    Hi,

    was offered an 1153 BN and here it is:

    upload_2019-3-19_17-3-9.png

    Crystal was totally scratched but after a short polish you already have a plain view on the dial, I think there is still dirt between dial and crystal.
    Watch seem to be in original condition: The dial is very good, hands and markers show fading/aging but most of the lume is still there. Watch is running, date changes, chrono doesn't work...
    I know Abel Court is the man for vintage Heuer Service but he seems to focus on older Heuers and waitung time is very long.
    So whom would you guys recommend for this job? Servicing, cleaning and replacing the missing pusher (cap)?

    Thanks for your help, you can post here or send me a PM if you like

    If you have a pusher or a cap you don't need and want to sell, just let me know!

    Try Chronodeco, there'll still be a wait but maybe not as long as Abel. Or LA Watchwerks maybe

    Chronodeco, (Craig Bergsma) has retired and Abel is booked for the next year plus.
