Offering a really rare Heuer Carrera 73653 Manual Wind.
This model dates from approximately 1974, and is one of the last models to be offered in manual-winding form.
Featuring the tried and true Calibre 7736 movement by Valjoux, this is a very robust and reliable manually-wound chronograph movement.
This particular watch is one of the best 73653 I have seen so far.
Very often the dial shows signs of wear, this one has an absolutely perfect dial with all the original lume intact.
Both dial and hands have the original tritium. Don't let the greener lume of the hands fool you. It's almost always the case with this reference.
So hands are no later replacement hands and are not relumed. I guarantee that. I can provide a picture under UV light if needed.
You will see in my pictures that this blue dial is just stunning and in perfect condition. Also the white subregisters are absolutely perfect.
I really believe it's almost impossible to find another 73653 with a better dial.
Case has some very small nicks and scratches but still looks very nice overall.
Original pushers and crown. Case-back in great condition with the original brushing and no scratches from a bad case opening.
Both serial and model number are perfectly visible between the lugs.
The watch has just been serviced by my watchmaker and is running perfect. Same goes for the chrono.
Model: Heuer Carrera 73653N
Serial number: 156934
Movement: Valjoux 7736 Manual-Winding

Price: 5,250 euros
Payment: Bank transfer or Paypal ( +4% )
( I give a full refund in case of any problem or if the watch would not be as described )
