    need help IDing this Heuer. Also, do you think the dial has been retouched?

    Thanks!

    I see several contradictory details here. The general appearance of the dial with multiple concentric tracks looks 1950s, as do the marks at three minute intervals for timing phone calls. However the `T' for tritium lume didn't appear until 1963 and not always then. I have not found a photo of a Heuer with telemeter and seconds mixed in one track although Wittnauer did it for example. The crown looks very 1950s too, but the hour and minute hands are rather late 1960s from the shape and width. Heuers in the 1950s generally had `Dauphine' hands. The case is rather Carrera-ish, which came out in 1963, earlier Heuers had a slightly curved outer edge to the lugs.

    So it is a bit of a mystery, finding some numbers on the case or movement would help a lot, as would a photo of the movement.

    Yes, I think the dial has been re-touched- by adding a Heuer logo.
