I am just a poor boy...

I am just a poor boy
And my watches they are old
I have squandered my last dollar
On boxes full of stainless, such are chronographs
It's not a Heuer
Still a man buys what he wants to buy
And searches for the rest.

My apologies to Paul Simon. I went to an NAWCC Regional event in Northern Indiana today and ran into a friend of mine who buys watchmakers' estates. He had just bought a hoard from a guy who used to be a Benrus dealer. Among the tools treasures and trash was a box which held an NOS Heuer 2446C GMT...except it has a Benrus dial. After some negotiation, I bought it. I can't help myself. Anyway, the below photos tell the story. It appears to be in every way a Heuer...except for the mark.
