No, it's a NOS vintage Caravelle by Bulova with a very rare 3D dial. It measures 38.2 mm by 41.5 mm and is 11.7 mm high. The brushed case is finished in a black that does not appear to be PVD and actually looks like some sort of anodizing. The dial has vertical brushing and a 3D effect that ranges from blue, to grey, to almost black in some lighting.

My understanding is that this watch was manufactured by Bulova in the 1970s and it features an automatic movement. It comes on a thin, glove soft, 19 mm strap.

I have been able to only find one other example that was for sale on WUS some time ago. I doubt I'll ever encounter another person wearing one of these. Cool

Not a Heuer, but still very cool.
