Reference 701 / Here's What Makes it Tick
In Response To: Re: Thanks! ()

This is the Reference 701, pocket chronograph, powered by the Valjoux 5 movement - - -

This is the same movement as in the Heuer Super Autavia. These pocket chronographs were also the common donors for the oversized fakes, also made in the Czech Republic.

Jack Heuer recalled that Heuer sold these to the Czech military in the 1960's.
