    Dear OF Family:

    For your consideration, selling a very nice 1971/2 Heuer Autavia 11630T which was purchased by me from Abel Court, who is probably one the most reputable watchmakers specializing in vintage Heuer. The watch was thoroughly serviced by him back in 2018 and has since been worn sparingly spending most of its time in a climate controlled safe.

    Overall Condition: what attracted me to this particular watch is it’s originality and provenance, specially coming from Abel who only deals with exceptional pieces. The case, dial, hands, crown, pushers, bracelet & endlinks all are what set’s this watch apart from other examples.

    Case: is unpolished to my eyes and in great condition for it’s age. The starburst finish still quite visible, and when exposed to direct sunlight, comes life and shines bright. The reference and serial numbers are clearly visible between the lugs.

    Dial & Hands: absolutely flawless and in excellent condition. The vivid color combination of bright orange and black is stunning and quite attractive. It’s what draws you to this watch. There are no cracks on the lume and the orange paint on the hands are in pristine condition. No blemishes or discoloration on the dial and markers to speak of, just spectacular condition for it’s age.

    Bracelet: highly desirable and coveted original Gay Freres with HLF endlinks and clasp dated 4-72. It was just expertly lightly refinished and shows very little stretch, it’s the iconic 70’s look.

    Movement/Service: the reliable caliber 12 was last serviced by Abel back in 2018 but has been sitting idle for quite a long time. The watch operates as it should, chrono works and resets to zero. I suspect it might need calibration just because it hasn’t been regularly used.

    Price: these don’t come up that often and is tough to gauge the market. I’m asking $6,850 USD wired which includes overnight shipping & insurance in CONUS, International shipping at buyers expense and responsibility. I do not accept PayPal or any other form of payment.

    Refund Policy: all sales are final, refund only if not as advertised.

    I have tons of reference on OF and am happy to provide upon request.

    Feel free to shoot me a PM if you have any specific questions.

    Thanks for looking.
