    I knew I would be kicking myself on that one. I think I was the purchaser ahead of you, but ultimately I backed out because of the unknown issues, but I knew it would turn out to be a great watch! Was it a simple fix at service? I love that it's V92 and not the 7730 too. Great pickup, enjoy it!

    Ditched the Perlon and replaced it with some Omega leather :unsure:

    You should ask if LaRue can build a line of Omega case opening Armadillos...

    I remember someone posted it on the OTD forum asking about it, right after I had emailed the seller - was that you? :) I sat there holding my tongue hoping I'd have the chance to buy, as I'd been kicking around the idea of a Camaro for a few months but never really connected with one. Then, this! A silver, 2-register tachy dial with a column-wheel movement - I'd never seen the combination before, but had often thought that would be my ideal Camaro ;) Add the original case finish, and I decided to take a chance!

    It showed up with some chrono trouble, that eventually made the watch stop working altogether - which is spooky, but because it wasn't my first rodeo with a 92, I figured it might just need a basic service - which it did. Servicing isn't cheap to begin with, but I picked it up for about market value minus the servicing cost, so I was OK with it. A case cleaning, a light crystal polish, a new strap and it's almost perfect - case cleaning revealed a few scratches on the front of the case, so I wouldn't call it super-investment-grade, but they disappear on the wrist. I've been fooling around in the vintage Heuer scene for almost 3 years, and just felt comfortable enough taking a chance this time - my first "diamond in the rough!" :D

    I just got a new strap for this late, hand-wound Autavia:

    [​IMG]

    This is a Heuer Autavia, ref. 73463T, in the so-called military style with painted indices. The movement is a Valjoux cal. 7734.

    In my eyes this color matching strap enhances the sober and consistent design of the watch. It is also thick and strong enough for the heavy case.

    Have a great weekend,
