Notes:  For your consideration a beautiful Heuer 1163 Viceroy Autavia. While the Viceroy model is far from being considered rare this examples is special for two reason. First it is using a Schmitz case which is mostly recognized by its cut-outs for the pump pushers front and back. Second this case has the mysterious markings the two small arrows on the back of one of the lugs. While its said that this was simply an indication from the transition from the Cal. 11 to the Cal. 12 movement you don't see the markings very often. It seems to have been used sparingly as we have seen Cal. 12 1163V's that do not have the marking. Combine the two with a quality example and you have a very nice reverse panda with red accents. Can't lose here.
