    Almost every Friday afternoon I found something extra-ordinary from one secondhand shop in MongKok Hong Kong. Taking the afternoon off (again) I discovered yet another Heuer Silverstone that housed a Lemania 5100 movement, the model 510.403, from 1983. Knowing the owner of the shop is handy and quickly came to a reasonable offer. I have read all the related articles in Calibre 11 about this so called "Poor Man's" Silverstone. I already bought the 110.313F from Antiquorum auction and confirmed it has a Calibre 12 within, and my 1133B has the Calibre 11.

    One of the paragraph in the article mentioned about the authenticity of this piece and I just wondered if Calibre11.com can verified if I do have one that's 100% true. The only missing part was the stamping of the model - 510.403 on the case back as mentioned in the article. The strap wasn't the original (came from Omega) but it was fitted with the original Heuer buckle.

    Congrats, you did better than me: I lived in HK for three years and never saw a single decent vintage Heuer for sale!

    Yes, I think yours looks to be in nice original condition- congrats :thumbsup:

    Thanks for the comments. I agreed, living in HK is hard to find any decent vintages apart from Rolex, because Asian people knows about Rolex full stop. However, Heuer is rising from the dead and I was really lucky to find my collection within a month. I will treasured them and on the lookout for an Autavia 2446...
