    Hi there

    I am being offered a Heuer Autavia, which looks great!!!

    So great!!!! I immediately went into "possibly extreme BS ahead" mode ... (been burnt before :whistling:)

    Since Heuer is not exactly my turf, I would like to ask the collective knowledge here on help ...

    cheers,
    Al

    Yes, it's a 1163 Autavia.

    Looks like it has just come back from a service, given the sticker on the back (it's not a NOS piece, or at least doesn't look to be from these photos).

    The lume looks to be freshly applied- both on the hands and the hour-markers. The lume plots at 3, 6 and 9 are too large and don't look to have been applied well (from one of the photos it looks like some marks on the dial around the 9 o'clock lume plot? Could be the crystal).

    The dial is missing the red flashes at each hour marker- see the image below from Watchuseek (the lume on the hour markers looks to have been redone on this one too, although hands look original)
