Vintage Heuer Discussion Forum
The place for discussing 1930-1985 Heuer wristwatches, chronographs and dash-mounted timepieces. Online since May 2003.
Total newbie here (not sure if I even posted the picture link correctly). My fiance's grandfather gave him this watch in the late 70's.
Using this site, we found out it was an Autavia 11630. Somewhere in his teen years my finace lost the watchband.
It's doesn't run but other than that *g* it's in nice shape. Chcuk suggested an expert watchmaker adn we're going to send it off.
So the big question is, what band it came with the watch originally?
Should we try to buy a vintage band, replace it with a newer one, or try something else?
Thanks in advance for your help!
Oh, the watch was actually scaned with a scanner vice camera...sorry for the picture quality.
