Why We Love it
Why We Love it–
We love vintage Heuers because they epitomize the essence of vintage racing chronographs, and the Montreal is one of the coolest.
The Montreal is a relatively obscure model that is little known outside of collector circles. Introduced in 1972 featuring a number of similar design cues to the more established Autavia and Carrera collections, the Montreal effortlessly exudes that "70s thing" we love so much. With an oversized cushion case with fine sunburst brushing, the case is remarkably similar to the Mark II Speedmaster, but is powered by the Calibre 12 automatic chronograph movement instead of the Omega's hand-cranker.
This particular model, a Reference 110503 BC, features a gorgeous blue dial with contrasting white subsidiary registers and luminous red hands. The Calibre 12 Montreal came in seven different configurations, and this one stands apart with painted markers (versus applied), and red timing markers in the 30-minute counter. Call us partial, but we love think this configuration is tops!
In excellent condition throughout, this Montreal is a rare find, retaining a crisp, nearly perfect case with factory brushing and a flawless original dial and handset. If you’ve been in the market for a Montreal, we don’t have to tell you how rare it is to find one without a beaten case - never mind minty! Coupled with the Calibre 12 movement, original NSA Bracelet with signed clasp and a crisp blue dial, you have quite the package.
