Heuer Ref 418 *LINK* *PIC*

A couple years back I inherited a old Heuer Ref 418. The watch had been sitting in a drawer for years and when I received it the timepiece ran and kept good time for a few hours and it would stop. I brought it in for a quote on repair which was expensive. Having a Valjoux 23 movement I was told was something special. I couldn't afford the repair at the time and I got a couple more quotes over time. This December I squirreled enough to have the watch serviced. I have it back and time for a little show and tell. If anyone can tell me a little about the watch it would be appreciated. Oh, this is the second Heuer I have owned. I had a a 41mm grey DLC quartz diver. I sold it to help purchase a Omega Seamaster. Today that same diver is selling for far more than I bought or sold it!
