almost perfect sunburst on upper case and really sharp.
Both serial (223xxx) and model number ( 1163 ) are clearly visible between the lugs.
Movement is the Cal. 11i working just fine and accurate as is chrono function.
Watch comes with Replica Corfam and Heuer buckle and red box;
