Re: Heuer Montreal PVD Case

Yes, the seller sold it for a retired watchmaker. The pushers seem to be correct since they have the correckt shape (they are not round as it seems in the pic!).
I also noticed the peaked hands which are unusual for Montreals.
The Movement is a signed cal. 12 which is also correct for the black Montreals.
The black coated case back on my watch is - in my opinion - the largest problem concerning its authenticity.
Are you sure that these PVD Cases were always made with stainless case backs? Any other ideas from the experts?
Thanks again
