    Bit of an odd one. Yes, the dial is from a 1940s Heuer- but the case looks to be from a later period. What's the story of the watch?

    I bought the watch at an antique mart in Duncannon Pa. the crystal was so dark you could hardly see the dial. When I saw the Heuer logo I purchased it for a very nice price and had my watch maker restore the works. Under 500 invested.

    Pete spent just over a year getting it restored for me. I believe he sourced all Heuer parts some of which took a while to find. The dial and case weren't touched. I thought the dial was complete with "good" age and the case has honest wear.

    That's a very nice find. Is this the original case? Those pushers do look 50s/ 60s to me

    The dial is beautiful- you made the right choice in leaving it alone.

    We pretty much thought that it was all 40s era. I'm not knowable enough , that's why I've come here to get better. Pete didn't have any issues with it but I don't think he considers himself a vintage Heuer exbert. I do know if it ticks he can fix it and he works on a lot of high end pieces

    As for the case. That was how I found it. We did not replace or alter the case, pushers, crown only a new crystal.
