    I feel like a traitor to Heuer if I sell this watch. I am trying to get the back removed and if I do I will post some pictures of the movement. Only one jeweler in my small town and will see what she has for back removal tools.

    So get it fixed, get a new strap (can be as cheap as $8-10 on eBay) and wear it again :)

    I think I have my eye on another Rolex, and selling this Heuer will help with that. :)

    Here are some pictures from the inside. It took the local jeweler about 20 seconds to open it up. IMG_0052.JPG IMG_0057.JPG IMG_0056.JPG IMG_0058.JPG IMG_0052.JPG IMG_0057.JPG IMG_0056.JPG IMG_0058.JPG

    Nice and crusty. Movement looks like it's in decent shape; do not have it cleaned before selling. What I'd do is reattach the strap and take some photos, toss it up on eBay with a $0.99 start and let it run.

    Agree. No point being caught in the middle...I'd either sell it as it is, or go the whole hog and have it restored.
