First owner Viceroy

It's always great to find a "full set" /  first owner Heuer Autavia 1163 Viceroy, especially when it is in this 100% untouched, never worn condition. It's like a timecapsule taking you back to the year '72. The watch comes with its orginal red Heuer box, filled in papers, black corfam with small rally holes and the very rare "sun"-buckle.

There are a lot of replica corfams on the market and sometimes people ask me how you can recognize a real one. Well let's say that if you have doubts it's not te real deal. The real original corfam that came with these Viceroys is extremely stiff; in fact  it's not comfortable at all to wear. And very often some parts of the strap fade from black to a tropical brown colour.
