Another attractive base metal vintage Heuer, this time a reference 349 from the late 1930’s to mid 1940’s. It features a 36mm case, clean dial design and is powered by the Valjoux 22 manually wound movement - just back from a full service by our watchmaker.
The case is in overall good condition although there are small signs of deterioration to the case finish as is often the way with base metal Heuer's of this era. That said its still very acceptable and looks great once on the wrist! The dial and hands are also in generally good condition, there are some marks on the dial but none that are excessively obvious and overall the dial shows a pleasant and even patina.
All in all an attractive, decent sized piece that will be especially interesting to Heuer enthusiasts.
