During the past 12 months several people asked me for a nice wearable Viceroy.
Didn't have to be mint, just an honest watch, mechanically good and all that for a good price.
Not easy but the watch I am offering here fits all the criteria.
So up for sale this extremely honest and sound Heuer Autavia 1163V.
The watch has just been completely serviced by my watchmaker.
He also installed a NOS plexi since the old one was just too bad.
Dial and hands are in very good condition. Subdials still clean and white.
Both dial and hands have the original tritium ( 3th picture taken under UV ). Lume dots at 3,6 and 9 are fading but still present.
All the red accents in perfect condition.
Case is in untouched condition. I really firm on that, it has never been polished. Even not just a little bit by a local watchmaker.
So the original sunburst is intact, the bevelled edges sharp and even.
The downside is that the case has a lot of scratches and pitting. The good thing is that there are no deep nicks.
So for me this is the perfect watch to use as a daily wearer or to send to Abel Court or Martini for a case refurbishment.
It would take some time but you would get a fantastic Viceroy for a great price.
Tachymeter bezel is not perfect but still pretty good and gives a nice look to the watch.
Mechanically the watch is 100%. I give a 12 month guarantee on the movement.
You are good for many years to come.
Pushers have been cleaned and make that nice crisp clicking sound.
