A visitor arrived today, on it's way to a spa treatment in Europe. Its a vintage Heuer Monaco Ref 73633B. Powered by a manual wind Valjoux 7736 movement. The case and movement are in fine condition but the dial has been replaced sometime in the past. There are small differences in the script used and the numerals in the sub dials. Fortunately my "Heuer friends" have a NOS dial, and after servicing at Tag Heuer in La Chaux-de-Fonds the correct dial can be fitted.

So, at least for today, I'm enjoying wearing this beauty, while trying very hard not to damage the case or crystal. Very Happy

A few pictures.

Oh man Rick ! You have done it again ! Smile A Short Lesson In Vintage Heuers 803574 A Short Lesson In Vintage Heuers 803574 This one was meant to find it's
way to your collection. Spectacular dial on this Heuer. That blue dial, square sub-
dials, and sporty colors on it are excellent. What a shape on the case also. The
rounded sides added to the square look is GREAT !

Great watch, strap, pics, and pick-up ! Congratulations !

Man, another great Heuer. You're cornering the market on nice vintage Heuers, Rick.
