for sale is an used but still good dial for Heuer Autavia 15630.
This dial was originally installed on my beloved Autavia 15630, I replaced it some time ago with a better one (which has stronger orange accents which better matches the mint hands I have), so this goes for sale.
The dial has some small spots here and there and I think probably someone in the past tried to clean it in the central part (not me, I would never touch a dial :-) ), the chromed window around the date hole is missing (as my new dial was missing it so I put it on my dial) but, if you have a worst Autavia dial like this you can swap it as I did (the frame is not glued but fixed via four small pins so can easily removed with a small screwdriver, if I did it with my rookie’s tools I am sure every watchmaker can do the same…).
The orange accents are still quite bright and the dial feet are perfect, the dial is not bent or damaged as you can see from the images.
I tried to capture every detail in natural light to give the potential buyer every information, but feel free to ask me for some more if needed.
This is the ideal dial for someone having a nice 15630 with a damaged (or a worst) dial.
If interested feel free to make me an offer, will not put a price as is not a mint dial… bear in mind I have no pressure for sell it, I just put it on sale because I am cleaning my parts box and hope this will be useful for someone else…
I also put a couple of images of my watch with this dial installed, just for sake of information... my hands are NOS (so the orange is very heavy if compared with hands of a standard 40+ years old watch) so you can compare the orange accents of the dial with a set of NOS hands, but if your hands are a bit faded the orange will be perfect...
Thanks you all for looking and thanks to Jeff for this space.
