Footnotes

  • The Monaco model line included automatic and hand-wound versions. With the classy three registers, the deletion of the date, the hand-wound models offer a striking dial design. An important running second hand at 9 o'clock was added for the racing crowd. The Monaco with the reference 73633 G was first shown in the 1970/71 Heuer catalogue. Powered by the Valjoux 7736 movements, the grey dial version was reference 73633 G and reference number codes include an indication of the movement similar to the automatic Monaco. Serial and reference numbers are engraved between the lugs and Heuer Tool No.033 is marked on the case back. The 73633 manual wind case has the same dimensions as the automatic Monaco reference 1133 and the crown is back at its classic manual wind position between the fluted chronograph pushers.

    This wonderful watch has its original grey dial with the contrasting black sub dials and the case back shows all the original brushed finish, also the Heuer Tool No.33 marks are crisp and untouched. The original crown and pushers are unmarked and the watch has the original Heuer black racing strap and Heuer signed buckle together with a red chequered flag Heuer box.
