The place for discussing 1930-1985 Heuer wristwatches, chronographs and dash-mounted timepieces. Online since May 2003.
Added to OnTheDash -- one of my favorites of the "Pre-Viceroys" . . . This one with serial number 222856, and ordered by the Vel's Parnelli Jones Racing to celebrate the Indy Car championship, of 1970 / 1971.
According to the research by Mark Moss, the Autavias sold in the Viceroy promotion started in the 240xxx range; so this batch pre-dates the Viceroy promotion.
Here is Mark's excellent posting on the bacthes of 1163 Autavias -- http://www.onthedash.com/serial-numbers-of-viceroy-autavias/
Have a look here to see more of the Viceroys and Pre-Viceroys -- http://www.onthedash.com/chronograph/autavia-1163-viceroy/
Definitely one of the more common of the vintage Heuers, but also one of the more interesting models.
: Thanks! That one is only a few #'s off from my dad's.
