    Hello Heuer fans,

    I am in talks with a seller which I’ve had dealings with before, and it was a very good experience. He has a Monaco on offer, a piece I’ve been coveting since I purchased a modern one 10 years ago.

    He has, what I believe a nice example at a reasonable price. The one issue aside from small marks to the case (expected for a 50 yr old watch), is a mark in the hour subdial.

    I was hoping to get some feedback from forum members on whether this would be a deal breaker, something that can be removed (w/o damaging the dial) or not a big deal. Below are a few photos. Any other feedback would also be most welcome! Thanks!

    Only you can say whether it's a dealbreaker or not, but I would certainly expect the asking price to reflect this very obvious flaw. In terms of whether it can be remedied, probably not but you could always check it under a loupe to see if it's not a gouge.

    The seller confirmed it looks more like a scratch than a surface mark. Asking is 9,000, looking what’s out on the market, it seems fair. But I’m far from being an expert.

    And thanks for the reply
